W. Kamau Bell is a socio-political comedian based in The People's Republic of Berkeley, CA. Kamau is the host of CNN's new travel show, The United Shades of America, which aired this past April. Kamau is best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. Kamau is also proud to be the ACLU's Ambassador of Racial Justice. Although he's pretty upset that they didn't give him a badge along with the title. Kamau sits on the advisory board of race forward, a racial justice think tank, and Hollaback, a non-profit movement to end street harassment. Kamau's special, Semi-Prominent Negro, aired on Showtime this past April.
