The incorrigibly smart Hari Kondabolu exhibits a duality in his act that doesn't seem quite plausible: He's both political and fun. The Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell writer, who has appeared on Conan and Comedy Central, deals in calmly reasoned polemics and the improbable "feminist dick joke." He'll headline at Carolines tonight, and trust us, the comedy-club prices are worth it—he's that funny.
