Kemper will host the awards ceremony on Friday, May 13th at Cipriani Wall Street, and Black will host the awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 11th at Gotham Hall.
Kemper is currently starring in Tina Fey and Robert Carlock's half-hour comedy for NBC, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Kemper portrayed 'Erin Hannon' on the last 5 seasons of NBC's series The Office. Kemper first gained attention with her one-woman show, "Feeling Sad/Mad," at the UCB Theater.  She co-starred in Bridesmaids (Universal) and has also appeared in 21 Jump Street (Sony), Identity Thief (Universal) and Somewhere (Focus Features).

Black is a multi-media talent who's starred in numerous films and TV series, written and/or directed two films, is a published author and commentator, and regularly tours the country performing his ribald brand of jokes and observations. He's currently starring in TV Land's "The Gaffigan Show" and Comedy Central's "Another Period," both of which are shooting their second seasons. Last summer, he reprised his iconic film role in the first season of the Netflix series, "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp." This May, his third standup comedy special, "Noted Expert," debuts on Epix. He also recently released his well-reviewed second memoir, "Navel Gazing."

The One Show takes place during Creative Week (May 9-13).
