Stand-up comedian and Bowdoin grad Hari Kondabolu recently joined Jennifer Egan and Andrew Bird at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in a show discussing different types of fears — the one that keep us on track and the ones that make us want to hide under the covers. He pokes a little fun at himself in the process: “I remember my father working seven days a week, sending me to college, and telling me, ‘Waste this. If you come back a doctor or a lawyer, it’s like killing me.’” Kondabolu’s biggest fear? Saying things the wrong way.
