Comedian Ali Wong seemed to come out of nowhere. For unwitting movie fans, she rose to prominence after scoring a role in DC’s Birds of Prey, released in 2020. Aside from this major feature film role, Wong also starred as Doris in the series American Housewife. Her success seemed to come quickly, and she’s suddenly starring in Netflix specials left and right. In 2020, she was listed in Time’s 100 Most Influential People. But comedy fans would know that her career is not an overnight success. She actually emerged as a stand-up comedian in 2011. She had done her part in working the local comedy circuit in New York. That year, she was considered an underdog in stand-up comedy, and her act did not go unnoticed. She was named one of ten comics to watch by Variety.
Thanks to her wit, impeccable timing, ability to continue the dialogue, and keeping people engaged, she quickly rose from open mic nights to appearing as a guest in shows like The Tonight Show, Chelsea Lately, John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, Dave Attell’s highly-acclaimed Comedy Underground Show. Besides stand-up, Wong had a burgeoning acting and voice acting career. In 2012, she appeared in 12 Chelsea Handler’s Are You There Chelsea episodes? She also bagged the role of Claire in Savages, where she starred alongside A-listers Benicio Del Toro and Salma Hayek. The following year, Ali Wong portrayed the role of Katieie in Dealing with Idiots. Moreover, Wong’s distinct voice has secured her several voice acting gigs for renowned shows and films like BoJack Horseman, Animals, The Angry Birds Movie, The Lego Ninjago Movie, and Tucs and Bertie.
With her incredible run of projects and exemplary comedy writing, she bagged her first Netflix Comedy Special five years into her career. In 2016, she debuted Baby Cobra, a breakout Mother’s Day Special. Contrary to popular belief, Wong’s bits have little to do about her race and everything to do about being a woman and a mother. She performed the special several months into her pregnancy, and her material comprises stories about motherhood, sexual misadventures, and feminism. The highly-rated special deserved a follow-up. So two years later, Wong dropped another Netflix special titled Hard Knock Wife. At this point, Wong was already the hottest comedian in town. In 2019, she sold out 13 shows in Los Angeles’ The Wiltern. Wong selling out a major venue was not isolated to California, she virtually sold out her 2019 North American tour, and she’s bound to do the same this 2023.
Reports of her sold-out residencies in multiple cities have made headlines. For this reason, you should quickly secure your tickets now before her shows in Vancouver sell out!
