A Hometown Welcome for Ali Wong
It is no surprise that Ali Wong has 16 shows scheduled for The Masonic in San Francisco’s Nob Hill over the next few weeks. The stand-up comedian, actress, writer and SF native has built a remarkable fanbase – just a few months ago she was the first to sell out 13 shows at the landmark Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. Demand is high for a spot to see this comedian because of her deft, absolutely unfiltered take on life and her charismatic presence on stage.
Wong took off in 2016 with the premier of her stand-up special, Baby Cobra, which covered sex, marriage, men, Asian culture, and the female double-standard of parenting.
The special was a hilariously delightful new perspective in a scene dominated by males. Wong, at the time very visibly pregnant, put on a bold show that didn’t mention her pregnancy until the latter part of the set. Perhaps it was best described by Ariel Levy in The New Yorker: “There is a bracing thrill to watching a woman so manifestly gravid being irreverent and lewd.”
Wong’s special was met with critical acclaim and has kept her quite busy over the last three years. She co-wrote and starred in Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe, had another Netflix special in 2019 (Hard Knock Wife), currently acts on various sitcoms (American Housewife), voices Bertie in the comedy animated show Tuca & Bertie, and recently penned an amusing memoir dedicated to her daughters (Dear Girls). The list goes on.
The Pacific Heights native comes back home to perform her latest stand-up, The Milk & Money, from Dec. 21-Jan. 19 at The Masonic. All 16 shows are currently sold out, but Stub Hub has resale tickets available. Treat yourself to a night of comedy – the hometown audience is expected to be absolutely electric.
