    Default MC

    A. Is MC the abbreivation of 'emcee' or 'master of ceremony'?
    .................................................. .................................................. ..................................................

    B. I checked with the dictionary that 'emcee' can be a verb and a noun. Then, are the following sentences correct?

    1. Bo emcees the show.

    2. Bo is the emcee of the show.
    .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .......

    Thank you.

    Yes, it's the abbreviation and it is also used as both a verb and a noun. Both of your sentences are correct. I still find it strange to read it as "emcee" because I have a friend who was an MC for three years and I always used the abbreviation when I wrote it.

    He is the MC of the show.
    He is MCing tonight.

    Yes, they are correct, but remember they are informal.
