Reginald D Hunter

His presence and intelligence make him one of the most brilliantly unpredictable comics in the country” - The Sunday Times

Reginald D. Hunter is an American born comic who has been residing in the United Kingdom since the age of 27, when the classically trained theater student did his first stand-up on a dare. That experience derailed his studies at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and Hunter shifted from acting to stand-up.

He makes people uncomfortable, shaking their suppositions and airing plenty of his own dirty laundry. If his television appearances have presented him as a comic of companionable yet risque wit, then Hunter’s stand-up proves him a hard hitting pugilist. His jokes ring true and often hit very close to home. The Times called him “Comically astute, rewardingly provocative”.

Born in 1969 in Albany, Georgia, Hunter’s early life experiences as a boy growing up in the deep south influence his work and sharply contrasts with his life as an American black man in England. Global politics, the cultural variances from both sides of the pond, sex and relationships all provide fodder for his muse. His style is honest, his material is controversial, and his delivery … well see it for yourself.

In November 2011, Hunter released his first DVD Live, recorded at two sell-out shows from London’s iconic HMV Hammersmith Apollo earlier that year. He supported that release with a wildly successful tour, playing to sold out audiences throughout the UK, that was extended with an encore tour in early 2012. Live was produced and distributed by Universal.

Even the titles of Hunter’s tours have caused controversy. He won the Writers’ Guild Award for Comedy in 2006 for his show Pride and Prejudice… and Niggas, and played to capacity crowds during his tour with Trophy Nigga, although many venues wouldn’t post the name of the show and the London Underground banned the promo posters.

Hunter was nominated for the Perrier Award in the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, where in 1998 he was a finalist in the So You Think You’re Funny Competition.

Hunter has been a consistent presence in British television with regular appearances on Have I Got News For You (BBC), Live at the Apollo (BBC 1), It’s Only A Theory (BBC 4) (Reg did the complete series), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and has appeared on the BBC Radio 4 comedy show The Unbelievable Truth.

MAGIC…HIS IS A PERFECT SET” – The Guardian

The success of his live performances has led to Reginald becoming a regular face on television with appearances in The 11 O’Clock Show (Ch 4), Does Doug Know with Daisy Donovan (Ch 4), Boozy Britain (Ch 4) and Comedy Store Stand-up (Ch 5) amongst others.

In November 2004 he recorded Eight Out Of Ten Cats, a TV pilot with Jimmy Carr (Ch 4) and has just completed filming a new pilot, Black Out, for Channel 4. Conceived by Reginald – who also stars in the show – and written by him in collaboration with John Gordillo, Black Out is a social comedy exploring the human condition through the eyes of a white, middle-class woman who suffers from a surreal reaction to stress.

Currently working on a new show that he hopes to take to Montreal and a television chat show, Reginald is planning his debut performance in the USA later this year.
