Reggie Watts BIO:
Hilarious, brilliant, unpredictable – comedian/musician Reggie Watts is a staple of the international performance scene. Reggie’s improvised musical sets are created on-the-spot using only his formidable voice and a looping machine. No two songs are ever the same. An avowed “disinformationist,” Reggie loves to disorientate his audiences in the most entertaining way. You may not know what Reggie is going to do, but that’s okay – he doesn’t either.
As a solo performer, Reggie was handpicked by Conan O’Brien to open nightly on Conan’s entire North American “Prohibted From Being Funny on Television” tour. Reggie was featured “Hot Comedian” in Rolling Stone’s Hot Issue 2010 and 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.
On screen, Reggie has appeared on Late 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’ revamped Electric Company and the music video “What About Blowjobs?” for College Humor. Reggie can also be seen in short comedic interstitials during Comedy Central’s late night block and has a pilot for the channel in the works.
As a musician, Reggie recently recorded the EP Pot Cookies through Normative Records, sang on Regina Spektor’s “Dance Anthem of the 80s” and contributed two tracks to DFA Records’ Spaghetti Circus. Also the frontman for Seattle rock outfit Maktub, Reggie and his band recently released their fifth album, Five. Reggie performs the theme song for Kristin Schaal’s new “Penelope Princess of Pets” show and also recorded original music featured on Louis CK’s show on FX.
He has played sold-out solo runs at Fusebox, SXSW, Bonnaroo, Soho Theatre (London), Brian Eno’s Luminous Festival at the Sydney Opera House, Montreal Comedy Festival, PopTech!, Vancouver Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Sydney Festival, Outside Lands Festival and cities throughout the world including Amsterdam, Paris, Cologne, Madrid, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Melbourne, Cape Town and Rekjavik, among others. Reggie recently received the ARGUS ANGEL AWARD 2010 In Recognition Of Artistic Excellence at the Brighton Festival. In New York, Reggie regularly performs at The Box, UCB, Comix, the Bellhouse, Slipper Room, Caroline’s, Union Hall and Moonwork. Reggie also received the ECNY Award (2009) and Andy Kaufmann Award (2006) for his brand of innovative stand-up performance.
