Comedian/ Filmmaker Hari Kondabolu Takes the Stage on April 2

“There’s no working comic who can seamlessly blend personal and socio-political comedy as substantively and satisfyingly as Hari Kondabolu.” – Exclaim

Fresh off the heels of his acclaimed documentary, The Problem With Apu, celebrated comedian Hari Kondabolu heads to the Arts Center on April 2 for an evening of stand up comedy. Best known for his comedy on subjects such as race, identity, and inequity, Hari has a unique voice that entertains and enlightens. Hari has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live and is a former writer / correspondent on the Chris Rock produced FX TV show “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.”

Following in the footsteps of comedians such as Hannibal Buress, Marc Maron, Barry Crimmins, and Tig Notaro, Kondabolu will make his Lawrence stand up debut right in a special Free State Festival presentation accompanied by opener Liz Miele. Buy tickets here.
