March 12, 2014

HARI KONDABOLU announces the release of his debut comedy album ‘WAITING FOR 2042’ out MARCH 11th on KILL ROCK STARS.

Recorded live in Oakland, CA, Hari entertains and challenges his very excited audience with material about white Jesus, eating the rich, Matthew McConaughey, socially conscious time travel and how 90s alternative rock band Weezer broke his heart.  



Waiting for 2042  is available for pre-order at

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.
