Back in 2009, we knew Reggie Watts was headed for stardom. A year and a half later, dude done blown up. He toured with Conan O’Brien, made a music video in which he manages to rap about gerunds and expletives in the same breath, and now he’s coming to the Independent in San Francisco on August 17. We’re not sure whether to call him a musician, comedian, actor, or circus entertainer. Whatever he is, he’s one of those Things You Must Know About. Just watch.
Believe it or not, he’s improvising. The man is a truckload of talent wrapped up in a giant teddy bear suit. If you’re local, don’t miss the chance to experience this 10-pound-fro-banging mythical creature in action.
