Ricky Gervais, the 58-year-old British comedian, writer, musician and actor, opened the 77th annual Golden Globes for what he said was the fifth and last time. Known for his biting humor, Ricky never hesitates to make his audience the subject of his comic routine and makes sure that viewers at home laugh a lot at their expense. If anyone was really offended by Gervais, it is doubtful that they would ever have been invited to NBC again, but they were. Now his eight-minute monologue is going viral and people are ringing, hoping that the repeated claims that this will be the last time he hosted the Golden Globes are not true.
With a beer on the podium (the Golden Globes allow you to drink for free at the event), it seemed like Ricky didn’t need alcohol to relax him – nor the audience. Some of the celebrities present seemed shocked and a little surprised by her routine and by the time Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston went on stage to present the first Golden Globe statue of the night, they could barely keep a straight face.

Unlike the Oscars, where the host frequently delivers hints of humor throughout the performance, Ricky’s accommodation functions ended shortly after the comedy skit. He didn’t continue to deliver humorous anecdotes throughout the show, but fans still loved his presentation.
Monday morning, some viewers said that Ricky Gervais should host the next presidential elections in 2020!
Although Ricky’s humor can sometimes be a bit difficult for those who mock him, NBC continues to bring Ricky Gervais back as host and viewers don’t complain.
