Reggie Watts is an internationally renowned Musician/Comedian/Writer/Actor who most recently starred as the bandleader on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden. Using his formidable voice, looping pedals, and his vast imagination, Watts blends and blurs the lines between music and comedy, wowing audiences with performances that are 100% improvised. Watts’ first Netflix special Spatial released to massive critical acclaim, with the New York Times calling it “a giddy rush of escapist nonsense” and dubbing Watts “the most influential absurdist in comedy today.” The A.V. Club described Spatial as “signature Watts, meaning it’s alternately exhilarating, silly, exhausting and transcendent,” and Exclaim! Magazine called his performance “engaging, absurd, thoughtful and, most importantly, wholly unpredictable.”
This event is in partnership with the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and includes a signing with books available for pre-order.
When would the link be available today?
Stoked to see Reggie!!!!! His info blurb did NOT mention one of his fine works as the band leader for the IFC TV show, Comedy Bang! Bang!. Someone's gotta shout it out. He's on seasons 1 through half of the third season.
Bummed that this is not at a bigger venue. When I got the email from AADL, it was already sold out…
