Comedienne/Actress Kate Quigley Named 2016 AVN Awards Show Co-Host

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Comedienne and actress Kate Quigley has been named the comedic co-host for the 2016 AVN Awards presented by Chaturbate, the annual adult industry show produced by AVN Media Network. This much anticipated yearly extravaganza will be held at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, January 23, 2016.

"I'm so excited to be hosting the 2016 AVN Awards with the lovely Joanna Angel & Anikka Albrite,” says Quigley. “Mostly because I know my Mom will have to explain what the show is about to all the ladies in her quilting club."

Quigley will bring that sly wit and sense of irreverence to the AVN Awards. Known as a standup comedian, host and actress, Kate is clearly a star on the rise. She is the up-for-anything host of Undercover on Playboy TV, and her other TV credits include The Office, The Josh Wolf Show, The Danny Comden Project, The Megan Mullally Show and Talkshow with Spike Feresten. Quigley also hosts THE Hollywood Pool Party on Periscope.TV, which gets more than 20,000 views per episode, and her popular podcast, #DateFails on the SideShowNetwork, is at more than 30,000 downloads per episode. Kate recently began touring as a headlining comedian and can be seen regularly in Los Angeles at The Improv, Laugh Factory, and Icehouse. She also just returned from an Armed Forces Tour where she performed for our troops in Japan, Singapore, Guam and Diego Garcia. 

“Kate Quigley is smart, funny and a little outrageous.  Thus, she’s the perfect addition to the 2016 AVN Awards show, and we’re very excited to have her,” said Beth Noonan of AVN Media Network. “I know Kate will keep the crowd laughing all night and make this show what we want it to be—the biggest and wildest party of the year!” 

Quigley joins a comedic A-list of past AVN Awards hosts that includes Lisa Lampanelli, Dave Attell, Jim Norton, Rebekah Kochan, April Macie, Thea Vidale and the late great Robert Schimmel.

Adult superstars Joanna Angel and Anikka Albrite will co-host the AVN Awards with Quigley. 

The 2016 AVN Awards Show will be held Saturday, January 23, 2016 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. Known as "the Oscars of porn,” the annual AVN Awards Show is the premier gala of adult video and recognizes titles, individuals, and companies for contributions to and excellence in the industry.  Official AVN Awards site: AVNAwards.AVN.com.
