Comedian Hari Kondabolu to bring wit, social commentary to Theater 99

Hari Kondabolu will bring his brand of comedy to Theater 99 on Saturday.

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
