The comedian, 54, took to Instagram on Sunday to show off his pre-Golden Globes look in a hilarious Instagram selfie.
“Better get dressed and offend some humourless c—- I suppose. #GoldenGlobes,” he captioned the picture of himself pulling a face and crossing his eyes.
Gervais is set to host the 73rd annual Golden Globes on Sunday, which will be presented live from Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
And this isn’t the first time Gervais promised to bring some “offensive” zingers to the award show: In a video clip exclusive to PEOPLE, the actor admitted he often thinks his jokes could either “offend everyone in the world” or, “they might like it.”
In the two hours since he posted the messy selfie, Gervais has cleaned up and shared another picture of himself on his way to the Globes, his look complete with dark sunglasses.

But what’s he most looking forward to Sunday evening?
“Every time I do something like this I’m looking forward to it being over,” Gervais joked to Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. “I’m not cut out for this.”
And as promised, he’s also got some liquid courage in him: His longtime girlfriend Jane Fallon revealed Gervais drinks “before, during and after” events like this while he doubled over with laughter.
