Missoula lost one of its funniest and most beloved comedic actors this year, Justin Fatz. So his old pal, world-famous comedian, Reggie Watts, is coming to town to make us laugh our asses off and raise some money to help Justin's family pay the bills. What a guy, right?!
Opening acts include comedy from Missoula's own 'Lucinda & Lulinda: The Home Shopping Girls', and the hilarious Great Falls goofball trio, 'Loose Women & Good Beer', with musical intervals from Josh Farmer.

More about Reggie Watts:
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 formidable 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.
As a solo performer, Reggie was handpicked by Conan O'Brien to open nightly on Conan's entire North American "Prohibted From Being Funny on Television" tour. Reggie was featured as "Hot Comedian" in Rolling Stone's Hot Issue 2010, named SPIN Magazine's "Best New Comedian" and "Best of CMJ" 2010, and a featured profile in GQ's Man Of The Year issue 2010. Reggie released his debut comedy cd/dvd 'Why $#!+ So Crazy?' on Comedy Central Records in May 2010. He has a new album entitled 'Reggie Watts Live at Third Man Records' which will be available limited edition vinyl Spring 2011.
On screen, Reggie has appeared on The Conan O'Brien Show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, HBO's The Yes Men Save The World, Comedy Central's Michael and Michael Have Issues, Iceland TV, UK's "Funny Or Die," PBS' revamped Electric Company and the music video "What About Blowjobs?" for College Humor. Reggie can also be seen in short comedic interstitials during Comedy Central's late night block and has a pilot for the channel in the works.
As a musician, Reggie recorded the EP Pot Cookies through Normative Records, sang on Regina Spektor's "Dance Anthem of the 80s" and contributed two tracks to DFA Records' Spaghetti Circus. Also the frontman for Seattle rock outfit Maktub, Reggie and his band released five albums. Reggie recorded original music featured on Louis CK's show on FX and performed the theme song for Kristin Schaal's "Penelope Princess of Pets" show.
He has played sold-out solo runs at Fusebox, SXSW, Bonnaroo, Soho Theatre (London), Brian Eno's Luminous Festival at the Sydney Opera House, Montreal Comedy Festival, PopTech!, Vancouver Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Sydney Festival, Outside Lands Festival and cities throughout the world including Amsterdam, Paris, Cologne, Madrid, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Melbourne, Cape Town and Rekjavik, among others. Reggie recently received the ARGUS ANGEL AWARD 2010 In Recognition Of Artistic Excellence at the Brighton Festival. In New York, Reggie regularly performs at The Box, UCB, Comix, the Bellhouse, Slipper Room, Caroline's, Union Hall and Moonwork. Reggie also received the ECNY Award (2009) and Andy Kaufmann Award (2006) for his brand of innovative stand-up performance.
