The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour

MSU College of Arts & Letters Leading Voices Lecture Series

Pasant Theatre

W. Kamau Bell is a sociopolitical comedian who is the host of the Emmy Award nominated, hit CNN docu-series, United Shades of America. Before United Shades of America, Kamau was best known for his critically acclaimed FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York Times called Kamau “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.” Kamau is also proud to be the ACLU’s Ambassador of Racial Justice. Kamau is also the host of Kamau Right Now!, a public radio talk show that airs on KALW in San Francisco. The SF Weekly called Kamau “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle”. 

Kamau has appeared on various Comedy Central programs (including @midnight and John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show), HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Conan, WTF with Marc Maron, The Rachel Maddow Show, The View, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Henry Louis Gates Jr’s Many Rivers To Cross, Bullseye with Jesse Thorn, The Treatment with Elvis Mitchell, The Nerdist, and This American Life, among others. His writing has appeared in VanityFair.com, Salon, MSNBC.com, Buzzfeed, and The Hollywood Reporter.
