Reggie Watts to Tour, Appear on Comedy Central

Soulive singer turned comedian Reggie Watts has confirmed national tour. The “improvised musical” comedian will kick off his upcoming tour in Chicago on May 16 and make stops in markets across the county. The comedians new special Reggie Watts: A Live At Central Park will also air on Comedy Central on Friday, May 11 at 1AM ET. In this all new special, the vocalist/beatboxer/musician/comedian performs live in Central Park using nothing more than his formidable voice, keyboard and a looping machine. As a fun bonus to the special, a reoccurring sketch is woven throughout the stage sets where the adventurous Watts tries to determine whether his performance in the Park was real or just a dream.

I dunno, I just don’t think this guy is that funny…maybe I’m too old, but I saw him open for Conan O’Brien’s tour, did nothing for me. Quite frankly, he scares me just looking at him…

So excited to see him at webster hall on the 20th. Reggie is awesome. We recorded with him at Metrosonic Studio in Brooklyn a few months ago and it was a blast. Check out our post about him – http://www.metrosonic.net/blog/?p=975
