British comedian Nish Kumar to host 2020 Rose d'Or Awards

Europe’s premier TV and audio entertainment awards are delighted to announce that British comedy star, Nish Kumar, will host the annual Rose d’Or Awards, which will be a digital-only event this year.

Nish has developed a successful TV comedy career on both sides of the Atlantic, currently hosting topical comedy for the BBC with the Mash Report and Hello America on the Quibi platform. 

He started his career in stand-up comedy with five rave reviewed solo stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, nominated for the prestigious Comedy Award for Best Show in both 2015 and 2016.

Nish said: “I am deeply honoured to present the 59th Rose D’Or Awards and I’m especially excited to be doing it in this of all years, meaning I get to realize my dream of presenting awards with a tux on my top half and just pants on the bottom!”

There are just two weeks to go before entries close on 1 October. Find out more and enter online.

The Rose d’Or Awards Ceremony will be streamed on 9 December on and across social media. 

The Rose d'Or is owned and operated by C21Media Enterprises in association with the EBU.
