Reggie Watts is excited to walk James Corden through a gardening demo
Reginald Lucien Frank Roger “Reggie” Watts (born March 23, 1972) is an American musician, singer, beatboxer, actor, and comedian. His improvised musical sets are created using only his voice, a keyboard, and a looping machine.
Watts refers to himself as a “disinformationist”, aiming to disorient his audiences. He performs regularly on television, radio, and stage. He appeared on the IFCseries Comedy Bang! Bang!, which began airing in 2012. He currently leads the house band for The Late Late Show with James Corde
Watts currently serves as the bandleader and announcer for The Late Late Show with James Corden. He has described his role on the show as “… a mix of Paul Shaffer and Andy Richter.” His band on the show is unofficially named “Karen”. Watts has a slot on the show to ask a guest a question about anything (called Reggie’s Question on show clips). The questions are a continuation of his time on Comedy Bang! Bang!, and follow his preference for surreal comedy in his stand-up act.
