Author, columnist, and comedian Steve Hofstetter is often called the hardest working man in show-business. With all due respect to the late James Brown.

Hofstetter‘s national TV debut came on ESPN’s Quite Frankly, where Stephen A. Smith yelled at him for three minutes. Hofstetter has also appeared on CBS’ “Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson”, Showtime’s “White Boyz in the Hood”, VH1’s “Countdown”, Sundance’s “On the Road in America”, and ABC’s “Barbara Walter’s Special”, where he thankfully did not cry. He is the host and executive producer of “Laughs” on Fox networks, where he only cries occasionally.

One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the original writer for collegehumor.com has also released six albums. Hofstetter has written humor columns for the New York Times, SportsIllustrated.com, and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a Ranger fan.

After hosting Four Quotas on Sirius Satellite Radio for two seasons, Hofstetter moved to broadcast radio, and his Sports Minute (Or So) was syndicated on over 170 stations and in over 30 newspapers. Hofstetter‘s second live comedy album (“Cure For the Cable Guy”) reached #20 on Billboard’s comedy charts. His third album (“Dark Side of the Room”) was the first ever pay-what-you-want” comedy album, since people were going to steal it anyway. His fourth album consisted of an hour of 100% ad-libbed material, which is, frankly, nuts. And his fifth album hit #1 on iTunes’ comedy charts, which is also a bit nuts.

Hofstetter‘s brutal tour schedule consists of over 100 colleges and dozens of clubs every year, and is fueled by an immense online popularity, tons of press, and a Prius with great gas mileage. He reached 200,000 friends on Facebook (still the world record), 400,000 more on MySpace, and high shelves in grocery stores.

While Hofstetter‘s live shows are routinely sold out, he is best known for his writing, first published at age 15, mainly to impress girls. At 18, he co-founded “Sports Jerk of the Week”, an irreverent website featured by press like USA Today’s Baseball Weekly, Sports Illustrated and CNN. And at 20, Hofstetter took a year off of school to head up web content for the New York Yankees. The Yankees won the World Series that year, which would have been wonderful if they hadn’t beaten Hofstetter‘s Mets. Yes, he’s also a Mets fan. Poor kid.

While an undergraduate at Columbia University, Hofstetter was a well-read columnist for the Columbia Daily Spectator and a voice of the Lions. After a summer writing for Maxim, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated for Kids, Hofstetter syndicated his column in several newspapers.

Without his glasses, Hofstetter also looks a great deal like Michael Rappaport.

Hari Kondabolu is a comedian, writer and podcaster based in Brooklyn. The NY Times called him “one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today” and described  his 2018 Netflix special Warn Your Relatives as “an incisively funny and formally  adventurous hour that reveals a comic in command of his powers.” The special was  named on many “Best of” lists, including for Time, Paste Magazine, Cosmopolitan, E!  Online, and Mashable. He was also named one of 2018’s “Comics To Watch” by  Variety. 

In 2017, his truTV documentary The Problem with Apu was released to critical acclaim  and spurred a global conversation about race and representation. The Nation called it “a  devastating critique of the ultimate comedic sacred cow: The Simpsons.” It is now used  in high school, college and grad school curriculums around the US. 

Hari has also released two comedy albums, Waiting for 2042 & Mainstream American  Comic with legendary indie rock label Kill Rock Stars. Additionally, he has performed on such shows as Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and The Late Show with David Letterman among many others. He is also a former writer & correspondent on the much loved,  Chris Rock produced FX show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell

A regular on the public radio, Hari is a panelist on the NPR game show Wait Wait…  Don’t Tell Me. As a podcaster, he co-hosted the popular Politically Reactive with dear  friend W. Kamau Bell. Additionally, he also co-hosts what he politely describes as a  “pop up podcast,” The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Podcast with his younger brother  Ashok (“Dap” from HBO’s Chillin’ Island and defunct rap group Das Racist.) 

Hari attended both Bowdoin College and Wesleyan University, graduating from the  former institution with a B.A. in Comparative Politics. A former immigrant rights  organizer in Seattle who worked under the leadership of now-Congresswoman Pramila  Jayapal, Hari also earned a Masters in Human Rights from the London School of  Economics in 2008. He was the “Artist In Residence” at NYU’s APA Institute for the  2014-2015 Academic Year and at Shangri La Museum in Honolulu in 2018.
