ABOUT REGGIE WATTS 

“Deliciously strange” – LA Times 

“Spectacularly original” – New York Magazine 

“Do yourself a big favor and go see him on tour now.” – MTV 

“Musician, comedian, stand-up-surrealist-beat-boxer-force-of-nature”  Radiolab

Reggie Watts, internationally renowned vocalist/beatboxer/musician/comedian/improvisor, amazes audiences with his unpredictable performances, which are created on-the-spot using only his formidable voice and looping pedals. Blending and blurring the lines between comedy and music with his unique lyrical style, LA Weekly calls Reggie ”the most wildly inventive new talent of the past five years.”

As a solo performer, Reggie was handpicked by Conan O’Brien to open nightly on Conan’s sold out North American “Prohibited From Being Funny on Television” tour.  Reggie was crowned “Hot Comedian” by Rolling Stone, named SPIN Magazine’s “Best New Comedian” and “Best of CMJ” 2010, and a featured profile in GQ’s Man Of The Year issue 2010.  Reggie released his debut comedy cd/dvd ‘Why $#!+ So Crazy?’ on Comedy Central Records in May 2010.  He also released ‘Reggie Watts Live at Third Man Records’ in limited edition vinyl on Jack White’s Third Man Records label.  Reggie’s most recent release ‘A Live at Central Park’ is currently available on CD/DVD through Comedy Central Records and on iTunes.

As a musician, Reggie was invited to join LCD Soundsystem as guest onstage at the final NY shows Spring 2011.  He also sang on Regina Spektor’s "Dance Anthem of the 80s" and contributed two tracks to DFA Records’ Spaghetti Circus. As the frontman for Seattle rock outfit Maktub, Reggie and his band released five albums.  Reggie recorded original music featured on FX’s Louie and performed the theme song for Kristin Schaal’s Penelope Princess of Pets. In the Spring of 2011 he recorded an original session for the hugely popular Daytrotter series.

On screen, Reggie has appeared on ConanLate Night With Jimmy Fallon, HBO’s The Yes Men Save The World, Comedy Central’s Michael and Michael Have Issues, Iceland TV, UK’s Funny Or Die, PBS’ Electric Company, and currently stars as house band leader on the IFC original series Comedy Bang Bang with Scott Aukerman.
