Yesterday BET announced that funny man-turned-born-again-Chrisitan, Chris Tucker would be the host for the network’s 2013 BET Awards show, reports The Los Angeles Times.

The live show is set air June 30th in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater and the Silver Linings Playbook actor seems to be very excited about his upcoming gig!

“I am honored to be asked to host this year’s BET Awards. I’m looking forward to be being part of a really great show,” Tucker said in a statement issued by the network.

BET executives appear to be equally excited about having Chris host their annual awards show.

“We cannot wait for Chris to set fire to the BET Awards stage with his unique brand of mayhem,” said Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials.

It’s great to see Chris Tucker back on the scene these days. His disappearances from the public eye often stir up many outrageous rumors and at one point, even trigged a death hoax, which Tucker poked fun of during a recent interview with Indy Week.

“I do remember that, man. That was crazy because that’s when the Internet was just starting, I guess,” he told the site.

He even lightheartedly joked about the hoax during one of his stand-up acts.

“I was kind of happy because people stopped asking me for money. They were still calling me—’Hey, man, can I borrow five dollars?’ … ‘Didn’t you hear I was dead? Stop calling me!” the comedian joked during one of his standup acts.

We look forward to seeing him back in action. There’s no doubt that he will be acting a complete fool at the awards show.

What do you think of Chris Tucker hosting this year’s BET Awards?

    I do not watch BET awards. I had a free ticket to the live taping. I went and watch it and still had no desire to watch it on TV. But if Chris is hosting, you best believe i’m watching!
