Wired Magazine called Hari Kondabolu “the best political comedian you don’t know about” and that’s a shame. He may talk about controversial topics like race, inequality and immigration but he’s not doing it to divide his audience or start some kind of rally that’s politically motivated to fire up 50 percent of the country. He seems to earnestly want everyone to laugh and have a good time even if you don’t agree with him and given how 50/50 our electorate seems to be these days, the chances are good that someone will lose their sense of humor about a joke that he makes. That doesn’t mean he’s not afraid to tackle tough subjects but he seems to want everyone who attends his shows to have a good time regardless of their philosophical persuasion or who they think is their political savior. The comedian worked as a writer and correspondent on W. Kamau Bell’s Totally Biased late night show and has performed on Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Conan as well as his own Comedy Central Presents special. He’ll perform in Dallas at Sons of Hermann Hall (3414 Elm St.) at 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 on the day of the show and all seats are general admission. Tickets can be purchased online at ticketfly.com.
