John Oliver Is Back To Host The Crunchies, Here Are Last Year’s Highlights

“Tonight is about something different,” John Oliver said, opening last year’s Crunchies. “It’s about giving nerds the opportunity to do what nerds do best: Sit back and judge each other.”

We’re proud to have John Oliver host the Crunchies for the second time. Last year he talked t-shirt cannons, slashfics, and the self-absorbed tech scene we live and breathe. The highlights are below. Obviously he will have plenty of new material for this year’s hosting gig. Silicon Valley was a tad busy last year.

“I have almost no apps.” Oliver confessed last year. “I have so few apps that my wife’s niece laughed at me the other day. She laughed at me and then she was sad.”

Still, even sans apps, John Oliver is a perfect fit to host our little award show. The highlights from last year are below.

In a few short days John Oliver will take the stage at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco and play host to The 7th Annual Crunchies Awards where TechCrunch, along with VentureBeat and Gigaom, will honor the best achievements, apps, founders, and startups of 2013.

We invite all of you to come out on February 10 to participate in what is one of the most exciting nights for all of us here at TechCrunch and the tech community. Tickets start at $80 and are available below.
