With the news that W. Kamau Bell’s Totally Biased will began airing 5-nights-a-week, writer KA Sleeth is excited about the possibility of getting picked up by the Totally Biased staff.
Sleeth claims that he loves black people and fancies himself the world’s foremost expert on civil rights legend/comic Dick Gregory.
“I’ve been sending Bell messages through Facebook. I can see that he reads them. I think he likes me but doesn’t trust Facebook.”
Bell could not be reached for comment as of this deadline, but sources tell Scab the ‘Verse that Sleeth could be called up from the internet at any time.
An anonymous source at FX explained: “These ex-trolls are some of the finest minds on the planet. We’re trying to get them to come out of the woodwork. I don’t even think we’d have to pay most of them.”
Sleeth, a former teacher, explains his methodology behind looking for work at Totally Biased: “There are a lot of bloggers and internet folk that do free public relations for pop culture. Without us, there’s nothing popping about the culture. So I’d like to be the first ex-troll to come out from the shadows. I brought Dick Gregory to the white suburbs. Many people know the brother because of the fact that I have a computer. Real talk.”
Executive Producer Chris Rock, when asked about the notion of a writer getting called up from the minors to cable television, said it’s a whole new ballgame. “Do you really think this quote is from Chris Rock? This guy Sleeth is probably just some jackass with a keyboard. I probably didn’t even say this.”
One of Sleeth’s jokes makes a play on Bell’s name:
“The first time I heard “W. Kamau Bell”, I thought, is that a Hawaiian phone company?”
The joke didn’t go over too well with Bell’s brother-in-law’s gardner: “Was he referring to Pacific Bell? Are they even relevant anymore? Maybe he should mix in some jokes about pagers and VHS tapes. The kids love that stuff.”
While not all of his jokes work, Sleeth claims to be an expert on internet culture and multi-generational relations. He has held the number one spot on Reddit (like President Obama) and currently owns many books written by black authors.
As it stands, Sleeth is hopeful that his history of internet commentary will land him a full time writing position with Totally Biased. Like Frank Cushman said in Jerry Maguire ‘I just want to play football’ — for Sleeth, he just wants to write comedy.
