Bio

Praised by Punchline Magazine as “one of our nation’s most adept racial commentators with a blistering wit,” W. Kamau Bell has been voted SF’s best comedian by three different publications. His album, Face Full of Flour, was named one of the Top 10 Best Comedy Albums of 2010 by iTunes and Punchline Magazine. Kamau is best known for his critically acclaimed solo show The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour, which
was a comedy pick in The Guardian during his recent run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Time Out NY gives him “FOUR STARS” and offers, “Bell finds comic gold...offering provocative insights into an ugly reality.”

"Smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle and Margaret Cho…” “Comedian of the Year!”
— The San Francisco Weekly

"The personable, quick comic skewers racism, stereotypes and an assortment of iconic taboos with provocative wit. --- FOUR STARS"
— The San Francisco Chronicle

"Tall, dark and hilarious... Bell's solo show is daring, insightful, challenging, sometimes interactive, up-to-the-minute—and did I mention hilarious?"
— NYTheatre.com

“W. Kamau Bell plays against type and comes with not only the insights you wish you had spewed first but also the wit."
— The San Francisco Bay Guardian

“By making no subject off limits, keeping no discrimination too taboo, and leaving no room for self-denial, Kamau's Bell Curve is not only a powerful comedic performance but an outlet for a necessary dialogue.”
— Flavorpill.com

“Seldom do homegrown comedians have as much personal magnetism or shrewd observations as W. Kamau Bell.”
— East Bay Express

"Happily, Bell finds comic gold in the wide range of material he mines, offering provocative insights into an ugly reality. FOUR STARS"
— Time Out New York

“One of our country’s most adept racial commentators with a blistering wit… he is relentlessly intelligent.”
— Punchline Magazine
