ALI WONG is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actress living in Los Angeles, CA. With the recent release of her Netflix Special, ALI WONG: BABY COBRA, Ali became the first comedian to record a stand up special while 7 months pregnant. Ali co-stars in the new ABC comedy, “American Housewife,” premiering this fall.
After SF Weekly selected her as "The Best Comedian of 2009" and the SF Bay Guardian awarded her "Best of the Bay," she decided that it was finally time to depart her hometown. Since then, she has gained large cult followings in New York City and Los Angeles and has appeared on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" and MTV's "Hatin' on '09." Kong Magazine has said of her: "One of the most fearless comics in the comedy scene right now, Ali Wong's control of a crowd and the stage could be compared to that of Chris Rock (who she has performed with) or Richard Pryor. Her tendency for brutal honesty results in devastatingly funny shows. Ali dares to goes place most comics fear and that's just one of the reasons she's so fun to watch and definitely one to keep an eye on."
