Don’t count on seeing Ricky Gervais hosting next year’s Golden Globes. The controversial comedian wrote on his website, “Phew! Thank f*ck that’s over. I had a blast actually. It was by far my favorite of the three hosting stints. I’ve told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again, though.”

Gervais compared the experience to a parachute jump, explaining, “You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realize you didn’t die and it was quite an amazing thing to do.”

Although Ricky Gervais’ jokes from previous Golden Globes ceremonies were widely criticized for being too harsh, he thinks things went far better this year. “I think [the crowd] finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all,” he said. “Or they were just drunker.”
