The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell

Submitted by kingsbookstore on Wed, 05/24/2017 - 7:15pm

This review relates to the Audiobook copy, which is available through our partner, Libro.fm.  Listening to W. Kamau Bell's reflect on his life - from childhood times when his mom let him use pre-ripped, too small clothes to Hulk out of to awkward moments bombing during stand-up was made even better by his dry delivery.  Don't worry if you think you won't relate because you aren't a 6' 4", African American, Heterosexual, Cisgender, Left-Leaning, Asthmatic, Black and Proud Blerd, Mama's Boy, Dad, and Stand-Up Comedian like Bell.  There were many times when I identified with his "awkward thoughts" (case in point: while playing sports, "Whose idea was this?  When can we stop?  Where can I stand where the ball won't come to me??!), and even when I didn't relate, the material was still laugh-out-loud funny! - Lydia
