W. Kamau Bell is a socio-political comedian best known for his critically acclaimed FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. In its brief time, Totally Biased was nominated for both an NAACP Image Award and a GLAAD Award. Chris Rock was the executive producer of Totally Biased, who became a fan after seeing a performance of Kamau’s one-man show, The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour. Kamau still performs that show at colleges across the country. Bell has recently been announced as the host of CNN’s upcoming travel show, The United Shades of America.  He is also proud to be the ACLU’s Ambassador of Racial Justice, as well as sitting on the advisory board of Race Forward, a racial justice think tank, and Hollaback, a non-profit movement to end street harassment. These days, Kamau might be most excited about his weekly podcast, Denzel Washington is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period, with fellow comedian Kevin Avery .
