Neil Patrick Harris Slated to Host the Tony Awards for the Fourth Fabulous Time

Neil Patrick Harris

Actor, singer, dancer, and all-around awesome dude Neil Patrick Harris is set to host this year’s Tony Awards for the fourth time, having previously helmed the show in 2009, 2011 and 2012.

“I’m very excited to be back hosting the Tony Awards at the legendary Radio City Music Hall. It’ll be more impressive than ever — if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” NPH joked.

“Oh, wait.  No, that can’t … hold on … carry the one … I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”

Trust us, it will. Harris hasn’t earned two Emmys for hosting the show for no reason.

Added CBS of its obviously superior choice, “Neil is a multi-talented performer whose showmanship, wit and energy command the stage of live events. He is a master of ceremony who truly loves celebrating the performing arts with the highest level of entertainment, and it’s quite obvious to the audience he’s having a lot of fun along the way.”

Other famous names on hand for the June 9 award show include Tom Hanks, who’s up for Best Actor, and Cyndi Lauper, whose play ‘Kinky Boots’ scored 13 nominations.
