Comedian W. Kamau Bell had a very start/stop beginning in his career, as he felt his interests didn’t match what was considered “cool” for black comedians at the time. In this animated video by The Atlantic, he details how he came to terms with his own brand of comedy by actively making it inclusive, where if audience members were of different races then they received their tickets as a 2 for 1 deal. Bell’s candid discussion of what influenced him as a child should be encouraging for anyone struggling with their own place in the world.
