Sex, feminism and trapping a man.
BQB here with a review of Ali Wong’s stand-up comedy Netflix special, Ali Wong: Baby Cobra.
I consider myself a comedic historian and to the best of my knowledge, this special marks the first time that a comedian took to the stage while seven months pregnant.
With her baby bump on full display and not slowing her down a bit, Fresh off the Boat writer Ali Wong makes all manner of freaky sexual jokes that might offend your virgin ears, puts political correctness through a meat grinder, dishes on all the hilarious methods she used to “trap” her Harvard Business School graduate husband, and even sends up feminism (all women had to do was stay home and some bitch had to go and ruin it).
Her words (paraphrasing), not mine. Different comedians are definitely able to say different types of things and get away with it in today’s politically correct age.
I’d never heard of Ali before and just watched her special on a lark but I was glad I did. The one thing I notice is she speaks with almost a devilish charm, like she’s trying to come across as evil to make the jokes work yet you are also left with the impression that she isn’t half that evil off the stage.
Then again, how would I know? I never asked her trapped husband.
