MUMBAI: The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has got comedian/writer John Oliver on board to host the 41st International Emmy Awards Gala, on 25 November at the Hilton New York Hotel.

The man who made his mark as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and sat in for him in the hosting chair over the summer, will host the event for the first time.

“We’re delighted to have John Oliver and his unique comedic talent headlining our Gala this year,” said International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences president and CEO Bruce L. Paisner. “We are delighted John is following up his very successful hosting of the Daily Show with the International Emmys.”

After being a writer and correspondent for the Daily Show with Jon Stewart since 2006, Oliver filled in Stewart’s seat as guest host this summer for two months. Oliver has been nominated as a writer for both Emmys and Writers Guild Awards and has won the Breakout Award at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. His most recent credits also include hosting four seasons of his own stand up series for Comedy Central, John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show. Along with Andy Zaltzman, he also writes and hosts the weekly podcast The Bugle.

Over 1,000 international media and entertainment executives convene on New York each year for the International Emmy Awards Gala. In addition to the presentation of Emmy Awards for programming, the Academy will present two special awards.

Film and television creator/writer/director J.J. Abrams will come to New York to receive the 2013 International Emmy Founders Award. RTL Group Co-CEO and RTL CEO Germany Anke Schäferkordt will receive the 2013 International Emmy Directorate Award.

This year’s Gala partners are: Phoenix Satellite Television, TV Globo, Microsoft, Dori Media Group, Ernst & Young, Deluxe, Mipcom, Sofitel Luxury Hotels and Variety.
