On today's show I talk to stand-up Hari Kondabolu. Born and raised in Queens, Hari became a professional stand-up almost by chance while working as an immigrant rights organizer. He’s performed on Jimmy Kimmel, Letterman, Conan, John Oliver and has his own Comedy Central Presents. Hari also wrote for and appeared as a correspondent on FX's Totally Biased with Kamau Bell and his debut stand-up album Waiting for 2042 is now out on Kill Rock Stars.
