Reggie Watts at PopTech

Posted filed underMusic, Satire, Talks, Videos.


Anyone else feels like the TED Talks need a parody? Well, Reggie Watts, the final performer on the PopTech stage, sends the audience off in style with his characteristic blend of wry improvisational humor and unpredictable musical riffs. Using only his microphone and a looping machine, Watts creates a brilliant pastiche of the conference and brings the conference attendees to their feet to dance.

Wikipedia: Reggie Watts (born March 23, 1972) is a Brooklyn-based comedian and musician. His shows are mostly improvised and consist of stream of consciousness stand-up in various shifting personae, mixed with loop pedal-based a cappella compositions. He performs regularly on television, radio, and in live theater. His comic skills come into play in improvisational performance, as well as performance of written music.
