COMEDIAN DAVID ALAN GRIER JOINS W. KAMAU BELL ON "TOTALLY BIASED"

Thursday, February 7 at 11:00PM ET/PT

New York, NY - February 5, 2013 - W. Kamau Bell welcomes comedy icon David Alan Grier as his guest this Thursday, February 7 @ 11:00pm ET/PT on an all-new episode of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

David Alan Grier is currently nominated for a 2013 Grammy award for the cast recording of The Gershwins' "Porgy & Bess." In 2009/2010 Grier starred in David Mamet's acclaimed play "Race" opposite James Spader and Kerry Washington at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway for which he received his second Tony Award-nomination. He was previously nominated for Best Featured Actor in a Musical and won the Theatre World Award for "The First," and drew acclaim for his stage performances in "Dreamgirls," "A Soldier's Play," and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." His television work is highlighted by a turn as principal cast member on the Emmy Award-winning In Living Color (1990-1994) where he helped to create some of the show's most memorable characters; DAG (2000-2001); and Life with Bonnie (2003) which earned an Image and Golden Satellite nomination. Grier also created, wrote and executive produced a show for Comedy Central called Chocolate News (2008). In 2013, he will appear in We the Peeples, produced by Tyler Perry, opposite Kerry Washington and Craig Robinson. Grier received an MFA from the Yale School of Drama.

Grier is the latest in a growing roster of stars who have visited Totally Biased to share their views, including George Takei, Wanda Sykes, John Oliver, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and journalists Rachel Maddow, Matt Taibbi and Dave Zirin.

Totally Biased, from Bell and Executive Producers Chris Rock, Chuck Sklar and Keri Smith Esguia, stars standup comedian W. Kamau Bell as he hilariously dissects politics, pop culture, race, religion, sex and the media from his own unique point of view. The show features live guests and taped segments. The show is produced by FX Productions.

W. Kamau Bell, recently declared by The New York Times to be "the most promising talent in political comedy in many years," is one of the fastest rising socio-political comics in the United States. A founding member of the stand-up comedy collective "Laughter Against the Machine," Kamau is also co-host of The Field Negro Guide to Arts & Culture podcast with Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid. His recent stand up album, Face Full of Flour, was named one of the Top 10 Best Comedy Albums of 2010 by iTunes and Punchline Magazine. Bell is best known for his critically acclaimed solo show "The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour," which was a Time Out New York Critic's Pick in the 2010 NY Comedy Festival, and a comedy pick in The Guardian during its 2011 run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In December, Bell will be touring the country with his new stand up show, "The Kamau Mau Uprising."
