W. Kamau Bell Expresses Anger with a Smile

Watch Complete Episode: May 10, 2013 »

Former Bay Area stand-up comic W. Kamau Bell has made the big time. After being discovered by comedian Chris Rock, Bell is now host of his own show, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. It returned this week on the FX Channel for 7 episodes, before going to a daily schedule in the fall. His long running one-man show The Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour was a local hit. Bell visited San Francisco recently and talked to KQED's Joshua Johnson about how the Bay Area shaped his comedy style and how he manages to bring humor to the subject of race. "As a black person in America, you have to find humor in race. Otherwise you go crazy."
