Comedy star Reginald D Hunter will be coming to the William Aston Hall in Wrexham on May 7.

Having appeared at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and Sydney Opera House Gala in Australia early in 2014, Reginald then made his debut in New Zealand at their Comedy Festival Opening Gala before going on to appear in Auckland and Wellington.

He then moved closer to home with his first tour of mainland Europe before travelling back to his birthplace in America to film Reginald D Hunter’s Songs Of The South, which is due for transmission in early 2015.

It is a three-part BBC2 series documenting Reginald’s epic road trip from North Carolina to New Orleans through 150 years of American popular song.

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.

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.

Reginald has toured the UK almost constantly since arriving here - entertaining a diverse audience from teenagers to grandparents in some of the country’s most iconic venues.

His highly popular debut DVD – Reginald D Hunter Live – was one of the top sellers in the DVD comedy charts as was his follow up DVD – Reginald D Hunter: In The Midst of Crackers.
