SILICON ALI: After two wildly successful Netflix stand-up specials, SF born Ali Wong comes to the Improv.

Two Netflix specials and two babies later, comedian Ali Wong is taking center stage again—this time not pregnant (we think) but with the same comedic force and exaggerated stage presence that brought her into the standup limelight. The San Francisco-born and -raised performer gained a serious following after her 2016 special, Baby Cobra, which she shot while seven months pregnant with her first child. Managing to tackle topics as disparate as diapers and foreplay in the same routine, somehow Wong manages to keep the crowd on her side, even as she plunges baby bump first into her crude, rude and self-absorbed on-stage persona.
