Blizzard has made it official, announcing today that Jay Mohr will return as the host of this year’s BlizzCon. Here’s the official word:
Comedian and actor Jay Mohr will be returning to BlizzCon this year to serve as master of ceremonies for the live costume contest and other contests on the first night of the show. Jay is the star of the popular television show Gary Unmarried, and is known for his roles in movies like Jerry Maguire and for creating, producing, and hosting the successful TV series Last Comic Standing. We’ll have more info to share about the Friday-night contests and other events at BlizzCon in the months leading up to the show, so keep your eye on BlizzCon.com for more details.
Of course Jay made this announcement himself a few months ago, in a posted, then quickly-deleted Tweet. But let us never speak of that again!
You can check out Jay in action over on IncGamers TV where there’s a ton of footage from all the previous BlizzCons.
