The comedian credited with creating the brilliant Office series may be airlifted back to his hometown of Slough, England next week to be with his 90-year-old mother.
Gervais fans noticed something was wrong with the comedian last week at a Hollywood awards ceremony.
“He came on to speak but he just couldn’t get the words out. His face contorted and he started spazzing out with a mong face. You know when you stick your tongue out the other side of your mouth and start making retarded noises,” one of the audience members recalled.
One thing’s for sure, the Golden Globe awards luvvies will all breathe a sigh of relief at being spared another dose of British humour next year.
“I’m certainly glad that bad British guy is outta here. I never liked him and after what he said about me that time, I’ll never forgive him,” actor Tom Cruise said from his Beverly Hills mansion’s closet.
