Ricky Gervais is planning to provide a three-hour live podcast, commenting on the Golden Globes.
The comic, who caused a media storm earlier this year when he jokingly insulted Hollywood bigwigs while hosting the awards, says he could provide alternative, uncensored comments to the next ceremony.
He wrote: ‘People at home can have the telly on with the sound down listening to us online say things that no broadcaster could get away with. No one could do a fucking thing.
‘The biggest live webcast ever? Who knows? Who cares? What's fun is the shit we might come out with. No money. No sponsor. No guidelines. Fuck me I can't wait.
Later he said he had an ‘amazing response’ to his idea with ‘offers of sponsorship, technical support and a bunch of comedians up for it’.
He added: ‘I don't want people to think that this is some sort of anti-establishment stunt. It's not. Any more than deciding to do a podcast in 2005 was. It's about new horizons, new technologies and artistic freedom.
‘If I actually do it, it will show people how tame my official hosting was last year. I still can't quite understand how anyone would think I overstepped the mark, was cruel, or pushed any boundaries of taste and decency. It was a network friendly gentle ribbing of the industry.
‘Anyway. I'm looking into it. Might not happen. I might not even be available. Who knows, I might be at The Golden Globes (awkward silence).’
