Ali Wong is a stand-up comic from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles. Her Netflix stand-up special Baby Cobra was filmed when she was 7 months pregnant. According to the New York Magazine, “The special’s arrival on Netflix is the sort of star-making moment that unites the tastes of the unlikeliest fans.” It has received public praise from Jim Gaffigan, Bill Burr, Amy Schumer, Questlove, Jay Duplass, Damon Wayans Jr., Randall Park, W. Kamau Bell, Adam Carolla, John Mulaney, Taylor Momsen,Meghan McCain, Janet Mock and Steven Yeun. Elle applauded it as a “comic genius gem” while Vogue called it “The special that everyone is talking about.” Emily Nussbaum hailed it as “funny and refreshingly rude.” The day before its premiere, Wong’s interview with Marc Maron on his podcast WTF was released. He called the special “the most honest, rawest, funniest special I’ve seen in years.”
