PRIVATE SCHOOL NEGRO is now available for streaming globally on NETFLIX. Praised as “one of the modern era’s most politically astute stand-up comics” (The New York Times), Bell delivers nonstop laughs as he sounds off on the current presidential administration, racism in America, parenting mixed race daughters, and what it would be like if Michelle Obama still had a job in the White House. It’s been hailed as “a lively, energetic set” (The AV Club), “as enlightening as it is funny” (Metro US), and “a titular sequel to Semi-Prominent Negro” (Forbes).
