W. Kamau Bell
What you need to know: With a post-modern perspective, Kamau brings audiences provocative insights as well as very human, very necessary commentary on the headlines of the day, from race relations to cultural divides. His edgy yet level-headed view will have you contemplating the state of the world long after he has left the stage.
Kamau’s special, Semi-Prominent Negro, aired on Showtime this past April. His one man show, Ending Racism in About An Hour has been praised by audiences and critics from leading outlets, including The Guardian and Time Out New York.
