Emmys: Meet the Show's Announcer, Jermaine Fowler

"What most awards show do is have the announcer locked in a closet reading from a script on cue", Sussman told Deadline of Fowler. Comedian and actor Jermaine Fowler's hilarious off-the-cuff commentary while announcing set a different tone at the Emmys. He will be connected with what's happened on the telecast and what happens next.

So, yeah, when you heard the voiceover announcer losing his proverbial mind when Insecure star Issa Rae took to the stage to co-present an award with Riz Ahmed, that was totally okay. And while he will follow a script, there will be room for some ad-libbing.

Most awards show announcers are rarely on camera but Fowler is appearing onstage and on camera throughout the show Sunday night.

Known for starring in CBS' comedy Superior Donuts, Fowler is no stranger to lending his voice to television work. The Eye is using the fact that it has the Emmys this year to promote one of its shows. Previous examples include Oscar announcer Peter Coyote.

The 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards tried something new this year by replacing the usually stuffy announcer with a DJ - and that DJ is actor and comic Jermaine Fowler, who now stars on CBS comedy Superior Donuts.
