Comedian and actor Maz Jobrani is officially ON FIRE! On the heels of his well-received Netflix premiere (‘Immigrant’), The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced that Jobrani will host the International Emmy Awards Gala.
“Maz Jobrani has been entertaining American and international audiences by using comedy to address prejudice and stereotypes around the world,” said Bruce L. Paisner, President & CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in making the host announcement. “We look forward to having his unique brand of humor headlining our awards on November 20.”
Jobrani responded to the honor with his trademark humor, “I’m super excited to host the International Emmys. Although given our new immigration laws I’m not sure how many nominees will actually make it.”
