Comedian Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globes for 4th time.

Irreverent British comedian Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes ceremony in 2016 for a fourth time, organisers said on Monday, bringing his biting humour to the glitzy annual movie and television awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

The British star previously hosted the ceremony from 2010-2012 before he was replaced by former “Saturday Night Live” stars Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who fronted the show for two years. Gervais, the creator of mockumentary The Office, hosted the dinner for three consecutive years from 2010-2012, keeping his celebrity targets on edge with a stream of barbed comments. Ricky, 54, upset many Hollywood A-listers with his pointed barbs during his first stint as presenter, but his comedic comments hit the headlines and drew big audiences for the telecast, and the star previously admitted that he liked being the man in the hot seat. “Ricky Gervais left us with a lasting impression and we are thrilled to have him back in our show as we honour the best in film and television,” Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Lorenzo Soria told Deadline. “His off-the-cuff wit and quirky charm will surely have the room and audiences around the world at the edge of their seats.” Gervais has yet to comment on the announcement but he did retweet a picture of a cartoon silhouette of himself with the words ‘He’s back!’ across the front.

He also created the comedy series “Extras” and “Life’s Too Short” as well as appearing in movies including “Night at the Museum,” “The Invention of Lying” and “Muppets Most Wanted.”
