A fearless political comedian, Hari Kondabolu tackles social issues in the confrontational spirit of Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor, with a voice all his own. Based in Brooklyn and raised in Queens, the New York Times has called him “one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today.” In March 2014, he released his debut standup album “Waiting for 2042″ on indie-label Kill Rock Stars. He is currently NYU’s APA Institute’s “Artist in Residence” for the 2014-2015 Academic Year.
Hari has done standup on the Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live at Gotham, and John Oliver’s New York Standup Show. His Comedy Central Presents half-hour television special debuted on the network in February 2011. He was also a writer and correspondent for the Chris Rock-produced Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX. In 2014, he was interviewed on Fresh Air with Terry Gross on NPR. A regular on the public radio circuit, he has also appeared on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Studio 360, Bullseye, and Soundcheck. He has also appeared on popular podcasts like WTF with Marc Maron, You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes, and Too Beautiful to Live with Luke Burbank.
