Comedian W. Kamau Bell and The Bell Curve

24 Aug

Funnyman and race-guru W. Kamau Bell is doing his thing this month at the New York Fringe Festival with his show “The Bell Curve”. From the site:

Just like skinny jeans, superhero movies, and frozen yogurt, racism continues to make a comeback. In 2007, The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About An Hour opened big and came out swinging against big targets. But two short years later, America has amazingly elected the first black president… of the Republican National Committee — Michael Steele. Oh, and also we elected, as president of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama. All this MUST mean racism is over. We’re officially in Post-Racial America… Right?… Right?

Want a preview of the show? Of course you do:

Check out an interview with W. Kamau Bell, in which he speaks about President Obama being such a great thing for his act, after the jump.
