Hari Kondabolu's Tumblr Kingdom

I’m happy to announce that my debut comedy album “Waiting for 2042” has been in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Comedy Chart for a month now. (Debuting at #3 and currently at #10). Considering this is my first album and it came out on indie label Kill Rock Stars, I’m extremely excited and grateful. Thank you all for making this a really special time!

Terry: You have a masters in human rights from the London School of Economics?

Hari: Yeah, I wasted a lot of money before I decided to do stand-up full time, Terry. 

Hari Kondabolu (pronounced “hurry”) is going to be on the show soon! We wanted to give you a sneak peek at his stand-up. 

His new comedy album is called Waiting For 2042

This interview I did with Anshuman Iddamsetty for Hazlitt’s ”The Arcade” podcast is one of the best I’ve ever done. Honestly, it sounds BEAUTIFUL. We talk about growing up South Asian, Apu, and how I went from an immigrant rights organizer to a professional standup comedian.

Hari Kondabolu appears on “Good Day NY” on Fox 5  on and soon discovers race is even more difficult to discuss on morning television. Aired on April 9th, 2014.

Today, Rand Paul ONCE AGAIN mentioned the “Make Chai, Not War" tour I was on in a Senate hearing! Even though the tour was 2 YEARS AGO, he and Secretary of State John Kerry had a conversation about it. SEE FOR YOURSELF: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br5_VqEPPJM. Again, my reply is the same as ABOVE from Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

Hari Kondabolu on the Late Show with David Letterman. I think I might be the first standup comic to say “race is a social construct” on late night television.

Hey Kids! I’m on The Late Show with DAVID LETTERMAN tonight (3/26) at 1130 pm on CBS.
