Kamau Right Now!
W. Kamau Bell is back in the Bay Area with 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 August 17th, Kamau and friends will take the stage at Laney College's Odell Johnson Theater. Helping Kamau solve the world's problems are founder of Feminist Frequency Anita Sarkeesian, comedian Irene Tu, and actor/activist Danny Glover.
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.
