A Special Message from Roy Wood Jr.
Host of the 26th Annual Webby Awards, in New York City
As a comedian, radio personality, actor, producer, podcaster, and writer Wood has entertained millions across stage, television, and radio since beginning his comedy career in 1998. In 2015, he joined Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah‘s” Best F#@ing News Team as a correspondent. Beyond this, the comedian and actor has extended his talents to host two Comedy Central podcasts: “Roy’s Roy’s Job Fair“ and “Beyond the Scenes“–as well as his third hour-long stand-up special, “Imperfect Messenger,” available to stream now on Paramount+.
Even more, Wood’s work always lands with audiences. From his previous stand-up specials like “Father Figure” and “No One Loves You,” which remains the network’s highest-rated original, to his credits on “Only Murders in the Building,” “Better Call Saul,” “Space Force The Last O.G.,” and the PBS documentary “The Neutral Ground.” Entertainment Weekly has described his thought-provoking comedy as “charismatic crankiness,” Forbes declared him “one of comedy’s best journalists,” and Variety named him “One of 10 Comics to Watch” in 2016.
