Storyline

Two years after giving birth to her daughter, a very pregnant Ali Wong returns in her second original stand-up comedy special, filmed at Toronto's Winter Garden Theatre. The always unapologetic and nasty first time mom gets real on why having kids is not all it's cracked up to be, including the challenges of breastfeeding, balancing family and career post pregnancy, and why all women deserve three years of paid maternity leave.

She's back! I was really hoping she would come back again, never expected her to be pregnant again on another special. She's got the pregnant lady wobble-walk down.

If I had to compare to another comic I'd say she's a lot like an Asian female version of Kevin Hart, just seems naturally funny and energetic, at least on stage, and makes jokes about her life.

I loved her first netflix special 'Baby Cobra', and this one is the same Ali Wong style but with her life inspirations in early motherhood/family life since then.

Here's hoping that when her kids can walk or speak she'll have a bunch of new experiences for another special :-)
