HARI KONDABOLU'S ALBUM RELEASE IN BOSTON
April 1, 2014 | Tickets: $15 ($20 At The Door)
2 Shows: 7:30pm & 9:30pm
To mark the release of his debut album WAITING FOR 2042 on indie label KILL ROCK STARS, Hari Kondabolu will be doing two shows at Improv Boston on Tuesday, April 1st. The album, which was recorded live at the New Parish in Oakland, CA, includes material about white Jesus, eating the rich, Matthew McConaughey, socially conscious time travel and how 90s alternative rock band Weezer broke his heart. Watch album track "2042 and the White Minority" here:
Praised by NPR as "a brainy comedian who cuts through the polite talk around race and gender," Hari was discovered in 2006 by the HBO Comedy Festival while working as an immigrant rights organizer in Seattle. Now Brooklyn-based, he was most recently a writer and correspondent for the Chris Rock-produced Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on the FX network. He has also made appearances on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver's New York Standup Show and has his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents special. Hari has also performed at such notable festivals as South by Southwest, Bumbershoot, Sasquatch, The Edinburgh Fringe and Just for Laughs in Montreal and Chicago.
"A national comedy treasure" - The Stranger
"Hari Kondabolu is intelligent, insightful and hilarious - a true comic genius." -Margaret Cho
"Hari Kondabolu is the comedy equivalent of a punk rock concert that breaks out at a human right's rally. He is a truly inspirational performer who is ahead of his time and is grabbing us by the lapels to catch up with him" - W Kamau Bell
"This incorrigibly smart, rising comic exhibits a duality in his act that doesn't seem quite plausible: He's both political and funŠ[and] deals in calmly reasoned polemics." - Time Out New York
"A young man reaching for the hand-scalding torch of confrontational comics like Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor." The Seattle Times
"It is a common fault in Human Nature that the unseen and unknown provoke excessive confidence or excessive fear, and so it happened on this occasion: Track #7, Hari Kondabolu's willfully ignorant assessment of Weezer." Gaius Julius Casesar (with additional commentary by Janeane Garofalo)
