Comedy Night: Hari Kondabolu
w/ Liz Miele: Two Shows!
The last time Hari Kondabolu came through the Creative Alliance, both shows sold out. Advance purchase is highly recommended!
A fearless political comedian, Hari Kondabolu tackles social issues in the confrontational spirit of Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor - but with a voice all his own. Based in Brooklyn and raised in Queens, the New York Times calls him, “one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today.” In March 2014, he released his debut standup album “Waiting for 2042″ on indie-label Kill Rock Stars and was NYU’s APA Institute’s “Artist in Residence” for the 2014-2015 Academic Year.
Hari has done standup on the Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live at Gotham, and John Oliver’s New York Standup Show. His Comedy Central Presents half-hour television special debuted on the network in February 2011. He was also a writer and correspondent for the Chris Rock-produced Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX. In 2014, he was interviewed on Fresh Air with Terry Gross on NPR. A regular on the public radio circuit, he has also appeared on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Studio 360, Bullseye, and Soundcheck. He has also appeared on popular podcasts like WTF with Marc Maron, You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes, and Too Beautiful to Live with Luke Burbank. When in New York City, he co-hosts the mostly improvised talk show The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Project with his younger brother Ashok (“Dap” from hip hop group Das Racist) and their podcast The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Podcast. He also wrote the cover story for Spin Magazine about Das Racist in November 2011.
Liz Miele will open. Liz has appeared on Comedy Central and AXS TV as well as the Creative Alliance stage. She's been featured in The New Yorker, NY Times, Runner's World and The Guardian. She regularly tours with "The Nobodies of Comedy," Armed Forces Entertrainment, and is currently touring with Chris McDougal (author of "Born to Run") on his book tour this year. Liz also recently released her debut album "Emotionally Exhausting," which you can find on itunes, amazon and cdbaby.com.
