In a devastating move, musician-comedian Reggie Watts will be joining The Late Late Show with James Corden as its band leader.
Reggie will be moving from the superior comedy program Comedy Bang! Bang! in order to be the only bright spot in that guaranteed dark miasma of a program starting in March. James Corden is the official replacement for the blessed American citizen Craig Ferguson as he departs his beloved program early next year.
National comedy treasure Scott "Sad Hosterman" Aukerman tweeted about his CBB! co-host Reggie's departure this afternoon.
Reggie is sticking around thru the first half of 2015, during which he have planned a very fitting goodbye for him.— Scott Aukerman (@ScottAukerman) December 12, 2014
Who will be the new bandleader? I can't say yet but it's very exciting. Please listen for newsies shouting on street corners in early 2015.— Scott Aukerman (@ScottAukerman) December 12, 2014
In related news, a rumored afro rivalry between Reggie and Questlove will begin in March 2015, which will likely culminate in an all-out televised brawl in June. Late-night wars indeed!
