TV Preview: Totally Biased by Kamau Bell

So through I was made aware of an unusual comedian named Kamau Bell who has a new show on FX called "Totally Biased". The show and Kamau's humor were presented as being similar to the Chris Rock Show and not shying away from any topic. Chris Rock, by the way, is the executive producer of Totally Biased.

So on 8/9, some friends and I watched the premier episode. The show comes on at 11PM, so late enough that the kids can be in bed, but early enough for us adults to still be able to enjoy a comedy show that requires your attention. Because attention Kamau requires. Fast-speaking and covering a multitude of topics, Kamau does not give the viewer a lot of rest.

Let me be clear. The comedian and the show do not strive to be politically correct. You know where Kamau stands on every topic he covers. You do not agree with him, too bad, he will just move on! He interchanges taped pieces on topics that interest him with live studio pieces, not giving the viewer much rest.

He does not pull any punches and not all people will agree with him and most viewers will certainly find something to disagree with him and even be mad at him for some of his opinions. But that's okay because Kamau got plenty of things to be mad about himself and so you can join the club of people being mad about something.
There are plenty of videos with scenes from Totally Biased on youtube. I picked this one because is it fairly safe in terms of language and covered topic.
