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.
Now he will perform his stand-up at the Wycombe Swan on Tuesday, May 26.
His work can be brutally honest and is often considered to be controversial but it is always meticulously thought out and he has never been afraid to face challenging issues head on, even when the focus is on his own principles or beliefs.
He is a well-known face on primetime television shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and QI and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
He has appeared in Argumental for Dave Channel and Would I Lie To You and Live At The Apollo for BBC1 and starred alongside Andy Hamilton in BBC4’s It’s Only A Theory.
