Comedian W. Kamau Bell headlines The Punch Line for TONITE, November 26. Kamau was recently honored as the 2008 Bay Area Comedian of the Year by the San Francisco Weekly. His television appearances include Comics Unleashed and Comedy Central. In 2005 he was chosen to appear at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and was the only comedian invited to perform on both The New Faces Show and The Best of The Uptown Comics Show. As a writer he was featured in the book “What Would Bill Hicks Say?” Kamau has been heard on radio station Live 105, and online at Roof Top Comedy as half of the rant and rave team, “Siskel and Negro”. He has been profiled in The San Francisco Chronicle on four different occasions, including not ironically during Black History Month and the day after the election of Barak Obama. The SF Weekly called him, “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle and Margaret Cho”, although he was more excited that they called him “handsome”. Kamau is also the co-founder of the Solo Performance Workshop.
