The “deliciously strange” (LA Times) comedian, musician, improv expert and general entertainment maestro Reggie Watts returns to the Skirball Center after making an appearance – and quite the impression - last season with comedienne Kristen Schaal.
“Reggie Watts is a comedian like platypuses are mammals: weirdly and awesomely”Rolling Stone
Watts is known to perform an entirely unique show each time he gets on stage with his looping machines and his talented voice. New sounds, multi-media maneuvers and other surprises are expected to take his routine to the next level in this full-length solo performance.
As the opening act for Conan O'Brien's 2010 tour, Watts beat boxed, joked and improvised his way to even more acclaim. There isn't much he hasn't done: he starred on PBS's remake of the classic kids show Electric Company; he created a hilarious video short on CollegeHumor.com; and he released best-selling albums, both on his own and as the front man for Seattle-based Maktub. Rolling Stone, GQ, New York Magazine, Time Out New York and more have sung his praises as one of the country’s rising comedic stars.
