Recently I went one of Ali Wong‘s comedy show in Las Vegas. I know her from her Netflix special called Baby Cobra. So when I found out she was touring and had a shows near by, I jumped at the chance to go to one of the shows. I’m glad I did. I initially paid for a back section but was upgraded closer to the stage. I guess they closed the back section and moved quite a few people closer to the front.
Her routine is a mix of personal stories and observations of Asian Americans in US. Some of the bits are spot on perfect while others are more exaggerations of Asian American culture biases. This show definitely is different from the Netflix show. Some of the bits are continuations of the stories she told while most of it comes her experiences going through pregnancy and then motherhood.
I highly recommend anyone to watch this show.
