W. Kamau Bell Announces Details for his ‘Oh, Everything!’ Standup Tour
Funnyman W. Kamau Bell is hitting the road this fall. Bell is currently in Southern California performing preview shows for what he’s calling his “Oh, Everything!” tour, which will officially launch on November 4 with a show at the Record Bar in Kansas City. From there, it’s on to a series of shows throughout the Midwest — taking over venues in Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan, and more. He’ll take the stage at the Sixth & I in Washington D.C. on November 22 and then head North, playing shows all the way up into New England, before turning around and playing SubCulture in New York on December 7. After taking a month off, Bell will return to the tour on January 7 with a show at Tipitina’s in New Orleans and then continue on to perform shows through the South. Bell will eventually make his way to the West Coast to play the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR, on January 21, which he’ll follow with a run through the Pacific Northwest. He’ll close out the tour at Seattle’s Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute on January 24.
Known for his jokes lampooning news and current events with plenty of pop culture references mixed in, W. Kamau Bell rose up through the San Francisco comedy scene. He gained national prominence with a comedy news talk show “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” which was produced by Chris Rock and aired first on FX and then FXX, before it was canceled after two seasons.
