The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour!
WE ARE SOLD OUT FOR THE JANUARY 24th SHOW.

If you would like to be put on the waiting list for the January 24th show, please E-mail thewkbbellcuve@yahoo.com.

JUST LIKE THE SPICE GIRLS, skinny jeans, and The Boston Celtics, racism is making a comeback in America. Every time you turn around, a white celebrity is talking about un-white people in ways that haven't been popular since Martin Luther King had a dream. Well, W. Kamau Bell is mad as hell and he's not going smile politely anymore as his un-black friends go, "Was what Imus said really THAT big a deal?" "The W. Kamau Bell Curve" is one part diatribe, one part manifesto, and several parts funny. And it wouldn't exist without Sarah Silverman's "Jesus is Magic", Michael Richards' "N Word Blowout", Don Imus' "Nappy Headed Hos", Rosie O'Donnell's "Ching ching chong ching...", DNA Co-Discoverer, James Watson's "Don't Hire Black people!", everythng that has ever come out of Ann Coulter's mouth, Dog "The N Word Slinger", and the next dumbass, uninformed celebrity who says something incredibly and unapologetically racist.

BAY AREA GUITAR PHENOM PAUL E. HUNT and his
funk-rock-soul band Conjure opens each show and will
feature different guest musicians each night.

AS A STAND-UP COMIC, W. KAMAU BELL has frequently opened for Dave Chappelle in San Francisco and around the country. He has appeared on TV on Comedy Central and Comics Unleashed. Locally, Kamau has been profiled in The San Francisco Chronicle on three different occasions, including not ironically during Black History Month. The SF Weekly called him, "smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle and Margaret Cho", although he was more excited that they called him "handsome". He is most proud of being the leader of The Solo Performance Workshop at The Shelton Theater, where he is also an Artist in Residence.
