LA comic Ali Wong, who's been all over TV (Black Box, Inside Amy Schumer, Chelsea Lately) and occasionally in the movies (Always Be My Maybe, Savages), is probably best-loved for her jokes: about being a child of immigrants (on the necessity of purse hooks: "My mom didn't come to this country so I could shit with my backpack on"), men (Asian men "smell like responsibility"), money (wanting to get to a financial position where she can afford sliced Whole Foods mango—"That's how you know you've made it. When you're eating mango that was sliced by a dude named Noah.") Not too long ago, she filmed a stand-up special while seven months pregnant—to the delight of critics. She'll be worth seeing live.
Fifth show (7/21 at 7 pm) on sale Fri April 12 at 10 am.
