We are thrilled that writer and comedian Amber Ruffin is our host for the 22nd Annual Webby Awards!
Not only has Amber been killing it on the comedy scene for years, she’s also a trailblazer. She became the first black woman to write for a late-night talk show in the United States when she joined Late Night with Seth Meyers—where she’s known for her hilarious “Amber Says What” sketches, and much more.
Amber also writes on Comedy Central’s Detroiters and is a regular narrator on Drunk History. (And tell your musical theater friends: She’s working on a new version of the Broadway show The Wiz, premiering this summer at The MUNY in St. Louis.)
In short? Amber is busy. And awesome. And we can’t wait to have her host the 22nd Annual Webby Awards on May 14th in NYC.
The full show will be available to watch on YouTube the next morning. In the meantime, catch up some of these great Amber moments below:
