The Bell Curve: Apologies - TV Pilot Taping
Welcome to "The Bell Curve!" Stand-up comedian W. Kamau Bell is known for his solo comedy show, "The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour." Well after four years of ending racism, Kamau has decided he is ready to take on something new. In fact he's going to take on everything else... one show at a time. "When I initially began doing The Bell Curve, I immediately realized that I enjoyed the idea of taking one subject, attacking it from different angles, and trying to find unique approaches to something that we as a society spend lots of time thinking about. I knew it didn't always have to be about race. I even did a few solo shows 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 between the new version of "The Bell Curve" and the old one is that this time Kamau is not doing it alone. He has recruited a gang of his favorite comedians, writers, and occasionally musicians to help him out. This special show includes Hari Kondabolu (Comedy Central), Marc Maron (WTF with Marc Maron), John Ennis (Mr. Show), Chuck Sklar (The Chris Rock Show, Lopez Tonight), fellow "Laughter Against the Machine" comics Nato Green and Janine Brito, and other special guests TBA. 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.

Kamau debuted an early version of this show back on July in San Francisco and is excited to bring it to Los Angeles for a pilot taping at The Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica on November 4 at 7 and 9pm.

For the taping, Kamau and his gang 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."
