This woman is freaking FUNNY, and she knows it.
I was only about 20 minutes into Ali Wong’s special on Netflix before I said to myself, “Okay, this woman is hilarious.”
Not only did she have me in TEARS laughing, but she was also 7 months pregnant at the time of the recording and still KILLING her stand up.
What’s so great about comedian Ali Wong is that she’s able to joke about pretty much anything, even if that makes her comedy a little tongue-in-cheek.
But instead of making it sound like she doesn’t care about these topics or that she’s just joking about them to make her audience laugh, you can tell that she really does care about all these things — as well as making sure her stories and experiences are entertaining.
And if that’s not reason enough to love her, she’s been called the “Asian Beyoncé of stand up comedy”, which, of course, means she’s a total bad ass at what she does (just like Beyoncé). And SERIOUSLY funny.

In addition to her Netflix special, Baby Cobra, which I’ve watched twice now (seriously, check it out), Ali Wong also writes for the tv show Fresh Off the Boat — if you haven’t seen that either, you need to.
And now, she's even announced a soon-to-be-released collection of essays offering advice and sharing her many hilarious life stories.
Clearly, I’m a huge fan of Ali Wong, but it’s not hard to be after you experience her stand-up yourself.
More than that, though, she’s incredibly inspiring, showing those out there looking to follow in her footsteps or just make a name for themselves that you just need to believe in yourself and not give a f*ck what others are going to say or think.
