Gervais: I’d Rather Drink with Mel Gibson in a Hotel Room than with Bill Cosby

‘I want to say something nice about Mel before he comes out’

GERVAIS: "A few years ago on this show, I made a joke about Mel Gibson getting a bit drunk and saying a few unsavory things. We have all done it. I wasn't judging him. But now I find myself in the awkward position of having to introduce him again. Listen, I'm sure it's embarrassing for both of us, okay? And I blame NBC for this terrible situation. Mel blames -- we know who Mel blames. Listen, I still feel a bit bad for it, right? Mel's forgotten all about it, apparently. That's what drinking does. I want to say something nice about Mel before he comes out. Um, so, oh, yeah, okay. Here you go. I'd rather have a drink with him in his hotel room tonight than Bill Cosby. Please welcome Mel Gibson!"
GIBSON: "Yeah. I love seeing Ricky once every three years 'cause it reminds me to get a colonoscopy. Well, if you'd left your drink -- you don't need to leave your drink here, I will put to you sleep another way, son of a bitch."
