Roy Wood Jr. is back to host the Internet’s biggest night! In an exclusive with the Hollywood Reporter, it was announced that the talented comedian, producer, and podcaster will take the Webby stage once again, following his phenomenal performance during last year’s show. Doing what he does best, Wood entertained viewers with his signature wit and humor. From delivering his monologue with charisma to hilariously introducing Big Bird and closing the night with an unforgettable song, Wood made last year’s show the best yet.
Known for his segments in “The Daily Show,” and his iconic set “Imperfect Messenger,” Wood’s keen eye for humor is evident. He’s even taken his talents to audio, heard in his podcasts “Roy Job’s Fair” and “Beyond the Scenes” with Comedy Central. Starring in the film Confess, Fletch is another project under his belt, along with serving as a producer for “Only Murders in the Building,” “Better Call Saul,” “Space Force,” “The Last O.G.,” and the documentary “The Neutral Ground”—which snagged him an Emmy nomination for his role as executive producer. From his first Comedy Central specials, “Father Figure” and “No One Loves You,” it was evident that Wood is a force in comedy, as the latter still stands as the network’s highest-rated original.
Check out a special message from Roy, along with a few moments from last yea’s show and what he’s been up to since.
