Hari Kondabolu is a Brooklyn-based comedian, who takes on some of the biggest political and social issues today including racism, colonialism, and the true color of Jesus. The New York Times has called him “one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today.” He has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman , Conan , Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live at Gotham and John Oliver’s New York Standup Show. Tom sits down with Hari to discuss political correctness and how the comedy battlefield has changed over time.

He has a show with Creative Alliance at The Patterson coming up Sunday August 23rd. The show will also feature performances by Liz Miele and local comedian Umar Khan. Hari’s debut stand-up album “Waiting for 2042” is available now as well.
