EMMY(TM)-WINNING COMEDIAN BRIAN MCCANN JOINS "TOTALLY BIASED" AS PRODUCER AND WRITER

New York, NY - June 13, 2013 - Emmy(TM) Award-winning writer Brian McCann (Late Night with Conan O'Brien) has joined Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell as a Producer and Writer.

"In 1995 my Chicago Bulls knew they were one piece away from a championship. They shocked the world by acquiring Dennis Rodman, best known for his incredible rebounding, his will to win, and unpredictability," said Bell. "Totally Biased has just acquired Brian McCann, best known for his incredible run with Conan O'Brien, his will to get laughter at any cost, and his unpredictability. He is our Dennis Rodman. We are now ready to win."

"I couldn't be more excited to round out the diverse and talented staff at Totally Biased by supplying the rare 'Irish White guy' voice so often ignored in late night," said McCann.

For 17 years, Brian McCann was an Emmy Award-winning writer and performer on Conan O'Brien, and was instrumental in the development of NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, and Conan on TBS. He is also the winner of six Writers Guild awards for outstanding comedy writing.

Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, 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 is a mix of Bell's commentary, live guests, sketch comedy and taped segments. A half-hour series, Totally Biased is produced by FX Productions and is shot in New York City before a live studio audience.

This July, W. Kamau Bell and writers from Totally Biased will unleash the 10-city Totally Biased Stand Up Tour with W. Kamau Bell. The tour is a prelude to the September unveiling of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell as a nightly strip on the new channel, FXX. Tour details can be found online at http://www.fxnetworks.com/totallybiased/tour.

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," Bell 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.
