Join us in celebrating Bob Odenkirk as Hasty Pudding Theatricals' 56th Man of the Year and for a preview of HPT 174: Cosmic Relief!
The suggested attire for this event is cocktail.
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals announces Emmy Award-winning writer, producer, actor, and New York Times bestselling author BOB ODENKIRK as the recipient of its 2023 Man of the Year Award. The Pudding is thrilled to present this honor to a 5-time Primetime Emmy nominee for Best Actor in a Drama Series and, most recently, the winner of the 2023 Critics Choice for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his leading role in Better Call Saul. From his performances in Breaking Bad and Nobody to his comedic brilliance with Mr. Show with Bob and David, Mr. Odenkirk has truly made an indelible mark on the world as an actor, comedian, and filmmaker.
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Man and Woman of the Year Awards are presented annually to performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment. The Man of the Year award was established in 1967, with past recipients including Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds, and last year’s recipient Jason Bateman, the 55th Man of the Year.
The Man of the Year festivities will take place on Thursday, February 2nd, 2023. The Hasty Pudding Theatricals will host a celebratory roast for Mr. Odenkirk at 6:00pm and present him with his Pudding Pot at Farkas Hall, the Pudding’s historic home in the heart of Harvard Square since 1888. A press conference will follow the roast at 6:20pm. Afterwards, Mr. Odenkirk will attend a preview of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ 174th production Cosmic Relief.
“When choosing our 2023 Man of the Year, I immediately knew we better call Bob Odenkirk,” said Producer Aidan Golub. “We’re cooking up a lot of surprises to celebrate Mr. Odenkirk’s contributions to the world of comedy both in front of and behind the camera.”
“When I heard that Bob Odenkirk would be Man of the Year, I thought, ‘Lucky Hank? More like lucky us!’ It’s funny, get it? Because Bob Odenkirk will be our Man of the Year. Wait, this isn’t actually going in the press release, right?” said President Lyndsey Mugford.
