Best known for starring in shows such as ‘How to Start Your Own Country’ and ‘Awkward Situations for Men’, Danny is also a highly regarded writer, having written for both ‘Dead Ringers’ and ‘The Mighty Boosh’.

The CEDIA Awards is in its tenth year, with the show expecting over 400 guests, surpassing last year’s record of 350.

Speaking of Danny Wallace’s appointment as host for the CEDIA Awards 2015, Wendy Griffiths, executive director of CEDIA EMEA, says: “It is with great pleasure that we announce Danny Wallace as the host for this year’s CEDIA Awards ceremony.

“A natural presenter and comedian, Danny is sure to make the awards a lively night of humour and great entertainment.  With a show-stopping venue, a strong set of finalist entries and now with Danny Wallace confirmed as our host, it is without a doubt that this year’s awards will be a night to remember!”
