With a show somewhere between improv comedy and free jazz, Reggie Watts deconstructs entire mediums of storytelling with his singular (and hilarious) compositions. Riffing on his pop-culture prowess and flair for the absurd, he uses a vocal-looping device to create a stream-of-consciousness swirl of biting, irreverent gags (that have the benefit of being pretty catchy in the end). Largo, 366 N. La Cienega Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Thu. $25. largo-la.com .

NEW YORK - As the first YouTube Music Awards came to a close Sunday night, creative director Spike Jonze thanked the powers that be at the video-sharing website for "letting us make this mess. " He couldn't have chosen a more apt word. The inaugural 90-minute webcast, held in New York City and hosted by actor Jason Schwartzman and comedian Reggie Watts, was conceived as a more spontaneous answer to the Grammys or the Video Music Awards, one in keeping with the anarchic spirit of the Internet.

Nothing summed up the tumult and chaos of the inaugural YouTube Music Awards like webcast director Spike Jonze's final words to host Jason Schwartzman after 88 minutes of unscripted freakiness. "I think we're done," said an exhausted-looking Jonze, having just shimmied out of the strange white protective spacesuit-looking thing he was wearing, likely to protect himself from the chalk and fairy dust that was unleashed during singer M.I.A's performance. Schwartzman too deemed that an appropriate farewell for the night, and he repeated the phrase.
