“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.”
I saw Reggie Watts play some years ago at the Comedy Fest in the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin, Ireland, and it was epic… while it lasted. He was supporting a David O’ Doherty comedy show, outdoors in a tent and there was huge problems with the sound system. Reggie ended up being cut short by two or three power cuts, and eventually gave up, apologised, and left. We were entertained by David O’ Doherty during the blackout in the fashion of Ghost stories, which was pretty freakin lol. Pity however about Reggie, because he sounded so promising, I was baffled because i’d never seen anything like it and it proper just punched ya in the face. He undeniably had talent, but it was hard to figure out what he was doing and it was very refreshing. After the disappointment of the gigfail, I naturally went googling about him and ended up pretty pissed off the chance of seeing a full set was stolen from me by shitty power supplies when I saw how diverse and amazing he is!!! >_<
So here I am a few years later and I'm playing 'Out of Control' again, still loving it and I thought i'd post this video, and hopefully introduce some people to an amazingly talented guy. A testiment to human creativity. He is disgustingly talented, Fact.
His jewellery is also incredible. Fact. Reggie be rockin some amber. ❤
Out of Control
And here is another video, called “Sugar Got it Going On”;
“Getting hired to do what you want to do is a beautiful thing, and it is rare, even though it shouldn’t be.”
