Comedian Ali Wong is coming to JFL42 in Toronto

We had stumbled upon comedian Ali Wong in her Netflix stand-up special ‘Baby Cobra’ and couldn’t stop laughing. It’s not often we see a female asian comedian performing stand-up comedy….but she was also seven months pregnant at that time! Wow! We love her!

Considered one of the industry’s fastest rising stars and top selling artists, we’ve learned that Ali Wong is coming to the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto on September 23, 2017 for a special event with JFL42, Toronto’s Comedy Festival. Two shows have been slated on that date.

Wong is a stand-up comic from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles. Her Netflix special has received public praise form Jim Gaffigan, Bill Burr, Amy Schemer, Questlove, Jay Duplass, Damon Wayans Jr., Randall Park, and many more. Elle magazine applauded her as a “comic genius game” while Vogue called ‘Baby Cobra’ “the special that everyone is talking about.”

Wong is currently on a North American tour selling out seats at every show. So best to get on this fast. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 4th at 10 am at
