Good Idea or Best Idea? Ricky Gervais Wants to Live-Snark the Golden Globes

rickygervaispodcast300.jpgOver at his blog, Ricky Gervais has an idea. Possibly the best idea to ever hit the awards season circuit. "A live 3 hour podcast during the Golden Globes. Me and a few chums (like Louis C.K., Chris Rock, Karl Pilkington, John [sic] Stewart, Larry David popping in and out) doing our own alternative commentary... People at home can have the telly on with the sound down listening to us online say things that no broadcaster can get away with." Like, say, eviscerating Hollywood's brightest and shiniest on the big day like it was a Comedy Central roast? Make it so, Ricky!

A refresher of Gervais's Golden Globes hosting job earlier this year:

    That would be so amazing that I couldn't even describe how amazing it would be.

  • The WInchester says:

    Why stop at the Globes? Why not the Oscars, too?
    This is the greatest idea since they decided to make a Piranha 3D sequel.

  • Kitty says:

    I would pay money to hear that podcast.

  • matt says:

    ad jerry seinfeld and steven colbert and you might break some records

  • Scott Lyman says:

    Definitely the Oscars, but I'd still pay for the GGs

  • FHIM says:

    So this is what high school bullies do when they grow up? I know what would be even funnier.. send out letters to random people calling them names. He is sooo funny! (sarcasm) What an ass. So his jokes are, you'r old, you'r gay, you'r fat, etc.. my 10 year old nephew does these jokes better.
