Critics Consensus

W. Kamau Bell's affable charisma makes Private School Negro a mirthful dissection of modern America, although although seasoned fans may find the material a bit familiar.

  • If you're looking for a progressive echo chamber, you won't find it in this thoughtful special. Private School Negro is full of rightful criticism, but it's also compassionate.

  • Sadly, the moments of focus and purpose are fleeting, and Bell squanders too much of his time on dated talking points and extraneous anecdotes.

    December 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • [Bell's] stand-up was never dense with punch lines, but "Private School Negro" veers further from a tight club set, toward a mix of storytelling, jokes and arguments. It's a rambling, sometimes overly familiar hour.

    December 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Bell flexes the same genial, conversational style seen during his far-flung interview segments for "United Shades" and stretches out on topics from the current political climate to his perspective on race and gender relationships.

    December 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A timely, energetic set that covers politics, racism, parenting, TV, and, in one of the stories he shares in Private School Negro, watching political TV coverage about a racist while parenting.

  • The TV host and podcaster has always been skilled at finding the comic absurdity in darkness, but it's the moving way he talks about searching for hope that really makes this hour resonate.
