1. Last year we interviewed W. Kamau Bell, host of the weekly FX series “Totally Biased" a political comedy show that’s often tackles racial issues. The show’s executive producer is Chris Rock. Rock approached Bell after seeing his one-man show called, “The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About An Hour.” 
Here is a great sketch about Sikhs he did on Totally Biased.
The second season of “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell" is starting September 4th on FXX at 11pm and will now be nightly. 
In his interview on Fresh Air he noted how his program is late night from a different angle:

I don’t look the same as the people who are on late-night TV, which means I don’t have the same life experience, which means when I look to sit down and create these pieces with the writers, I’m trying to find an angle in it that’s more personal to me.

  1. I don’t believe I can offend you in a comedy club. I don’t believe I can offend you in a concert. A comedy club is a place where you work out material, you’re trying material. Louis CK, Tosh, any of these guys, it costs $80-100 to see them. If you’re in a club, and you pay $12, and a superstar comedian comes in there trying out his jokes – you know, that’s like the first draft to a book, or a movie that’s not cut, it’s just not to be judged for the masses. This guy is trying out stuff. I think that’s the deal that’s made when you see a famous guy in one of these clubs.
