Three More Weeks of Stand-up from
W. Kamau Bell!

Thursdays Through July 30 |
July 31 – August 22, 2015 | Berkeley
Fridays at 8pm | Saturdays 8:30pm


One of America’s top socio-political comedians, W. Kamau Bell has been back in the Bay Area for more than six months now, but there’s a problem: He doesn’t get out that much. Between being a road warrior for comedy, and filming for his upcoming CNN show, The United Shades of America, Kamau just wants to be with his family, catching up with episodes of Shark Tank and sleep. With a 4 year-old and a 7-month-year old baby, the sleep part isn’t happening.

The Berkeley Marsh is pleased to announce that Kamau will continue doing his summer residency in their Cabaret Theater on Friday and Saturday nights. Kamau will be drawing hot-off-the-press material from today’s headlines (or copy and pasting from clickbait)…or he might just complain about changing diapers.
