About the Author
Reggie Watts is an internationally renowned musician/comedian/writer who starred as the bandleader on CBS's The Late Late Show with James Corden and IFC's Comedy Bang Bang!. Using nothing but his voice, his looping pedals, and his vast imagination, Watts blurs the lines between music and comedy with a resume that includes multiple specials and appearances across platforms such as Comedy Central and Netflix.
*A Vulture Best Comedy Book of 2023*

"Reminiscent of experimental meta-memoirs like A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Great Falls, MT is earnest, optimistic, and future-forward but also nostalgic for (and critical of) times gone by, particularly the '90s grunge boom and that greater Pacific Northwest-based cultural moment." -Vulture

"Joyful" -The New York Times Book Review

"Fans of Watts will revel in this enjoyable stroll into the past, and those new to him could have no better introduction." -Kirkus

"Watts is a droll, endearing narrator, delivering his account with the rapid-fire patter of a good improv act. Budding performers and comedy fans alike will find much to love."-Publishers Weekly

"The rhythms, spontaneity, and wide-eyed curiosity of Watts's singular musical-comedy act work monumentally well as a book... Most affecting: Watts's visceral and immersive first-hand account of the '90s grunge boom and the comedy scenes from later in that decade along with some sweet and honest passages about his parents." -Vulture, Best Comedy Book of 2023 Roundup

"It makes sense that one of our most original and surreal comedians would have an upbringing to match, having been forged in the crucible of Montana via Europe. Reggie's telling of his story is a delight, exceeded only by my ability to use "crucible" in a sentence." -Conan O'Brien

"This gripping memoir is equal parts relatable small-town upbringing and unfathomable noise-wizard jazz-clown origin story. Eleventy stars!" -Nick Offerman

"Reggie Watts fits in no box. He is no type of person. Find out how this fascinating and fascinated dude came to be by reading the combination of words he put together on the pages in this book and maybe you will love him like I do." -Sarah Silverman

"Great Falls, MT deepens my understanding of Reggie Watts while keeping the mysteriousness around his incredible art intact. How did this brilliant, wonderful person get here? This book makes his path seem like something more logical than improbable. Of course he became this person! It's the same way I feel about Liverpool and The Beatles, or Minneapolis and Prince." -Fred Armisen
