REGGIE WATTS brings his unique style of improvised musical comedy back to COMEDY CENTRAL with the world premiere of “REGGIE WATTS: A LIVE AT CENTRAL PARK,” airing Friday, May 11 at 1am ET. In this all new special, the internationally renowned vocalist/beatboxer/musician/comedian performs live in Central Park using nothing more than his formidable voice, keyboard and a looping machine to create completely impromptu musical sets. Whether he’s explaining why Cingular was the only cellular provider to first offer him service, what his cue word is, or why guns will always be louder than knives, Watts continues to prove why he is a master of blending and blurring the lines between comedy and music. 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.
‘Reggie Watts: A LIVE IN CENTRAL PARK’ CD/DVD will be released by Comedy Central Records on May 15. Watts’ new full-length contains both an album of storytelling and his best new songs, including the single “Having Sex,” plus a DVD of the live performance and COMEDY CENTRAL special. ‘Reggie Watts: A LIVE IN CENTRAL PARK’ follows the release of Watts’ debut comedy album ‘Why $#!+ So Crazy?’ featuring his hit “F*ck Sh*t Stack,” and ‘Reggie Watts Live at Third Man Records,’ available on limited edition vinyl on Jack White’s Third Man label.
Reggie will also be striking out on a US tour which starts May 16 in Chicago and hits Philly, NYC, DC, Atlanta, Austin, Seattle and more.
