W. Kamau Bell

When: Thu., Dec. 4, 7-8:30 p.m. 2014

Socio-political comedian W. Kamau Bell has emerged as the post-modern voice of comedy. Named an Ambassador of Racial Justice by the ACLU, his weekly half-hour FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, premiered in August 2012 and became a critically acclaimed but criminally short nightly show in September of 2013 on FX's new comedy network FXX. The NY Times called Kamau "the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years." Kamau's second album, Face Full of Flour, was named one of the Top 10 Best Comedy Albums of the year by iTunes and Punchline Magazine. His one-man show The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About An Hour, received rave reviews, and was a comedy pick in The Guardian the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a Time Out NY critic's pick in the 2010 NY Comedy Festival, and played to sold-out audiences in the 2009 NY International Fringe Festival. Kamau sits on the board of Race Forward, a racial justice think tank and home for media and activism, and Hollaback, a non-profit and movement to end street harassment. He has been featured on WTF with Marc Maron, and is a regular correspondent on The War Room on Current TV. Praised by Punchline Magazine as "one of our nation's most adept racial commentators with a blistering wit," Kamau was voted San Francisco's best comedian by the SF Weekly, the SF Bay Guardian, and 7×7 Magazine. Robin Williams called Kamau "ferociously funny." The SF Weekly called Kamau "smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle," though he was more excited that they called him "handsome."
