Wang Theatre | Boston, Massachusetts
Ali Wong comes to Wang Theatre on Saturday 7th August 2021 for the second in a two-night run of her Milk and Money Tour! The acerbic, acclaimed, and utterly unique comic was named as one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2020 and it's no wonder – with two critically lauded Netflix specials (Baby Cobra, Hard Knock Wife) and a hugely successful Netflix film (Always Be My Maybe) under her maternity belt! However, it's her decades on the live circuit that have made Wong one of the best stand-ups the US has to offer – simply unmissable!
Ali Wong first began her stand-up career upon graduating university and was named by Variety as one of 2011’s “10 Comics to Watch”. Over the next couple of years, she made several television appearances, including on The Tonight Show, John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show and Dave Attell's Comedy Underground Show, and she was cast as a series regular on the NBC comedy series Are You There, Chelsea? In 2014, she became a writer on the ABC series Fresh Off the Boat. Her Netflix special, Baby Cobra (2016), made Wong a household name and that same year she began starring in the main cast of the ABC sitcom American Housewife. Her second Netflix special, Hard Knock Wife, was released in 2018. Both Netflix specials were filmed when she was seven months pregnant with her first and second children, respectively. In 2019, she co-wrote and co-starred in the Netflix film Always Be My Maybe. She also voiced the titular character Bertie in the Netflix animated show Tuca & Bertie and later in 2019 released her first book entitled Dear Girls: Intimate Tales, Untold Secrets and Advice for Living Your Best Life.
