Is it just me or is Ricky Gervais one of the funniest people on the planet? Did you see his opening monologue last night at the Golden Globes? No? Well, then here:
I’m no fan of award shows (it’s nothing personal, Golden Globes—I don’t like any of them, they’re just not that interesting) but we’d heard Ricky had been a bit controversial last year as host, and so naturally we were itching to see him in action, so Steve looked it up online last night as the show was on. And I have to say that we were richly rewarded for our efforts.
You know what I think I love most? (Other than his biting humor, of course.) The nervous laughter and sometimes uncomfortable smiles of the audience. That just makes it funnier somehow.
Speaking of last year’s Golden Globes, Ricky went on Conan afterwards and told him about a joke he was not allowed to tell. Oh, it’s very bad, incredibly inappropriate, and unbelievably offensive.
Seriously. I think I love him.
Hope your week is starting off with lots of laughs!
