Local comic W. Kamau Bell’s specialty is incisive political comedy. And when it comes to political correctness, he manages to jab at both the offenders and the offended with a friendly ease. Best known for his short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell
, Bell’s next project is the upcoming CNN travel series The United Shades of America
. But in the Bay, we often have the pleasure of seeing Bell live (although his stand-up shows always sell out quickly). The next opportunity will be at the Oakland Impact Hub (2323 Broadway) on March 17 for the taping of Kamau Right Now!
, a new radio series on KALW that will air at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. On the 17th, Bell’s guests will be activist Lateefah Simon, journalist and hip-hop historian Davey D., comedian and poet Bucky Sinister, and Oakland’s Mayor Libby Schaaf.
