Reese Waters, originally from Washington, D.C., was introduced to comedy by his grandmother’s hysterical impressions. He saw the joy that comedy brought to the world and wanted to be part of it. As one of New York Magazine’s “Comedians To Watch,” Waters has appeared on MTV, NPR, Comedy Central, and The Late Show with David Letterman, with unanimous praise for his stand-up. Waters combined comedy with his passion for sports as co-host of The Daily Line and as a correspondent on ESPN’s Sportscenter. In 2017 Waters returned to his hometown to host Get Up DC! To date, it has not been canceled… Leon Scott opens.
