Laughter Against The Machine came together in the back of a comedy show in 2008 during a discussion among Nato, Kamau, and Hari about seeking new audiences for their material. Having collaborated on several successful Bay Area political comedy shows, they wanted to put on an issue-oriented, topical comedy show constructed of truly impassioned material to attract the thoughtful, dauntless, urban, and urbane audiences that they knew were out there. They wanted the comedians and the audience to show up understanding that they would both be challenged, where the audience could be entertained and think at the same time, and where the comedians would promise to push themselves to places comics normally fear to tread. They also wanted it to be hilarious. Hari, Nato, and Kamau wanted a comedy show with no preconceived expectations, no party lines, and certainly no cheerleading, because these three have beef with everybody, including themselves.
