John Oliver To Host The Crunchies

We’re excited to announce the return of John Oliver, former Daily Show correspondent and current bon vivant, at our annual Crunchies event in San Francisco on February 10, 2014. That’s right: Oliver will be back to give the Valley the loving drubbing it deserves.

Watch the best bits from last year’s show right here.

John Oliver has been a writer and correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart since 2006. And, for two months this summer he hosted The Daily Show while Jon Stewart was busy directing a feature film called Rosewater. John recently left The Daily Show and is back on NBC’s Community. And, in addition to Community, in 2014 he’ll be launching a brand new Sunday night comedy series with HBO. He’s also had multiple Writers Guild and Emmy Nominations for his writing on The Daily Show and won the Emmy Award for Best Comedy Writing In A Comedy or Variety Series in both 2009 and 2011.

 The 2013 Crunchies will be our seventh annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year. They will be co-hosted by GigaomVentureBeat, and TechCrunch. Best of all, the internet community is invited to choose who wins.

We invite all of you to come out on February 10 to participate in what’s one of the most exciting nights for all of us here at TechCrunch and for the tech community. You can get your tickets below and remember, you have until Sunday, January 26, 2014, at 11:59 p.m. PST to vote for your favorite startup.

Winners will be announced on Monday, February 10, 2014, at the 7th Annual Crunchies. See you there!
