Comedian Profile

Reginald D Hunter is one of the UK comedy scene’s best-known performers for his distinctive take on subjects including race and sexuality. He makes regular appearances on comedy panel shows like 8 Out of  10 Cats and Have I Got News For You.

Having initially travelled to the UK at the age of 27 as a theatre student training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Reginald became a comedian after performing his first comedy set as a dare. He received £100 for this. Realising that he enjoyed performing comedy, Reginald turned his attention from acting to stand-up.

Reginald was nominated for the Perrier Award in the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Edinburgh Festivals, and won the Writers’ Guild Award for Comedy in 2006 for his show Pride & Prejudice… & Niggas.
