Rhys Nicholson.

Australian comedian Rhys Nicholson will host the 28th annual West Australian Screen Awards (WASAs).

.Oh I can.t wait for the awards", Nicholson said. "Who doesn.t love awards? Losers I guess. I.m just so glad Joel Creasey was booked so I could host!.

After winning Best Newcomer at Sydney Comedy Festival in 2012, Nicholson has performed around the world, supporting the likes of Louis Ck (Us), Amy Schumer (Us), Kathy Griffin (Us), Fiona O.Loughlin (Aus) and Wil Anderson (Aus)..

.I.m looking forward to some type of Miley Cyrus/Nicki Minaj style feud", Nicholson said. "I won.t be satisfied until a key grip punches out a Dop and two nominees are wrestling in the aisles."

The 28th WASAs will be held on June 4 at the Heath Ledger Theatre at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia.

The awards are presented in conjunction with the Revelation »
