Interviewer’s Wholesome Ad-Libs Win Over Everyone At The Webby Awards

A two-photo collage. The first shows a man talking into a megaphone while wearing a suit. The second image shows two well-dressed women on a red carpet. Both look happily surprised, open-mouthed smiles on their faces. One of them is seemingly recording someone on their phone.

If there’s one thing we know about Benedict Polizzi, it’s that he’s a master at dishing out compliments with a dash of humor. In fact, this wholesome skill is part of the reason this comedian has become so popular on social media. Here, you’ll find Benedict sharing all sorts of fun content. It’s no wonder, then, that he was invited to interview folks on the red carpet of the Webby Awards! This award show has been around for 28 years now and celebrates the best the Internet has to offer, from film and video to social media and podcasts.

As a result, this was the perfect place for Benedict to draw inspiration from a popular series of his — “polite catcalling.” Rather than saying things that will make a stranger uncomfortable, he subverts expectations by giving out delightful, and often funny, compliments that leave folks smiling. But instead of strangers, Benedict had the chance to give compliments to guests on the red carpet! See how it turned out in the video below.

Based on how everyone reacted, it’s clear that Benedict’s unexpected presence was a delight! He never fails to find the best way to compliment them, all with humor that isn’t meant to tear anyone down. We love to see it!

As silly as these compliments may seem, it’s clear that they genuinely meant the world to the folks in the video above. That’s because, oftentimes, it’s the little things that make the biggest impact.

“Please more of [this] series,” one fan writes in the comments. “I love watching this so much.”

“Going to need this as a continuing red carpet series,” someone else adds. “Love how you get such a sweet side out of everyone.”
