Cinema Audio Society Taps Michael Kosta as Host for 54th CAS Awards


“Having seen Michael on The Daily Show I am definitely a fan,” said CAS Awards Committee Chairperson Bob Bronow. “I am very much looking forward to him bringing his quick wit and humor to our CAS Awards,”

 Michael Kosta is a stand-up comedian who recently made his debut as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Kosta is no stranger to the world of talk shows. He was host and co-executive producer of The Comment Section for The Kardashian Network (formerly E!) and co-host on Fox Sports 1’s, Crowd Goes Wild. Kosta started out as an athlete; he is quick to point out that he was once-ranked number 864 in the world in professional tennis and earned over $11,000 on tour.  Don’t laugh, that’s $11,000 more than you made as a pro athlete.

 Kosta gained attention as a comedian when he broke out of the HBO Comedy and Arts Festival in Aspen.  He quickly relocated to Los Angeles where he began his television career; he made regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & Chelsea Lately before both those hosts drowned in their money and ended their shows. He also starred in his own comedy special, Comedy Central Presents: Michael Kosta.  As a host, Michael acted as a know-it-all correspondent for E!’s spinoff of The Soup, entitled The Soup Investigates.Michael can also be seen on Comedy Central’s Snapchat series, Worst Birthday, which is based on his successful podcast.  He also is the star and creator of the web series Sports.
