Reggie Watts Gets Loopy at Meltdown Comics

It’s been a busy spring for comedian/songwriter/loop master Reggie Watts. In May he released A¬†Live at Central Park, a CD/DVD set culled from his June 2011 show on¬†Central Park’s Summerstage. Tomorrow night he joins Mr. Show alumnus Scott Auckerman as the musical director on IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!, a mock talk show that features real guests such as Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler and Zach Galifianakis. He’s also nominated for an O Music Award in the “Beyond the DJ” category. The O Music Awards show takes place later this month in New Orleans.

Last month Hive caught up with Watts at L.A.’s Meltdown Comics, where he gave us a close look at his looping techniques. Watch above, and if you’d like to try this at home — go for it.
