Hari Kondabolu

Sometimes, Hari Kondabolu’s comedy feels less like a series of jokes and more like a super-informed rant from a friend who Gets It. And that’s not a bad thing. Kondabolu — we can’t write this blurb without mentioning he’s also the brother of Das Racist’s Dapwell, so we’ll just do that here — worked as a writer on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, which makes perfect sense given his preoccupation with social justice in his routines. (That focus may also explain why he’s Tumblr’s favorite comedian.) He’s putting out his debut comedy album, Waiting for 2042, this March.
