After wowing audiences in Montreal for the esteemed “Just For Laughs” comedy festival, Reggie Watts brings his off the wall and entertaining music comedy stylings to Comix for one night only on Thursday, October 18th.
Eugene Mirman calls Reggie "Amazing and unlike anything you have ever seen. Unless you have seen a comedic stream of conscious operatic beat-boxing marvel. Then it's like that.”
Reggie is an internationally renowned vocalist/beatboxer/musician/comedian/improviser and sometimes touring member of the band Soulive. Subjects for the Watts treatment range from ancient history, technology, magic, spirit elves, dragons, mythology and theology to pop culture. The music incorporates hip-hop, trip-hop, 80’s pop alternative, numetal and classical opera, no two songs are ever the same. Reggie loves to disorientate and confuse people in the most entertaining way.
His comedic experience includes the New York/L.A. alternative comedy scenes, the Montreal, Cape Town and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals plus several BBC live radio events. His brand of comedy is self-coined as "dissinformationist”. In addition to the Andy Kaufman Award, he is winner of the 2005 Malcolm Hardee "Oye Oye" Award.
I am speechless. Watts is, in the best sense, unpredictable and indescribable, though I'll try 'a sonic Salvador Dali'. – Chortle.co.uk
