Host announced!

Comedian Rob Beckett will host this year's MCV Awards. The 8 Out of 10 Cats team captain, plus regular guest on Mock the Week, Taskmaster, Live at the Apollo, has also appeared in sitcom Fresh Meat, Drunk Histories and co-hosted I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Rob Beckett has come to standup from the event industry, and according to one Times critic
‘he already has the confidence of a veteran.’ With south London cheek and man-of-the-people charm, Rob takes a look at the absurdities of the world, the quirks of his family life, the strangeness of the middle classes, and why silly pranks are brilliant.

After storming the So You Think You’re Funny? competition Rob was immediately invited to
perform at the Adelaide Festival. He’s since toured with Russell Kane and Stephen K Amos
before embarking on his own sell-out UK tours. He’s graduated from regular guest to team
captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and has appeared on Mock the Week, Taskmaster, Live at the
Apollo, and student sitcom Fresh Meat. He co-hosted I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!
Now! for ITV2, is a regular on Comedy Central’s hit Drunk Histories, and has even delivered
his opinions on late-night political show This Week.
