The magnificently coiffed leader of the house band for The Late Late Show with James Corden is among a bunch of new names announced for the JFL NorthWest comedy fest lineup coming up next month.
Reggie Watts, who jumps easily between beatboxing and playing instruments and standup comedy, brings his notoriously 100-percent improvised show, Hey it's me, Reggie Watts, to the Vogue Theatre on February 23.
Elsewhere on the newly announced roster is Natasha Leggero, the actor, writer, and standup comedian who's popped up everywhere from Comedy Central Roasts to Neighbors with Seth Rogen. She hits the Vogue on February 22.
And Canadian Comedy Award winner DeAnne Smith, perhaps most widely known as the woman behind the videoStraight Men, Step Your Game Up (which has hit 46 million views and counting) plays the Rio Theatre on February 15. You can check out her standup style on her new standup special Gentleman Elf.
The fest has also unveiled the program for the Howie Mandel & Friends showcase at the Orpheum on February 14: Roy Wood Jr., correspondent for The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, shares the stage with YouTube star, actor, comedian, and musician Flula Borg and and emerging comic and trained opera singer Matteo Lane.
