Get ready for a mind-bending finale as Reggie Watts, the internationally renowned Musician/Comedian/Writer/Actor, takes center stage to close the Aspen Laugh Festival 2024. Widely recognized for his role as the bandleader on CBS’s “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Watts seamlessly blurs the lines between music and comedy, delivering 100% improvised performances that leave audiences in awe.
Recently making waves as the DJ at the 2021 Emmy Awards, Watts continues to push boundaries. His first Netflix special, “Spatial,” received massive critical acclaim, with The New York Times hailing it as “a giddy rush of escapist nonsense,” and dubbing Watts “the most influential absurdist in comedy today.” A solo performer with a unique musical/comedy fusion, Watts has led sold-out headlining tours in the U.S. and Europe, gracing stages at renowned festivals such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Just For Laughs.
In 2020, Watts launched his content app, WattsApp, providing a techno-savvy glimpse into his life and work. The app features original content, including the show “Droneversations,” where he interviews guests filmed by drones. Watts’ comedic journey began with his debut special, “Why Shit So Crazy?” on Comedy Central Records, followed by the critically acclaimed “Reggie Watts: A Live At Central Park.” His memoir, “Great Falls, MT,” published by Penguin’s Tiny Reparations imprint, adds another dimension to Watts’ multifaceted career.
Born in Germany, raised in Montana, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Reggie Watts promises a finale that transcends the ordinary—a fitting end to the laughter-filled celebration at the Aspen Laugh Festival.
