W. Kamau Bell dusts himself off, heads out on tour

W. Kamau Bell dusts himself off, heads out on tour

In what a press release euphemistically describes as “fresh off the heels of Kamau’s critically acclaimed half-hour FX/FXX late-night comedy series Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell”—“fresh of the cancellation of Totally Biased” would’ve been too much of a bummer—W. Kamau Bell is heading out on a small tour next month. The Oh, Everything! tour hits six cities beginning in mid-March, ending with an appearance at the South Beach Comedy Festival in Miami.

FXX canceled Bell’s much-lauded but little-watched show last November. Deadline estimated at the time that as few as 12,000 people were tuning in, which meant not even the imprimatur of executive producer Chris Rock was enough to spare it from the ax.

A fan-club presale for the tour began yesterday through wkamaubell.com, and tickets for the general public go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Pacific. They’re available through Bell’s website as well. The full list of dates is below.
