Reginald D Hunter will bring his unique brand of observational comedy to Glasgow’s Kings Theatre for one night in March!
Reginald D Hunter returns to the Glasgow International Comedy Festival following his UK tour and a hugely successful year filming and performing around the world. He recently travelled back to his birthplace in America to film the hugely popular documentary series, Reginald D Hunter’s Songs Of The South, for BBC2.
Reginald D Hunter first made his mark on the UK circuit in 1998, when he was a finalist in So You Think You’re Funny. He has been appearing in his own acclaimed one-man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2002, when ‘I Said What I Said’ was nominated for the best newcomer Perrier. In 2003 he was nominated for the main Perrier prize for ‘White Woman’ and 2005 for ‘A Mystery Wrapped In A Nigga’. He was also nominated for best headliner in the Chortle Awards in 2004 and 2007.
Often a little controversial, Hunter got himself in a bit of trouble last year when he casually dropped the N-word with his usual frequency, at a dinner for the Professional Footballers’ Association. He claims he doesn’t like discussing racism, but his audience have certain expectations now, and it is testament to his comedic talent that he can get laughs even after talking to the audience about such cases as that of murdered black teenager Trayvon Martin.
Always hilarious, Reginald D Hunter is one not to miss. Make sure you get your tickets soon!
