KALW Presents: Kamau Right Now!
W. Kamau Bell is back in the Bay Area and ready to kick off season 2 of his live public radio show/podcast Kamau Right Now! Kamau aims to create a "three ring circus of relevance" as he and his guests and a live audience try to figure out what is going on right now. There will be provocative conversation and awkward talks. There will be respectful debates. There will be much laughter (and probably a few hugs, too).
On May 18th, Kamau and friends will take stage at historic Bayview Opera House in San Francisco. Helping Kamau figure out what the hell is happening "right now" will be comedian Natasha Muse, activist Cat Brooks, and author Jeff Chang. Music by Mino Yanci!!
In 2016, the East Bay Express deemed the Kamau Right Now! podcast "Best in the east bay".
About W. Kamau Bell: W. Kamau Bell is a sociopolitical comedian who is the host of the Emmy Award nominated, hit CNN docu-series, United Shades of America.
