Hari Kondabolu is a comedian, writer, and podcaster based in Brooklyn. The New York Times called him 'one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today' and described his 2018 Netflix special "Warn Your Relatives" as 'an incisively funny and formally adventurous hour that reveals a comic in command of his powers.' The special was listed on many 'Best Of' lists, including for Time, Paste Magazine, Cosmopolitan, E! Online, and Mashable. He was also named one of 2018’s 'Comics To Watch' by Variety. In 2017, his truTV documentary "The Problem with Apu" was released to critical acclaim and spurred a global conversation about race and representation.
Hari has also released two comedy albums, "Waiting for 2042" and "Mainstream American Comic" with legendary indie rock label Kill Rock Stars. Additionally, he has performed on such shows as "CONAN," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," and "The Late Show with David Letterman," among many others. He was also a writer & correspondent on the much loved Chris Rock produced FX show, "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell." A regular on the public radio, Hari is a panelist on the NPR game show "Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me." As a podcaster, he co-hosted the popular "Politically Reactive" with dear friend W. Kamau Bell. Additionally, he also co-hosts what he politely describes as a 'pop up podcast,' "The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Podcast" with his younger brother Ashok ('Dap' from HBO’s "Chillin’ Island" and defunct rap group "Das Racist"). Hari is former immigrant rights organizer in Seattle who worked under the leadership of now Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal.
