Reagen Allen was named by the World Economic Forum as a Global Shaper. He is a registered Debt Counselor with the National Credit Regulator in terms of the National Credit Act, which effectively made him the youngest person to be registered in South Africa with the implementation of the said act in 2007. Served as the DA Youth Federal Media and Publicity Chairman (June 2011 - May 2013) and was accepted as a DHL "Tomorrow's Leader" - He is a DA Young Leader Programme graduate; Freedom House ENGLSA Fellow Alumni, and a Young Ambassador for the Global Responsible Leadership Initiative.


Reagen's style of comedy can be described in three words: Intelligent, Witty and Hilarious! He doesn't give a f - literally. And with a mixture of one-liners, puns and story-telling, he is able to share his experiences and observations in an extremely funny way, & address the various social issues we face on a daily basis.

According to him, he was voted as the second funniest person; in his house. But he was the winner of the 2017 Armchair Ketchup competition, in Cape Town - which featured new up and coming comedians. Reagen is new to comedy, but has performed at various venues across the City, including the Baxter Theater, as the opening act for the RAW (Real Art Wednesdays) showpiece, and alongside some of the biggest names in South Africa.

Ps: No relation whatsoever to Woody, and with the odds already against me, I wont underscore my name (on social media)
