Celebrating Women’s History Month: Ali Wong

Ali Wong is a comedian, actress and writer from San Francisco, California who you’ve likely seen as she’s been in over two dozen movies and TV shows. Ali started her career in stand-up comedy and today we see her with two of her own Netflix specials: Baby Cobra and Hard Knock Wife. From the beginning, it was important to Ali that she be recognized for being funny and not for being a “sexual thing.” Onstage, it is her goal to make outfit choices that accentuate her personality — she’s even done stand-up while pregnant and admits that she wore dresses to show the baby bump and because she had to pee all of the time. Ha! Ali has contributed to comedy by being transparent and down to Earth about being Asian-American, being a woman, and becoming a mother. She has a book out that goes into detail about all of the above entitled, “Dear Girls: Intimate Tales, Untold Secrets & Advice for Living Your BestLife.” Fresh Off the Boat, You will Always be my Maybe, and American Housewife are some of our favorite shows and movie you can find her in. Ali Wong, we see you and can’t wait for more of your work!
