Kamau Right Now!

At Oakland Impact Hub.

Local comic W. Kamau Bell’s specialty is incisive political comedy. And when it comes to political correctness, he manages to jab at both the offenders and the offended with a friendly ease. Best known for his short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, Bell’s next project is the upcoming CNN travel series The United Shades of America. But in the Bay, we often have the pleasure of seeing Bell live (although his stand-up shows always sell out quickly). The next opportunity will be at the Oakland Impact Hub (2323 Broadway) on March 17 for the taping of Kamau Right Now!, a new radio series on KALW that will air at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. On the 17th, Bell’s guests will be activist Lateefah Simon, journalist and hip-hop historian Davey D., comedian and poet Bucky Sinister, and Oakland’s Mayor Libby Schaaf.
