Reginald D Hunter
Frequently described as the coolest man in comedy, Reginald D Hunter has become an established headline act across the globe. His powerful, straight-talking approach has won him awards, acclaim and a fast-growing reputation. Reg escaped small-town Georgia, USA to pursue his acting dream. He came to the UK to study at RADA, then found himself dabbling in Shakespeare and panto. Faced with life as a struggling actor, he discovered his true calling was comedy. Since those early days Reginald has toured his stand up shows all over the world and frequently appears on television. Reg’s credits have included 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and the three-part BBC Two series Reginald D Hunter's Songs Of The South, which documented Reginald's road trip from North Carolina to New Orleans through 150 years of American popular song. Reginald has been in the UK for just under two decades and in that time he has become one of the UK Comedy industry's best-known performers for his distinctive take on subjects including race and sexuality. His work can be brutally honest and is often considered to be controversial. He is a well-known face on primetime television shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks and QI and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You, Argumental, Would I Lie To You and Live At The Apollo. One of the most charismatic comedians around, Reg also has a natural ability to take an intelligent, sideways look at people and relationships. He is one of a very select group of comedians to be nominated for the Perrier Award three years running.
