Fresh from the launch of his new CNN series United Shades of America and his Showtime stand-up comedy special "Semi-Prominent Negro," W. Kamau Bell is back in the Bay Area and ready for the next episode of his live public radio show Kamau Right Now! Kamau aims to create a "three ring circus of relevance" as he and his guests and a live audience try to figure out what is going on right now. There will be provocative conversation and awkward talks. There will be respectful debates. There will be much laughter (and probably a few hugs, too).
Kamau Right Now! will kick off 2017 with a show on the eve of the Trump inauguration -- Thursday, January 19th, live from Odell Johnson Theatre at Laney College in Oakland, just blocks from the Lake Merritt BART station. The show starts at 6:45pm, and we go live on KALW at 7:00pm. If you'd like to be in the audience, tickets are now available.
