WEDNESDAY, JAN. 21, CHAPEL HILL

DSI COMEDY THEATER—With the 15th annual NC Comedy Arts Festival scheduled for February, DSI Comedy Theater is warming up its stage with national talent. Brooklyn's Hari Kondabolu is the older brother of Ashok Kondabolu, aka Dapwell, who was a member of meta-rap group Das Racist. Like that group, Hari Kondabolu draws pointed laughs with riffs on Indian-American identity. "The theme of my set tonight will be colonialism," he said in a 2014 Conan appearance, "which is why I'm speaking only in English." Kondabolu has also performed on Late Night with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live, written for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, and released comedy album Waiting for 2042 on the indie-rock label Kill Rock Stars. 7 and 9 p.m., $14, 462 W. Franklin St., Chapel Hill, 919-338-8150, www.dsicomedytheater.com. —Brian Howe
