Reggie Watts & Natasha Leggero
Central Park Mainstage (mid-park, 72nd St., Manhattan)
Hilarious, brilliant, unpredictable comedian/musician Reggie Watts is a staple of the international performance scene.
Reggie’s improvised musical sets are created on-the-spot using only his voice and a looping machine. No two songs are ever the same. An avowed “disinformationist,” Reggie loves to disorientate his audiences in the most entertaining way. You may not know what Reggie is going to do, but that’s okay – he doesn’t either. By blending the genres of music and comedy, Reggie has appeared on every form of media imaginable, from touring and appearing on TV with late night host, Conan O’Brien to releasing his highly acclaimed debut comedy cd/dvd, “Why $#!+ So Crazy?” in May 2010. Join him as he rocks SummerStage with his impromptu lyrical style and see why The LA Times has called him “deliciously strange.”
Natasha Leggero is an actress and comedian who can be seen regularly on E!’s, “Chelsea Lately” and is famed for her witty humor and appearances in movies and shows as diverse as “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” to stand-up on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” As a star in Comedy Central’s new hit animated series, “Ugly Americans,” she has been gaining notoriety for both her acting as well as her stand-up, touring the country headlining packed comedy clubs.
