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 a cranky, assertive, shameless, Asian American and she's incredibly funny! Ali has made an art of timing and tone and there is a certain brevity in her wit which nails her humour. Yes, my jaw dropped at some of her content ("I can't believe she just said that") but there were plenty of other moments where I was laughing out loud; something that's hard to find in stand-up or any other comedy. Surrender yourself to it all and enjoy the ride!
