Montana’s Most Colorful Character Coming Back for Christmas Shows
Trying to typecast Reggie Watts into any one entertainment category is an impossible task. Fortunately, you won't have to, when the Montana-bred comedian and musician resumes his tradition of home-state shows during the Christmas holiday.
Even though he's become an acclaimed star in recent years, the 50-year-old entertainer loves his Montana roots, growing up with his Air Force family in Great Falls. And his holiday visits back to the Treasure State have become a tradition with his long-time fans, or people just discovering his diverse talent.
Watts' stage performance is a whirling dervish of fun, as he moves back and forth from keyboards to beatboxing, looping pedals, singing, and tons of comedy, giving improvisation a whole new meaning. It was those skills that first brought him to the attention of fans and the media, with a New York Times critic dubbing his first Netflix special a "giddy rush of escapist nonsense."
That diversity lead to his primary gig as the band leader and sidekick to James Corden on the Late Late Show, where he's brought a funny, and unpredictable spin to Cordan's show. But he hasn't stopped there, continuing to produce music, shows, and even his own app last year called WattsApp, offering a "look into his life, work, and techno junk drawer." And he's appeared on Celebrity Jeopardy.
