Natalia Reagan is an anthropologist, primatologist, actor, producer, writer, host and comedienne. She is a comedy writer and correspondent on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk on Nat Geo and is also a StarTalk All-Star podcast host. She was the co-host on Spike TV’s show 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty where she used her vast knowledge of primate behavior and fieldwork to judge contestants searching for “the world’s greatest hide and go seek champion”, Bigfoot. Natalia also wrote and produced a web series with her Bigfoot Bounty co-star called Talking Shit with Dr. Todd and Natalia. She was also a regular animal expert on Nat Geo Wild’s Everything You Didn’t Know About Animals. She was a regular writer and host for Discovery Communications DNews, Seeker, & TestTube. She has appeared on the TODAY Show, Fox News, Arise 360, HuffPost Weird News Podcast, and various podcasts & radio shows weighing in on different scientific subjects, from the evolution of boobs and butts to how pheromones play a role in human mating.
As an actress, Natalia has appeared in My Name is Earl, The Drew Carey Show, Better Off Ted, and Sex Drive. When not chasing Bigfoot or discussing the evolution of boobs, Natalia also works with a critically endangered subspecies of spider monkey, the Azuero spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi azuerensis) in rural Panama and runs BOAS Network, an anthropology website that brings anthropology to the mainstream.
Before Natalia’s stint chasing ornery spider monkeys through the wilds of Central America, she wrote and performed sketch comedy and was in an improv troupe called The Omelettes. She has appeared in My Name is Earl, Better off Ted, Sex Drive, and she is ¼ of the wacky gang of gals on the hilarious web series New Age Girls in which she plays “Stevie” the militant hippy of the bunch.
Natalia is also the co-founder and chief creative director of BOAS Network, a non-profit organization that brings the field of anthropology to the mainstream via fun and educational videos. Her ultimate goal is to meld her two passions, humor and science, to educate the public about the fascinating world around them all while making them do a spit-take.
Natalia currently bicoastal living in New York and Los Angeles all while maintaining a “pants optional” lifestyle.
