Hari Kondabolu is known as a political comedian, born and raised in Queens, New York.  His fans and fellow comics around the world count him as one of the sharpest and funniest voices in the U.S. He’s also an actor, filmmaker, activist and podcast host. He’s performed on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Late Show with David Letterman, and the FX series “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.”

Capital Public Radio’s Nick Brunner spoke with Kondabolu in March 2017 about his Simpsons documentary, making political comedy during the Trump Administration, and his podcast. 

His latest comedy special “Warn Your Relatives” is available on Netflix. You can find his comedy albums on the indie label Kill Rock Stars.
