The king of comedy and performance, Neil Patrick Harris, will be hosting the Tony Awards! After hosting both the Emmys and the TV Land Awards, Harris feels comfortable as the star of the show.
“Hosting an awards show is not something you go to school for…it’s just these weird baby steps,” Harris told CBS. “I love doing it. I love game nights at my house. I do the same thing that I do here…’alright everybody, the next game is this…here’s the rules…”
Seen here, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka Tony Eve Cocktail party presenting the 2011 Tony Honors, held at the InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel in New York City on June 11th. Neil and David are such a good looking couple, not to mention fantastic at dressing! Their family is absolutely adorable.
The big nominees for this year’s Tony Awards are “Catch Me If You Can”, “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying”, “Sister Act” and the fabulous hit “The Book Of Mormon”. Neil says they have a lot of great material for the awards show.
“I have 11 hours of ‘Spiderman’ material and were only a three-hour show. So what’s gonna happen? I have to be nice to Bono, he’s presenting… I have to be super nice, super pro-’Spiderman,’ which I am anyway,” Harris said.
