Kat B makes his Discover Young Hackney return

1 January 2013

Kat BMTV Base’s very own Kat Boyce is set to host a number of live events with DYH.

After entertaining the crowd at Hackney’s biggest talent show of the year – the Alter Ego finals last February – Kat B is back to represent at the Hackney Empire on Friday 1st February 2013 with more of his unique brand of boisterous banter.

A born performer, Kat B’s inspirational rise to fame came through his ability to make people laugh and have fun with a microphone in his hand. Using media as a platform for his success, he gained a reputation at Choice FM network collaborating with fellow comedian and presenter Richard Blackwood. Now, Kat B is best known for his hosting antics on MTV Base’s Request Show and The Lick Parties with Trevor Nelson.

He’s done everything, from stacking shelves at Tesco to interviewing J-Lo. Do you dream of being a presenter? Choreographer? Dancer? Actor? Stand-up comedian? Kat B has done it all, which makes him the perfect host for this year’s Alter Ego competition.

With a passion for pleasing the crowd, or as MTV describes him, a “party on legs!”, Kat B has used his talents to work himself out of a situation where he says he could easily have ended up in prison, to become who he is today, and DHY can’t wait to find out more. Watch this space for an exclusive interview with Kat as we talk to the star about his past and why he’s getting involved with DHY now.
