It’s only been four years since comedian Hari Kondabolu released his first album, Waiting For 2042, via Kill Rock Stars, but he’d been working toward it for awhile, with appearances on stand-up showcases and late-night talk shows. It was arguably a 2012 on-screen appearance on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, the FX series for which Kondabolu wrote, that sowed the seeds for what would bring the comedian to his greatest notice.
