Reggie Watts, internationally renowned vocalist/ beatboxer/ musician/ comedian/ improvisor, wows 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 OBrien to open nightly on Conans sold out North American Prohibited From Being Funny on Television tour. Reggie was crowned Hot Comedian by Rolling Stone, named SPIN Magazines Best New Comedian and Best of CMJ 2010, and a featured profile in GQs Man Of The Year issue 2010. Reggie released his debut comedy cd/dvd Why $#!+ So Crazy? on Comedy Central Records in May 2010. A new album recorded at Jack Whites Third Man Records titled Reggie Watts Live at Third Man Records is now available in limited edition vinyl. Reggie recently performed at NYCs Central Park and that show was filmed for a Comedy Central special and cd/dvd release (release date tba). He recently performed a sold out solo headlining tour of the US.
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 Spektors “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 composed original music featured on Season One of Louie FX and performed the theme song for Kristin Schaals Penelope Princess of Pets show. In the Spring of 2011 he recorded an original session for the hugely popular Daytrotter series.
On screen, Reggie has appeared on The Conan OBrien Show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, HBOs The Yes Men Save The World, IFC, Comedy Centrals Michael and Michael Have Issues, Iceland TV, UKs “Funny Or Die,” and PBS Electric Company.
