Live Wire with Luke Burbank
featuring Sara Schaefer, Hari Kondabolu, Laura Chinn, and Danielle Ponder
Show: 7:30pm
Doors: 6:30pm

Portland's nationally syndicated public radio show returns to Revolution Hall for their live show season finale!!! Join Emmy award-winning host Luke Burbank and announcer Elena Passarello for a night of new, unpredictable, and culturally relevant conversations and performances from emerging and established acts. They'll be joined by award-winning humor writer and producer Sarah Schaefer, comedian, actress, and author of the brand new memoir Acne, Laura Chinn, as well as funny man, podcaster, and public radio regular Hari Kondabolu with a performance by genre-defying musical guest Danielle Ponder to round out the evening!

SARA SCHAEFER

Sara Schaefer is a critically acclaimed stand-up comedian, writer, and producer. She was the co-host of MTV’s late night show Nikki & Sara Live, and her half-hour comedy special debuted in November 2019 on Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents. She won two Emmy awards for her work at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and won a WGA Award for her work on Ed Helms’ Comedy Central special The Fake News with Ted Nelms. She has also written for numerous programs as well as her own digital series Woman Online. 

LAURA CHINN

Laura Chinn is a writer, comedian and actress who has established herself as a creative mind to watch through her extensive catalog of work across multiple different mediums. Her debut memoir, Acne, follows Chinn as she hilariously remembers her struggle of growing up on the west coast of Florida as a mixed-race girl whose appearance doesn’t necessarily match her identity. Chinn recounts her life with a combination of laugh-out-loud recollections and heart-wrenching moments of introspection and self-love that expand beyond the typical memoir. 

HARI KONDABOLU

As one of Live Wire's very favorite guests, comedian Hari Kondabolu might be the smartest person you laugh at this year. Before becoming a regular on public radio and appearing on NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me and Midday on WNYC, Hari earned a Masters in Human Rights from the London School of Economics and worked as an immigrant rights organizer in Seattle. Because of his educational background, his comedy is a complex blend of social commentary, honest personal experience, and trenchant political wit. He has released two comedy albums and has performed on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and The Late Show with David Letterman among others. 

DANIELLE PONDER

For singer-songwriter Danielle Ponder, bravery took the shape of leaving her successful day job working in the public defender’s office to devote herself full-time to sharing her powerful voice with the world. Written and recorded over three years, the singer-songwriter’s mesmerizing debut album, Some of Us Are Brave, is a refreshingly original, shiver-inducing mix of pop, R&B, blues, rock, and moody trip-hop topped by Ponder’s celestial voice. Described as "a singular talent on a meteoric rise” (SPIN) and following her much lauded performances at SXSW and showcases in New York and Los Angeles, Ponder continues to successfully tour. She is also among the 30 new artists in YouTube’s Foundry Class of 2022, a global development program for independent music, that supports indie artists at all stages of their careers.
