Ali Wong is a stand-up comic from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles. Her first Netflix stand-up special Baby Cobra was filmed when she was 7 months pregnant. According to the New York Magazine, ”The special’s arrival on Netflix is the sort of star-making moment that unites the tastes of the unlikeliest fans.” Elle applauded it as a “comic genius gem” while Vogue called it “the special that everyone is talking about.” Emily Nussbaum hailed it as “funny and refreshingly rude.” The day before its premiere, Wong’s interview with Marc Maron on his podcast WTF was released. He called the special “the most honest, rawest, funniest special I’ve seen in years.”
On September 11, 2016, Wong spoke and walked the runway during New York Fashion Week for Opening Ceremony’s show. She has also joined the cast of Kate Spade’s Miss Adventure films.
Ali’s second stand-up special, Hard Knock Wife premiered on Netflix on Mother’s Day, 2018. Her feature film, Always Be My Maybe, which she co-wrote and co-stars in with Randall Park, will debut on Netflix in 2019.
Tickets to see Wong headline live are now known to sell out within two minutes.
