Christopher Titus Featured at SEMA Industry Awards Banquet


Emmy-nominated comedian Christopher Titus will perform throughout the evening of the SEMA Industry Awards Banquet on Thursday, November 1.  

The lineup of performances and attractions have been announced for the SEMA Industry Awards Banquet—an annual celebration of the specialty-equipment industry that also provides the backdrop for the presentation of SEMA’s Industry Awards.

The evening begins with an extended outdoor cocktail party that runs from 6:00 p.m.–7:30 p.m. and will feature musician and 2010 “America’s Got Talent” winner Michael Grimm. The cocktail party will take place outdoors on the LVH Patio.

Moving indoors at 7:30 p.m., the party continues with comedian Christopher Titus performing throughout the evening. Titus, who currently has three one-hour specials running on Comedy Central, starred in a self-titled sitcom on Fox called “Titus.” The show earned Titus a Writer’s Guild nomination as well as an Emmy nomination.

The banquet program continues with dinner and presentation of the SEMA Industry Awards, which feature the SEMA Person of the Year, WD of the Year and Rep Agency of the Year. The Association will also present the first-ever SEMA Gen-3 Innovator Award during the event to recognize the accomplishments of a young industry professional. In addition to the awards, the 2012 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees—Nick Arias Jr., Bill France Sr., Mark Heffington and Bob Larivee Sr.—will be recognized and honored during the event.

After the meal, the industry honors and the entertainment, the evening continues with the After Party, featuring additional performances by Michael Grimm. The After Party will run from 10:00 p.m.–11:30 p.m. in the Paradise Event Center of the LVH.
