Comedian Hari Kondabolu Brings His Sharp Political Commentary To Sacramento

Political comedian Hari Kondabolu is known by many as one of the sharpest and funniest voices in the United States.

His newest album “Mainstream American Comic” followed on the success of “Waiting for 2042” with comedy on topics ranging from current affairs and race relations to his immigrant parents.

Hari spoke with Nick Brunner before his run of shows at the Sacramento Punch Line. You can hear part of their conversation on Insight, and the rest of it on Hey, Listen!

You can listen to his "Fresh Air with Terry Gross" interview from 2014 here.
