Reggie Watts

Van Duzer Theater
Spectacularly original comedian/musician/performance artist Reggie Watts spins out riotous, stream of consciousness monologues laced with improvised songs he creates on-the-spot, using only his voice and a looping machine. 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.”
