Joel McHale Is Hosting The Webbys

Hey Internet, your fav pop culture savant is back: Joel McHale is hosting The Webbys this year.

We’re thrilled to announce that Joel McHale is hosting the 21st Annual Webby Awards!

And wow, he has quite the resume. For over a decade(!) McHale hosted The Soup, where he broke down what we watched, what crazy stuff celebrities were up to, and much more with his trademark wit. We loved him in the hit comedy series Community and we’re stoked about his latest show, The Great Indoors. Get acquainted below, and make sure you watch the full star-studded Webby Awards on webbyawards.com on Tues., May 16th.

Joel McHale in a Nutshell

Hey Internet, your fav pop culture savant is back: Joel McHale is hosting The Webbys this year.

1. He literally wrote the book on becoming a celebrity in the digital age

As it says on his website: Joel McHale’s THANKS FOR THE MONEY is one part memoir, one part self-help guide, and (mostly) all book!

2. Smell that? It's "The Great Indoors"

On the The Great Indoors Joel plays a real-deal outdoorsy guy who must learn the techy ways of millennials. It’s a struggle.

3. This ain't his first rodeo

You know you’ve made it as a comic when you get invited to perform in front of and make fun of the President. Watch these highlights from when Joel hosted the 2014 White House Correspondent’s Dinner.



4. The Soup... yum

A beacon of cultural literacy, Joel walked us through the weirdest and most viral television moments for over 10 years.

5. He cooks a mean steak

Joel understands the “finer things.”

Watch the star-studded 21st Annual Webbys on webbyawards.com on Tues., May 16th, for Joel McHale’s monologue, celebrity appearances, epic 5-Word Speeches, and more!
