Aparna Nancherla and Guy Branum showed us what not to wear to a protest on last night’s Totally Biased.
Aparna Nancherla blew it up on Totally Biased last night. And she almost blew me and Kevin Avery away.
From last night’s episode I got Barack’s back & show America a real scandal.
This is the official announcement of THE TOTALLY BIASED STAND UP TOUR presented by my friends at FXX! Joining me will be a rotating lineup of the amazing Totally Biased writers, including Kevin Avery, Guy Branum, Janine Brito, Kevin Kataoka, Dwayne Kennedy, Hari Kondabolu, and Aparna Nancherla. All shows will feature us doing standup followed by a Q&A. Tickets are on sale on Friday, but since you guys are my friends, I’d like to give you a chance to get tickets before the regular people. PRESALE TICKETS will be available HERE starting at 10am local tomorrow (5/15)!
The exciting thing about this tour for me is that I get to go to some of my favorite cities AND cities I’ve never performed in. I’m looking at you San Diego, Boston, Atlanta and Orlando. Hopefully one of these cities is somewhere near you!
Seeing us onstage not enough?
Buy a tee with your ticket purchase, wear it to the show, and get access to a special post-show group photo! We cannot wait for this tour, it is going to be a great time!

Last night on Totally Biased we asked, “Anything You Have Anything to Say to a White Guy?” with Ethan Berlin.
Here is my interview with Melissa Harris Perry. We bury the hatchet (that she didn’t know we had). #nerdland
Check out our piece on hero and human lolcat Charles Ramsey.
My comedy daughter, Janine Brito, revealed a hidden secret about the LGBT community on last night’s Totally Biased. Enjoy!
I know we’ve been gone for a while, but… TOTALLY BIASED IS BACK TOMORROW! With special guest MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY. You’re welcome #nerdland. We have 7 more episodes before summer. That means 7 more chances to be a part of our live audience in NYC! Get your FREE tickets HERE.
This has been a very exciting time for the FX Network family since it has announced the launch of a sister network, FXX starting in September. And guess what show will be on FXX 5 nights a week… Thats right, TOTALLY BIASED! Crazy, right? FXX will also be home to other amazing comedy shows, like “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “Archer,” “The League,” and “Arrested Development” to name a few. It’s because of all your kind words and support that this was possible so on behalf of the whole crew I wanna thank you so much! Keep tuning in and spreading the word.
On May 15th you can catch me on “KATIE” with Katie Couric at 3pm ET. The last morning show I invaded was “The View,” and believe me, Katie enjoyed my comedy way more than Barbara Walters did!
And… I have a huge announcement involving my summer plans and hopefully yours! Check back Wednesday for the update.
See you out there.
SAN FRANCISCO / OAKLAND
So some of you may have heard that I am doing a couple of shows at Stage Werx on March 23 and 24. They are benefit shows. 100% of the proceeds are going to Stage Werx, because I love them and they have been very supportive of me over the years and I’ve done a lot of things there. Fortunately for Stage Werx, the shows sold out very quickly, thanks to articles like this one. And also fortunately for any of you who didn’t get tickets, I decided to put on another show in the Bay Area, in Oakland, at my favorite Oakland venue, The New Parish, on April 7. A portion of the proceeds of this show will benefit The Applied Research Center, who runs Colorlines.com, because I love them. You can get tickets here.
The Kamau Mau Uprising Stand-up Tour is coming to Washington, DC on April 21! I am super excited to be back in DC doing stand-up. I know this is not a lot of warning but if you are in the DC/Baltimore/Virginia area I’d LOOOOOOOOVE to see you out there. I’m bringing Totally Biased’s own Aparna Nancherla to open for me. So it promises to be a great show. Here is the link for presale tickets.
The fanclub presale starts TODAY, March 20, at 10am through March 21 at 10pm. Then we open it up to the general public, so get the good seats now! PRESALE TICKETS HERE (the password is milkshakes).
NEW YORK CITY
I am making my New York City comedy club headlining debut at the historic Caroline’s Comedy Club, April 25 – 28. This a legendary NYC venue. It’s been featured in Louis CK’s show, Louie, and it was it’s on TV show, The Caroline Comedy Hour. I even got to open for Dick Gregory twice there what seems like a million years go but is actually probably two. I have convinced the club to give people on my list a discount code. So if you are in the NYC area, come on through. TICKETS HERE. The code is milkshakes and that will get you $5 off.
CHECK OUT MY FRIENDS
Sometimes I want you people to go do other things that aren’t so WKB centric, so…
See you out there,
WOW! So we taped episode 19 of “Totally Biased,” and now we have a little bit of a break before we start up with our next 7 episodes on May 9th. I know I said this before, but it’s a crazy to have started with 6 and now to be where we are with 19 under our collective belts. I just want to thank to the people at FX, my manager Keri, and the continued mentorship/stewardship/chrisrockship of Chris Rock. But also let me take this opportunity to thank all of the writers and staff of “Totally Biased,” who have way more TV production experience than I do, and who have been really generous about helping me get through this process. I am proud of all of the episodes of “Totally Biased,” but I am especially proud of these last 6. It just feels like we’re starting to hit a groove.
Although it’s a break from “Totally Biased,” it’s not completely a break for me. I have a bunch of college shows to do, and I’ll be at SXSW with several of the writers from Totally Biased. Check out my full schedule here. I also plan to check out a Living Colour concert in NY and/or SF. WHOOOHOOO!
And now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for. I still have a few of those tees left with my face on them, and I know what you’ve been thinking: “I would like a t-shirt with W. Kamau Bell’s face on it, but it’s a little too expensive.” Well now I have a discount for you. For a limited time (until we run out) you can get these half price HERE.
And I know it’s been a while since we talked. I just want to thank you all for your support for me and for “Totally Biased.” Here are a few of my favorite clips from recent episodes, for you to check out and hopefully use to spread the word. I couldn’t do it without you, literally.
We were featured on Huffpost Comedy! Was it for our scathing socio-political commentary? Nope. It was for our dancing! A Totally Biased take on the meme of the Harlem Shake.
On this weeks episode, Hannibal Burress debuted a new line of Valentine’s Day cards to help you date a black person!
