WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Internationally renowned vocalist-beatboxer-musician-comedian-improviser Reggie Watts offers audiences utterly unpredictable performances. Following an improvised show for Yoko Ono's Meltdown at Royal Festival Hall, he returns to Southbank Centre for two intimate dates at Queen Elizabeth Hall. The shows will be created on the spot using only his looping pedals and formidable voice. Reggie's lyrics blur the line between comedy and music, and earned LA Weekly's praise as 'the most wildly inventive new talent of the past five years.' He was handpicked by Conan O'Brien to be the opening act on the sold-out North American Prohibited From Being Funny on Television tour in 2010. He was also invited to join alternative dance band LCD Soundsystem as guest onstage at their final New York shows in 2011, and currently stars as house band leader on the IFC original series Comedy Bang Bang with Scott Aukerman.
