W. Kamau Bell, host of FX's "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell," said he is trying to get more comfortable as the star of the late-night entry.
"I'm still in the learning curve," he said during a session for the FX series at the winter Television Critics Assn. press tour. "Nobody is born to be a talk show host."
Injected executive producer Chrs Rock: "Regis."
Bell laughed. "OK, there's Regis. It's a bunch of separate skills."
He said he's getting the most help in the area from Rock, who is not only a veteran comedian but also has also hosted a late-night talk show. The two talk frequently about current events and the topics that the show tackles.
Rock said, "I'm trying to get him out of his young comic head, and to embrace comedy as a whole. I'm also trying him in other ways. Having a show like this is like being a CEO. I'm trying to get him to be a good boss."
