Reggie Watts: Kid Cudi taught art of band-leading in Comedy Bang! Bang!

Posted on


Kid Cudi replaced Reggie Watts as the resident band leader on Comedy Bang! Bang! this past summer, and apparently his predecessor left some advice behind in the form of an ’80s-flavored instructional video. Cudi introduces the tutorial in a new clip from an upcoming episode of the IFC show. 

Watts, who left Comedy! Bang! Bang! to take his musical talents to The Late Late Show with James Cordensings about how a good band leader need to laugh at host Scott Aukerman “even though he isn’t funny” and suggests making coffee for whenever the show gets a bit boring. 

Watch the clip below, and see the full episode, which will feature guest Kathryn Hahn, when it airs on IFC Thursday at 11:30 p.m. ET.
