Berkeley-based comedian W. Kamau Bell has demonstrated that for jokes to be edgy, they don’t need to be disparaging toward marginalized communities — which is refreshing considering how many mainstream, male comedians take potshots at women and transgender people. Bell has enjoyed considerable commercial success: He was the host of the critically acclaimed FX series Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and is preparing to air his upcoming CNN travel show, The United Shades of America, which looks at diverse communities across the country. Unlike most of his peers in the stand-up comedy world, he uses his platform to engage a broad audience with various social justice issues. Though Bell is becoming well known nationwide, he still finds time to do small, hometown shows. He currently has a residency at The Marsh (2120 Allston Way, Berkeley) titled Home by 10, where he performs weekly stand-up routines with rotating guest comedians. A portion of the performance series’ proceeds will go to Hearts Leap Preschool in Berkeley. sold out
