The Comical Son Returns


Bay Area comedy fans may remember the many happy years comedian and Rumpus Radio guest W. Kamau Bell spent in San Francisco before moving to New York for his TV show Totally Biased.

The good news is: the show is terrific, using goofy riffs and person-on-the-street interviews to highlight the absurdities of political and social issues.

The other good news is: Bell is coming back to the Bay to do two shows in the Mission this weekend. Tickets are only $15, so get ’em while you can.
