Ali Wong is a stand-up comic from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles. Her Netflix stand-up special “Baby Cobra” was filmed when she was seven 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.” It has received public praise from Jim Gaffigan, Bill Burr, Amy Schumer and more. Elle applauded it as a “comic genius gem” while Vogue called it “the special that everyone is talking about.”
In 2010, Comedy Central listed Ali Wong as one of 7 “Comics to watch” and in 2011, Variety named her as one of the “10 Comics to Watch.” Since then, Wong has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” appeared in Oliver Stone’s “Savages” and was a series regular on NBC’s “Are You There Chelsea.” In 2012, she hosted the Golden Globes live coverage on E! and in 2013 she joined the reboot of VH1’s “Best Week Ever,” MTV’s new show “Hey Girl” and performed on the new season of “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show.”
