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.
