Following the short-lived Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX, the political comedian and podcaster rebounded with United Shades of America, his recently renewed, Emmy-nominated docu-series on CNN that follows Bell cross country as he explores various subcultures and racial and social issues, from the KKK in the South to hipsters in Portland to inmates at San Quentin. Earlier this year, Bell also starred in his first stand-up special, W. Kamau Bell: Semi-Prominent Negro. Filmed in Brooklyn and directed by Morgan Spurlock, the Berkeley-based Bell riffed on raising biracial children, the difference between liberalism in the Bay Area and New York and gentrification. He also joked about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, whom he likened to “a nagging cough that’s turned into full-blown AIDS.” Grammy Foundation and MusiCares vice president Scott Goldman moderates this discussion with Spurlock and Bell, who also performs.
