Live from the Beverly Hilton hotel on Sunday, January 5, the After Life comedian had the A-listers in the audience recoiling in horror at his raunchy jokes.
“Remember they’re just jokes. We’re all going to die soon and there is no sequel,” he warned Hollywood’s biggest stars as he opened the show for his fifth time.
Gervais ripped into the movie Cats, telling a dirty joke about Dame Judi Dench, saying she was perfect for the role “Because she loves nothing better than plunking herself down on the carpet, lifting her leg and licking her own ***.” NBC bleeped out his words while Gwyneth Paltrow burst into laughter in the audience.
He also told a joke that didn’t go over so well with the audience. “I came here in a limo tonight and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he said and received groans from the audience. “So, no shush. It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to her. And her dad was in Wild Hogs.”
