This dude was awesome! I would highly reccommend this show to anyone. This show was worth much more than what we paid.

Not ready for public performance. Very few thought-provoking insights about race, and many more superficial one, often drawing specious conclusions from selective data. There were some sharp, funny moments that demonstrated Kamau's potential. I...continued

Bell is topical, edgy, honest and funny. He really connected with the audience. Plus the opening band Conjure rocked -- a nice bonus.

This is the third time I've seen this excellent show and each time, it's a new show. Kamau keeps it fresh and topical but always personal. It's no mistake that he was crowned 2008 Comedian of the Year by SF Weekly!

Funny show in a much smaller and more intimate theatre than I expected. I think fans of interactive comedy will really enjoy this show. It was very different than the Dave Chappelle show I saw a few weeks ago where although it was generally...continued

Good clean fun that shows depths of personality and class that only Kamau has been able to bring to comedy. We laughed at all the races including my own, but not once was I offended or turned off because Kamau tells it like it is--the bare truth...continued

Kamau is hella funny, and he has a sharp cultural consciousness. This show was a pleasure to attend, because his comedy did not simply make fun of Black culture; instead, he used his wit to educate and elevate his audience. Kamau's Bell Curve is...continued

This was my second time watching the W Kamau Bell Curve and I was expecting the same show that I'd seen 6 months ago. I was surprised however that Kamau had changed about 90% of his material. The show is constantly evolving, integrating current...continued
