Black president or not, racism continues to make a comeback in America. Whether it’s Rush Limbaugh’s daily treason OR town hall meetings that look like casual Friday Ku Klux Klan rallies OR Henry Louis Gates getting arrested for having a sticky door OR people who don’t understand that a 1961 Hawaiian birth certificate = American citizenship OR Sonia Sotomayor being accused of racism by a racist OR the continued broadcast of BET — racism hasn’t run this rampant since Martin Luther King, Jr. had that dream. Well, comedian W. Kamau Bell is here to make (non)sense of it all, with a seamless mix of stand-up comedy, multimedia, and personal stories. According to Comedy Central, Kamau told the very first joke about Barack Obama way back in 2005. Established in 2007, the Curve is constantly updated in order to be as fresh as the news is skewers.

“Smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle and Margaret Cho… Bell manages to make jokes out of the whole situation, while remaining completely furious.”
