From now on, if anyone is searching for mainstream American comedians on Google, Hari Kondabolu wants his name, his face and his new stand-up album “Mainstream American Comic” to dominate the search results.
“All three words are things I’ve had to fight for,” says Kondabolu.
He may not be a household name, but he has developed a passionate following for his work. In some ways, he has broken through. Six episodes in, his new podcast, with W. Kamau Bell, “Politically Re-Active,” has already been in the top 15 on the iTunes charts.
