The NAMM Foundation has booked comedian Demetri Martin as host of the 33rd Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards (NAMM TEC Awards), taking place on Saturday January 27th 2018 during The NAMM Show.

Known for his deadpan delivery style, Martin is also an audiophile and multi-instrumentalist who regularly incorporates music into his act. He has played everything from the piano to guitar, harmonica, the ever-popular ukulele, and even the electronic keytar at his shows.

Of the awards, Martin commented: “I am looking forward to hosting the NAMM TEC Awards! As a mediocre, amateur musician who knows very little about professional sound and audio production, I feel uniquely unqualified for the gig – it should be fun.”

As a writer, actor, and director, Martin’s career has included many high-profile appearances and collaborations, including his notable early work as a contributor to The Daily Show and his own TV series for Comedy Central. He can now be heard as the voice of Ice Bear in Cartoon Network’s We Bare Bears and will release his third book recently called If It’s Not Funny It’s Art.

The NAMM TEC Awards honour the individuals, companies and technical innovations used in sound recordings, films, broadcast television and video games. On the evening of the awards, the winners in 31 categories of products and projects in the areas of Technical or Creative Achievement will be announced.
