This is absolutely one of the best shows on right now. Here's what sets it apart from from most other political-comedy fare:
"To use a gag-worthy phrase, Bell's gimmick is intersectional progressivism: he treats racial, gay, and women's issues as inseparable. That may not sound hilarious, but when it works it grants him new routes into old topics. In one guest bit, he and the black lesbian comic Wanda Sykes bonded over having white wives. Like Fallon, Bell has a nice-guy vibe, which lends his show the air of a laid-back, welcoming party: when he mistook a sexually ambiguous Comic-Con attendee for a woman, the label "Replay of Shame" appeared over a slo-mo clip--but, refreshingly, the joke was on him, not on the interviewee."
But it's so much more than just that. It refreshing to see a host that's as nerdy as me (plus family and friends) with a sharp wit, taking a jab at topics that normally cause anger. You can relate to him if you've ever felt yourself marginalized in society and you're as committed to all areas of equality for your fellow citizens. Totally Biased helps you let of some steam so you can get down to the nitty gritty and get the hard work rolling.
