Ricky Gervais: His best jokes from the Golden Globes

Comic hosted Hollywood ceremony again

Here are some of Ricky Gervais's best lines from last night's Golden Globes monologue.

The routine included quips about paedophile priests, Jeffrey Epstein and the fake sheen of wokeness that covers Hollywood.

He referenced Apple TV’s The Morning Show and its theme of morality, adding that was 'rich coming from a company that runs sweat shops in Asia'.

Stars in the firing line included Leonardo DiCaprio – with Gervais quipping that he attended the premiere of the three-hour-long The Irishman – 'and by the end, his date was too old for him'

And - not included in this clip – he called James Corden a 'fat pussy', a reference to his role in Cats. Honest. 

Every time the audience reacted with a gasp, Gervais said bluntly: 'I don't care'.

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
