He is the younger brother of comedian Hari Kondabolu, with whom he conducts the monthly "Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Project" as well as the "Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Podcast" every two weeks. Rolling Stone India described Ashok as "New York’s stock Joe Gould-like character injected with the creative adrenaline of gonzo journalist Hunter S Thompson and the uncouth coarseness of writer Charles Bukowski." With the break up of Das Racist in December 2012, Kondabolu stated that he would be focusing his attention on two television shows and his radio show Chillin' Island
