At the Vancouver Playhouse
Indian Summer Festival presents Hari Kondabolu
Hari Kondabolu is a comedian, writer and podcaster based in Brooklyn, NY. His Netflix special “Warn Your Relatives” was released in 2018 and he was named one of Variety’s Top 10 Comics To Watch. Hari has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver’s NY Stand-Up Show, @Midnight and has his own half-hour special on Comedy Central. He is also a former writer and correspondent on the Chris Rock produced FX TV show “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.” Hari carries forward the time-honoured tradition of the jester who exposes hypocrisy and questions power. In 2017, he released his critically acclaimed documentary “The Problem with Apu”, tackling the stereotypical Indian character on The Simpsons. The documentary stirred an earnest international discussion about perpetuating cultural stereotypes. Hari has released two comedy albums, “Waiting for 2042” and “Mainstream American Comic” with the legendary indie rock label Kill Rock Stars.
Hari returns to Vancouver after a history of sold-out shows in the city, with his trademark skillful blending of the personal and the political. Described by The NY Times as “one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today,” Kondabolu will have the Vancouver Playhouse audience in fits of laughter in this one-night only event.
