The awards, held Feb. 1 simultaneously at the Edison Ballroom in New York City and the JW Marriott L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, CA, honor "outstanding writing in film, television, new media, videogames, news, radio, promotional, and graphic animation categories."
Quinn takes over NYC hosting duties from W. Kamau Bell, who withdrew due to unforeseen conflicts.
Deadline.com quotes Quinn as saying, "I'm proud to be hosting the award show for the only people in the business that are as bitter as comedians."
Quinn, a Drama Desk nominee, is currently touring his one-man show Colin Quinn Unconstitutional, which addresses 226 years of American Constitutional calamities in 70 minutes. The production played an extended run at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York.
