Description
W. Kamau Bell is quickly rising in the political comedy world. His solo show, The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour, has been selling out in the Bay Area for years. H was named "Comedian of the Year" by the SF Weekly last year and was just voted "Best Comedian" by SF Bay Guardian readers. Kamau has taken The Curve to New York for the Fringe Festival (Time Out NY gave it "4 stars!") and most recently to PS122 in New York for the soloNova Festival, where it received rave reviews and was extended by two additional weeks. Hailed as "one of our country's most adept racial commentators" by Punchlin Magazine, Kamau recently performed at this year's Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where his set was filmed for air on HBO Canada. A former resident of Chicago, this if Kamau's first time bringing The Curve to the Windy City. He'll also be participating in the 2010 Facing Race Conference in Chicago, September 23-25.

"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

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

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

"Bell's reflections on the recent election and Proposition 8, among other race-inflected personal and political matters still closer to home, are topical, to say the least, and run considerably deeper than the usual one-liners or simplistic oppositions of much race-based comedy. RECOMMENDED!"
- The San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle and Margaret Cho, Bell's pissed off about recent celebrity racism... Bell manages to make jokes out of the whole situation, while remaining completely furious."
- The San Francisco Weekly
