W. Kamau Bell is a Bay Area legend, whether or not he’ll ever admit it.
The stand-up comic and host of CNN’s United Shades of America has come a long way from doing the Sunday night showcase at the Punchline Comedy Club in San Francisco. The now internationally respected comic has been a mainstay on TV for the past several years, but is now really hitting his stride with the Emmy-winning United Shades of America now entering it’s 4th season.
Kamau stopped by the KFOG studios today to chat about the new season, go in-depth on what he learned in the first episode about the influence of megachurches, and what Anthony Bourdain taught him about having his own TV show.
Listen to the full interview below and make sure to catch United Shades of America every Sunday night at 7pm and 10pm on CNN
