Ali Wong is returning to Netflix for a second stand-up special.
The comedian and actress has had a diverse career, ranging from appearances in BoJack Horseman, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, American Housewife and Inside Amy Schumer to writing for the first three seasons of Fresh Off the Boat. In 2016, she recorded Baby Cobra for Netflix, a stand-up special that told the hilarious journey of how hard she worked to find Mr. Perfect, get married, buy a house and have a baby. But it all didn’t exactly turn out how she planned, not least because at seven months pregnant she was recording a stand-up special for Netflix.
Now, she’s reuniting with the streaming giant for a second special. In Hard Knock Wife, the “always unapologetic and nasty first time mom” will get real on why having kids is not all it’s cracked up to be, from the challenges of breastfeeding to balancing a family and career, and will explain why all women deserve three years of paid maternity leave.
The hour-long special was recorded at Toronto’s Winter Garden Theatre, with Jay Karas once again at helm. It will be released on Sunday 13th May – which, rather aptly, is Mother’s Day in America.
