(Newser) – If you were hoping to see who Ricky Gervais would skewer at next year's Golden Globes, sorry: The comic says that while he "had a blast" hosting Sunday's award show, he has directed his agent never to let him do it again. "It's like a parachute jump," he writes on his blog. "You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realize you didn't die and it was quite an amazing thing to do."

But he says this year was his favorite of the three times he's hosted, and that the audience was great. "I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all," he writes. "Or they were just drunker." The Telegraph notes that Gervais was criticized this year for not being all that funny. Click for some of his better lines from the evening.

Listen to the fucking whining bedwetters here who'd most likely prefer James Franco.

Who on Earth is that guy anyway? I found him annoying at best, an a--hole at worst.

For someone as chubby as him, with teeth that look like they were straightened with a 2x4, he has a lot of nerve poking his brand of humor at anybody. Good Bye you over glorified excuse for humor.
