Quotes & Highlights

“Avery is amazing!” —San Francisco Chronicle
“W. Kamau Bell is the most important guy doing comedy right now. Do yourself a favor and go see him. He’s got the most astute, hilarious and completely righteous material going and he’s going to be a legend in his own lifetime like Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce. Think Bill Hicks but slightly taller.” —Margaret Cho

He was named Best Comedian by the SF Weekly in 2008, and this year he was just voted Best Comedian by “SF Bay Guardian” readers and the editors of “7×7 Magazine”. Hailed as “one of our country’s most adept racial commentators” by Punchline Magazine, Kamau recently performed at this year’s Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where his set was filmed for air on HBO Canada.
