The 6th Annual Crunchies Awards will soon be upon us and (if you hadn’t noticed) we just announced our new host. The Daily Show’s John Oliver will take the stage at this year’s Crunchies Awards and we couldn’t be more excited. Not only is he hilarious, but he has been nominated for multiple prestigious awards and won the Emmy Award for Best Comedy Writing in a Comedy or Variety Series in 2009 and 2011. We told you this award show, coined the Oscars of tech, will not disappoint, and we meant it.
We’re incredibly lucky to have John Oliver host, but we also have plenty of surprises up our sleeves — expect to hear more about them in the weeks leading up to the show on January 31st at the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco.
Tickets are already on sale and we are filling up fast. Since we have just released the full list of the finalists nominated, voting has begun. However, since we know not all of you will be able to purchase tickets, we wanted to give our loyal readers a chance to win some. Today, we are giving away two free tickets (valued at $120 each) to the Crunchies Awards — only one reader will win, but they’ll be able to bring a friend, colleague, date, or whomever they choose. The night will be filled with surprises, influential tech gurus, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, giveaways and much more.
