Hari Kondabolu's Tumblr Kingdom

This “web exclusive” video I did for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell is definitely my proudest achievement of 2012. The piece is framed as being about Mindy Kaling’s new Fox TV show, but it’s really a breakdown of the history of Indian representation in popular culture and how much progress we’ve made. My main fear when writing the script was that it would come off as corny since I’ve talked about a lot of this stuff with friends since I was 16 years old. However, I eventually realized that, though it might be old to brown people, it’s never really been said publicly. South Asians being allowed to share their opinions (or even talk) in the American mainstream is a fairly new concept.  Though I was unable to nail Fisher Stevens’ “Short Circuit” character due to time, I was happy to finally address Hank Azaria and Apu from The Simpsons. Amazingly, it appears Hank saw it: https://twitter.com/harikondabolu/status/273536685306966017
