Socio-political comedian W. Kamau Bell has emerged as the postmodern voice of comedy. Named an “Ambassador of Racial Justice” by the ACLU, his weekly half-hour FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, premiered in August 2012 and had a critically acclaimed but criminally short run. Punchline Magazine praised him as “one of our nation’s most adept racial commentators with a blistering wit.” SF Weekly called Kamau “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle,” though Bell was more excited that they called him “handsome.”
