W. Kamau Bell is a sociopolitical comedian who is the host of the Emmy Award nominated, hit CNN docu-series, United Shades of America. Before United Shades, Kamau was best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York Times called Kamau “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.”

Kamau is also proud to be the ACLU’s Ambassador of Racial Justice. Although he’s also pretty upset that they didn’t give him a badge. Kamau is also the host of Kamau Right Now!, a public radio talk show that airs on KALW in San Francisco. And he is also excited about his new politics podcast with his friend, comedian Hari Kondabolu, called Politically Re-Active. But Kamau may be most excited about his podcast Denzel Washington is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period. The SF Weekly called Kamau “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle,” though he was more excited that they called him “handsome”.
