ABOUT HARI KONDABOLU
The NY Times has called Hari Kondabolu “one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today” and described his Netflix special Warn Your Relatives as “an incisively funny and formally adventurous hour that reveals a comic in command of his powers.” In 2017, his truTV documentary The Problem with Apu was released to critical acclaim and spurred a global conversation about race and representation. The Nation called it “a devastating critique of the ultimate comedic sacred cow: The Simpsons.” It is now used in high school, college and grad school curriculums around the US.
Hari is a former writer & correspondent on the much loved, Chris Rock produced FX show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. He attended both Bowdoin College and Wesleyan University with a B.A. in Comparative Politics. A former immigrant rights organizer in Seattle who worked under the leadership of now-Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Hari also earned a Masters in Human Rights from the London School of Economics in 2008. He was the Artist In Residence at NYU’s APA Institute for the 2014-2015 Academic Year and at Shangri La Museum in Honolulu in 2018.
