As Caitlin M. Boston let us know last month, comedian and podcaster W. Kamau Bell is about to make the jump to television with his upcoming show, Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell, which will debut on FX at 11 p.m. on Aug. 9
Well, if you’re a Racializen in New York City Thursday June 7, you can be there for the show’s first taping!
We’ve got ten (10) tickets to give away so, as they say on the radio, the first 10 readers (who are at least 18 years of age) to drop me a line at email@example.com will get the hook-up.
