Reggie Watts
Reggie Watts

Artist Reggie Watts, a former Exploratorium Osher Fellow, returns to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. The internationally renowned musician, comedian, writer, and actor, currently starring as the bandleader on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden, wows audiences with live performances that are 100% improvised—no two are ever the same. Using his formidable voice, looping pedals, and vast imagination, Watts blurs the lines between music and comedy.
