More new episodes of “Totally Biased” are coming on Jan. 17th, and we’ll be happy to count Emily Nussbaum from “The New Yorker” among our viewers. She recently wrote this article on Kamau and the current late night television landscape and had these kind words to say:

“Bell’s show works because, in the hip precincts of FX, he can simply take black culture as the show’s default, the way network shows presume white culture. “There are actually more black ‘Seinfeld’ fans than there are black Kwanzaa fans,” Bell argued, in one bit. “I only know like a handful of people who do it, and two of them are white lesbians with black kids.” To use a gag-worthy phrase, Bell’s gimmick is intersectional progressivism: he treats racial, gay, and women’s issues as inseparable. That may not sound hilarious, but when it works it grants him new routes into old topics.”

We’ll be back in the office in about two weeks so hopefully this hasn’t gone to Kamau’s head—between this and Salon recently declaring him one of 2012′s sexiest men, Kamau could go “diva” any day now…
