My Interview on The Sound of Young America

I met Jesse Thorn waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day when he was a student at UC Santa Cruz and he would have comics on his college radio show. He put on a few live comedy shows and I got to be on one. He is also responsible for blowing me up on the Internet one time when he reposted a blog that I had written on MySpace (Remember Myspace?) about Sarah Silverman being a racist. (Don't ask.) It even got posted on (I said, don't ask.) Well years later Jesse is now the next big thing in public radio, and I'm... basically a more focused version of what I was back then. Here's our discussion about all that. And Thanks, Jesse for putting me on the show, even though you are HUGE now.

W. Kamau Bell is a San Francisco-based comedian who soaks up politics and pop culture and filters it through a racial lens, using his irreverent thoughts and critiques as fodder for his comedy.

He's released several comedy albums, including Face Full of Flour and One Night Only. He recently ended a run of his one-man show, The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour. His television appearances include performances on Comics Unleashed and Comedy Central, and he is a co-founder of The Solo Performance Workshop.
