Baby Cobra

Baby Cobra

When my boyfriend and I have run out of TV shows or we can’t agree on a movie, our recent choice of entertainment has been the stand up comedy special.

Recently a friend recommended Ali Wong’s Baby Cobra on Netflix and I’ve since watched it 3 times. Wong is a writer on the ABC comedy Fresh off the Boat and her stand up is hilarious. I could recite about half of it for you but I don’t want to give anything away. She touches on everything from working, to marriage, to HPV, to having a baby…and it’s so just so honest that you will find yourself agreeing to a lot of the things she’s saying through tears of laughter.

Any other comedians or specials you’d suggest? I probably should find something new to watch…

    Oh my goodness! I also shared her comedy stand up on Netflix with all my friends. I saw her yesterday during a short but hilarious stand up at the Laugh Factory in LA. My abs still hurt from the laughter.

  • I LOVE Ali Wong! We were at UCLA at the same time and I am sooooo glad that the world gets to experience her witty and downright honest/dirty sense of humor.

  • OMG, she is hilarious. Not sure if I can recommend someone else equally amazing. Right after I watched her I went on a trip to China and just kept looking around at the men thinking…it’s like making love to a dolphin : )

  • Ali Wong is amazing! I’d recommend Iliza Shlesinger ‘Confirmed Kills’! & Jen Kirkman ‘I’m gonna die alone (and I feel fine)’ Both on Netflix :)
