Hari Kondabolu is among the new guard of young stand-up comics who’s tackling social inequalities simply by making people laugh at them. An Indian-American, Kondabolu’s humor often centers on how minorities experience modern American culture, and his witty approach to turning polarizing issues into punch lines has earned him a great deal of critical praise. His debut stand-up album, “Waiting for 2042,” which held a spot on Billboard’s Top 10 Comedy Albums for a month, alludes to the year demographers predict the United States’ population will be dominated by minorities. The New York-based comedian will stop in Charleston this weekend during his international tour in support of the album.
When: 10 p.m. Saturday
