Back when Jon Stewart announced he was leaving The Daily Show, everyone had opinions about who would best fill his chair.

And it s a good thing he found his way into that world: he s the best political standup comedian working today, with pop culture tastes that see him blend bits about Weezer and Back to the Future with discussions of healthcare, police violence, and the changing racial makeup of the United States.

Over the past four years, Kondabolu s career has seen a sharp uptick.

The record is a mix of social topics that make him particularly angry eroding access to healthcare for women , turns of phrase that don t make sense Boys will be boys , and for the first time, topical political humor—including bits about Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and even Bobby Jindal.
