CEDIA has unveiled Danny Wallace as the host of the association’s 10th annual awards ceremony, taking place at the Natural History Museum in London on Friday 3rd July.
A modern Renaissance man, Danny is a highly regarded author, actor, columnist, screenwriter and radio and TV presenter. Starting out as a writer on Dead Ringers and The Mighty Boosh, Danny has become a prolific writer of both comedic and conventional novels, including his first solo book, Join Me, and his second book, Yes Man.
