ImprovBoston Presents Hari Kondabolu
April 1, 2014
To mark the release of his debut album WAITING FOR 2042 on indie label KILL ROCK STARS, Hari Kondabolu will be doing two shows at Improv Boston on Tuesday, April 1st. The album, which was recorded live at the New Parish in Oakland, CA, includes material about white Jesus, eating the rich, Matthew McConaughey, socially conscious time travel and how 90s alternative rock band Weezer broke his heart.
Praised by NPR as "a brainy comedian who cuts through the polite talk around race and gender," Hari was discovered in 2006 by the HBO Comedy Festival while working as an immigrant rights organizer in Seattle. Now Brooklyn-based, he was most recently a writer and correspondent for the Chris Rock-produced Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on the FX network. He has also made appearances on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver's New York Standup Show and has his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents special. Hari has also performed at such notable festivals as South by Southwest, Bumbershoot, Sasquatch, The Edinburgh Fringe and Just for Laughs in Montreal and Chicago.
