I know from speaking with lots and lots of comedians over the last six years or so (jealous?) that doing local press to promote their road shows is not at the top of the list of things they enjoy. But I just watched comedian Hari Kondabolu’s appearance from this morning on Seattle’s program New Day — he’s playing this weekend at the Kirkland Performance Center — and I have to say, it went down nicely.
Anyway, check out the chat below, wherein Hari tells a hilarious story about his recent performances in Denmark (see title of this post), what he’s doing (or not doing for Mother’s Day) and explains a bit about his philosophy on the type of comedy he does.
If you don’t know, Hari’s a comic you should be watching closely– he packages socially and politically poignant material in a digestible, laid back delivery. And he’s hilarious, despite what he claims some people say about him. Check him out in action after the jump.
