Reginald D Hunter - A Biography
Reginald D Hunter was born in Georgia, in the United States, in 1969. His forst focus was on acting, and he won an acting internship in Mississippi at the tender age of 20, before going on to study at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. He performed his first stand up set as a dare, making £100 in the process - leading him to turn his talents away from the dramatic arts and focus on his new passion of comedy. He's since enjoyed a wildly successful career, particularly in the UK, where he moved in 2002. Known for his dry wit and on-the-nose observational comedy, he's been busy building a legion of devoted fans who turn out in their droves to his live appearances ever since.
Since crossing the Atlantic in search of fame on fortune, Reginald D Hunter has gained an enviably high profile, thanks to his frequent appearances on Channel 4's '8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown' and his own three-part special on BBC2, 'Reginald D Hunter's Songs of the South', in which he travelled from North Carolina to New Orleans, embarking on an epic journey through 150 years of American popular song. That success has more than translated into a hugely successful career on the stage, as Reginald has showcased his unique brand of satirical humour in sold out shows all over Europe and embarked on a critically acclaimed tour of Ireland in 2013, performing his stage show 'In the Midst of Crackers'. He often includes material that draws upon his intimate personal life in his shows, such as the death of his mother prior to his departure from the United States in 2006.
Reginald D Hunter has been a regular on the festival circuit, and his comedy was nominated for the Perrier award at the famous Edinburgh Festival in 2002, 2003 and 2004. He later took a seat with the hosts of 'E4 Laughs at Edinburgh', judging some of the best new acts in the festival. In 2006 he won the Writer's Guild Award for comedy for his show 'Pride & Prejudice...& Niggas'.
