Comedian Cedric the Entertainer has been tapped to host the 73rd Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on 19 September.

The live ceremony will be held in-person at the Microsoft Theater with a limited audience of nominees and their guests.

Announcing the hosting gig with a statement on Monday, Cedric said: "Since I was a little boy huddled up next to my grandmother, television has always been my reliable friend, so it is an enormous honor for me to host this year's Emmy Awards.

"Throughout the roller-coaster of a year that we have all lived through, television has helped us stay connected as a society like never before. It not only entertained us, but as it always has, it helped to open our eyes, educate us, and hopefully brought about a better understanding of who we are as a people.

"I can't wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year."
