Give Ricky Gervais A Drink

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ricky Gervais is hosting The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, but not without a little liquid courage.

The Office funnyman will emcee the prestigious awards show January 17 on NBC, and says that if the gig sucks, he’ll just have a few drinks.

Since the show lasts three hours, Gervais foresees himself knocking back a few between quips.

He explains, “My tie will come off and I’ll get drunker and drunker, but at least the first hour of the show should be enjoyable.”

Gervais has no plans to perform a “shtick” or dance routine as host, since he’s admittedly “better in small doses.”

He’ll also avoid cheesy jokes and go straight for jabs.

He wants to “gently rip” into his fellow actors on stage, specifically “anyone who’s younger, thinner, richer, and more attractive” than him.

This means Office actor Rainn Wilson is “safe,” and Steve Carell “is on the cusp.”
