According to the Seattle Times, Hari Kondabolu is “a young man reaching for the hand-scalding torch of confrontational comics like Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor.” Like his comedic heroes, Hari Kondabolu wants to speak truth to power with confrontational and personal material. Unlike them, he does not want to die of a morphine overdose or set himself on fire.
Hari has performed on
Jimmy Kimmel Live
, Comedy Central’s
Live at Gotham
John Oliver’s New York Standup Show
and the 2007 HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. His

with his younger brother Ashok (“Dap” from hip hop group Das Racist) in New York City.
