LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- British comedian Ricky Gervais says he wishes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler luck as they take over as co-hosts of the 2013 Golden Globes ceremony.

Gervais served as emcee of the Hollywood prize presentation for the past three years.

"Good luck to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes. After failing three years in a row to make E! Channel's Best Dressed list, I decided to hand over the reins," Gervais said in an exclusive statement to EW.com. "Let me know if you run out of Scientology gags."

The 70th Golden Globe Awards show, honoring the best in film and television for 2012, is to air live on NBC Jan. 13.
