Salute Your Short

posted by on June 10 at 12:00 PM

You could call this a conflict of interest, since comedian Hari Kondabolu is a friend of mine, but whatever. His comedic short film, Manoj, is playing at STIFF tonight (6:15 pm, Jewel Box Theater, $8). I recommend it, unconflictedly.

I can’t vouch for any of the other shorts in tonight’s program, but Manoj—a mockumentary about an Indian comedian and America’s clumsy affection for stereotypes— is funny and smart and painful. (Read Charles’s profile of director Zia Mohajerjasbi here.)

In other Hari Kondabolu news, he’ll be appearing on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” on Friday, July 18th at 10 pm. If you like Hari Kondabolu, which you should, save the date.
