It marks Corden’s second time running the show, as the “Late Late Show” host previously presided over Broadway’s biggest night back in 2016 for the Tonys’ 70th annual ceremony, which won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Program.
“I’m thrilled to be returning to host the Tony Awards. The Broadway community is very dear to my heart and I’m beyond proud to be part of this incredibly special night,” Corden said in a statement Tuesday.
Corden is a Tony winner in his own right, having brought home the statue for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play for his 2012 performance in “One Man, Two Guvnors.”
