W. Kamau Bell

W. Kamau Bell is a socio-political comedian who is the host of CNN’s “United Shades of America.” He may be best known for his critically acclaimed FX comedy series, “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.” The New York Times called Bell “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years,” and the SF Weekly called Bell “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle.” Among the places he has been seen or heard are Comedy Central’s “@midnight,” HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” “Conan,” “Meet The Press,” “WTF with Marc Maron,” “The Rachel Maddow Show,” and “Fresh Air with Terry Gross.” His writing has appeared on VanityFair.com, Salon.com, MSNBC.com, and Buzzfeed. Bell is also proud to be the ACLU’s Ambassador of Racial Justice. Although he’s also pretty upset that they didn’t give him a badge. (Editor’s note: That was not a complete sentence.) These days Bell might be most excited about his podcast with fellow comedian Kevin Avery entitled “Denzel Washington is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period.”
