W. Kamau Bell is finally returning to TV to do what he was doing before he was on TV: touring the country to talk to the people, wherever they may be, about the issues that are affecting them all under the umbrella of comedy.
CNN has announced their upcoming programming slate and on it is United Shades of America that will be hosted by W. Kamau Bell. Bell will go far and wide across the land and get into whatever subcultures he can. This is sort of what Kamau was doing on his Laughter Against the Machine tour before he got to host the far-too-short-lived Totally Biased at FX/FXx.
For once, it’ll be nice to see a show on CNN probably not end up on The Daily Show to be poked fun at.
