LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- British comedian Ricky Gervais is vowing Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be his last as host.

The creator and star of "The Office" and "Extras" presided over the TV and film prize presentation for the past three years.

"Phew! Thank [expletive] that's over. I had a blast, actually," Gervais wrote on his blog after this year's edition of the Globes. "It was by far my favorite of the three hosting stints. I've told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again, though. It's like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realize you didn't die and it was quite an amazing thing to do. The crowd were great this year, too. I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all. Or they were just drunker. Either way, it was fun but I'm glad to say I'm off to New York to chill out a bit. Ahhhhhh. And relax."
