Ricky Gervais has called it quits, saying Sunday's performance will be his last time as Golden Globes host.
The comedian posted the following on his website:
Phew! Thank fuck that's over. I had a blast actually. It was by far my favourite of the three hosting stints. I've told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It's like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realise you didn't die and it was quite an amazing thing to do.
The crowd were great this year too. I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all. Or they were just drunker. Either way, it was fun but I'm glad to say I'm off to New York to chill out a bit. Ahhhhhh. And relax.
We're sad see that Ricky will be ending his hosting run…or is he?!
Last year, Ricky said he wasn't coming back and this year, and some say his jokes were "too tame."
What do U think? Should he try for a fourth go around?
