A Conversation with Morgan Spurlock & W. Kamau Bell

Buy Tickets

The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome acclaimed filmmaker and satirist Morgan Spurlock to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on his lifelong love of comedy and the genesis of W. Kamau Bell: Semi-Prominent Negro — the hour-long TV comedy special that premiered on Showtime earlier this year. Written by keenly observant comedian W. Kamau Bell and directed by Spurlock, the special is a unique TV experience filled with savvy socio-political commentary and marks the first stand-up comedy special for socio-political comedian and host of the Emmy-nominated show “United Shades of America”  W. Kamau Bell. Filmed in Brooklyn, N.Y., Semi-Prominent Negro features Bell’s characteristically biting and perceptive take on relevant issues of contemporary America while highlighting its shortcomings. The conversation will be followed by a special performance from Bell, and a Q&A with Spurlock and Bell on how they got the idea to create the series while at CNN. The evening will be hosted by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares.
