About the Show

This week on Wits, the band OK Go debuts a brand new, previously unreleased video that you have to see to believe. Yep, video on the radio. Comedian Hari Kondabolu talks colonialism, weird word tricks and having his high school mascot named after him. We play a new Game Show featuring less-than-famous quotes from very famous people. Plus, special guest W. Kamau Bell as a Smurf and we get advice on how to understand the TV show Falcon Crest and/or sneak up on people.



The Guests

Hari Kondabolu


Hari Kondabolu is a Brooklyn-based, Queens-raised comic who has been described by Timeout NY as “smart, analytical and rising.” He has done standup on the Late Show with David LettermanConan , Jimmy Kimmel Live!, John Oliver's New York Standup Show and was a writer and correspondent on the Chris Rock-produced FX Show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. He has also been interviewed on WTF with Marc Maron and NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross. He recently released his debut comedy album Waiting for 2042 on indie label Kill Rock Stars.



Formed as a quartet in Chicago in 1998 and relocated to Los Angeles three years later, OK Go (Damian Kulash, Tim Nordwind, Dan Konopka, Andy Ross) have spent their career in a steady state of transformation. Their latest album, Hungry Ghosts, is out on the band's own Paracadute label. Continuing a career that includes viral videos, New York Times op-eds, a major label split and the establishment of a DIY trans-media mini-empire, collaborations with pioneering dance companies and tech giants, animators and Muppets, OK Go continue to fearlessly dream and build new worlds in a time when creative boundaries have all but dissolved.
