Hari Kondabolu Gets ‘Politically Re-Active’

Comedian Hari Kondabolu has reunited with his friend (and former ‘Last Laugh’ guest) W. Kamau Bell for a new season of their podcast ‘Politically Re-Active.’ In this episode, Hari shares his thoughts about Donald Trump, Joe Biden and undecided voters ahead of the 2020 election. He looks back on his mildly embarrassing late-night stand-up debut on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and explains why Margaret Cho made him want to become a comedian in the first place. And finally, Hari reacts to the way ‘The Simpsons’ directly responded to his documentary ‘The Problem With Apu,’ shares how he feels about Hank Azaria’s decision to stop playing the role and why it shouldn’t have taken “the brutal murder of a Black man in Minneapolis to change animation.”
