Housing Forward Presents W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu
About Kamau
W. Kamau Bell is a socio-political comedian who is the host of the upcoming CNN travel show, "The United Shades of America." Currently Kamau may be best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York Times called Kamau the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years. Among the places Kamau has been seen or heard are Comedy Central's @midnight, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Conan, Meet The Press, WTF with Marc Maron, The Rachel Maddow Show, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and This American Life. His writing has appeared on VanityFair.com, Salon.com, MSNBC.com, and Buzzfeed. Kamau is also proud to be the ACLU's Ambassador of Racial Justice. Although he's also pretty upset that they didn't give him a badge. Kamau is also the host of "Kamau Right Now!" www.wkamaubell.com/kamau-right-now, a public radio talk show that airs on KALW in San Francisco. These days Kamau might be most excited about his podcast with fellow comedian Kevin Avery entitled "Denzel Washington is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period." The SF Weekly called Kamau smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle, though he was more excited that they called him handsome.

About Hari
Hari Kondabolu is a Brooklyn-based, Queens-raised comic who the NY Times has called one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today. In March 2014, he released his debut standup album "Waiting for 2042" on indie-label Kill Rock Stars. He is currently NYU's APA Institute's Artist in Residence for the 2014-2015 Academic Year. Hari has done standup on the Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live at Gotham and John Oliver's New York Standup Show. His Comedy Central Presents half-hour television special debuted on the network in February 2011. He was also a writer and correspondent for the Chris Rock-produced "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell" on FX. He has also performed at such notable festivals as the HBO Comedy Festival, South by Southwest, Bumbershoot, Sasquatch, the Aspen Ideas Festival and Just for Laughs in Montreal and Chicago. When in New York City, he co-hosts the mostly improvised talk show "The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Project" with his younger brother Ashok (Dap from hip hop group Das Racist) and their podcast "The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Podcast."
