The Bell Curve Project: Apologies
WE ARE SOLD OUT!

If you want to see Kamau perform in the Bay Area on THIS Thursday 6/23 at 8pm go to http://www.142throckmortontheatre.com/

Welcome to The Bell Curve Project! Much like nobody saw his solo show coming, nobody will see this coming (unless you're reading this). And this time instead of just taking on Race, Kamau is taking on everything... one show at a time. "When I initially began doing The Bell Curve, I immediately realized that I enjoyed the idea behind it of taking one subject and attacking it from different angles and trying to find unique approaches to something that we all as a society had spent lots of time thinking about. I knew it didn't always have to be about race. I even did a few shows at Stage Werx where I focused on things like Black History Month and frustration. That is where I really feel like my comedic itch gets scratched."

The major difference with The Bell Curve Project is that this time Kamau is not doing it alone. He has recruited a gang of his favorite comedians, writers, producers, and even a rockstar rapper to help him out. It's like a murders' row of talent from The Bay Area and yes, even from LA and New York. They include Alex Koll (Just For Laughs Festival, Bay Area Air Guitar Champion), Kevin Camia (iTunes Top Ten Comedy CD of 2010), Kevin Kataoka (Lopez Tonight, MadTV), Chuck Sklar (Lopez Tonight & HBO's Chris Rock Show) and regular Kamau cohorts, Janine Brito (laughter Against The Machine), Nato Green (Laughter Against The Machine), and Kevin Avery (Siskel & Negro), and the original director of The W. Kamau Bell Curve, Martha Rynberg. And the rockstar rapper / activist / Bay Area legend himself, founder of The Coup and co-founder of Street Sweeper Social Club, Boots Riley. The Bell Curve Project will be a hybrid of a diatribe, video clips and segments, talk show elements, sketch comedy, and a good old-fashioned Kamau show. Special guests TBA.

So Kamau is going back to Stage Werx, the theater where he performed The Bell Curve for the first time, and this time he and his LA, New York, and Bay Area friends are taking on the subject of... Apologies. Why do we make so many of them? Do they mean anything anymore? What makes a good one? What makes a bad one? What are the most famous ones? Who still owes us one? How can we all get better at them?

"I know nobody is expecting me to take on apologies after four years of taking on racism, but apologies are as embedded and loaded in society as racism is. Literally everyday they are in the news, either because somebody makes one or somebody needs to make one: politicians, actors, actors who are politicians."
