B.’s not the only one who uses comedy to confront racial divides. Check out the New York Times profile on Indian-American comedian Hari Kondabolu.
“It’s cathartic for me to make people laugh because it means I’m not alone. Other people find this absurd as well.”
Citing Richard Pryor’s groundbreaking stand-up as inspiration, Kondabolu turns the pain of the past into laughter while riffing on post-colonialism, homosexuality in pop culture, and why America needs new superheroes. Or find out why Kondabolu is waiting for 2042 in his interview on NPR’s All Things Considered.
I think Brahman/i would admire Hari Kondabolu’s conviction. And that deserves a big “Heliocentrism!” salute!
