COMEDY DYNAMICS TO RELEASE ALI WONG’S FIRST ALBUM BABY COBRA ON MAY 12, 2017
LOS ANGELES, CA – Comedy Dynamics announced today it will release Ali Wong: Baby Cobra including additional content highlighting the making of the special on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify and all digital audio retailers on May 12, 2017.
Ali Wong, who was seven months pregnant during the taping of her one-hour special, delivered sharp, witty jokes about everything from her desire to be a stay-at-home mom, to how she says she “trapped” her Harvard-educated husband and that time she accidentally slept with a homeless man. The hugely popular special originally premiered on Netflix on May 6, 2016, and is considered to be an instant classic.
The writer, actress and comic began her career performing stand-up in New York City in the early 2000’s, and has since appeared as a series regular on NBC’s Are You There, Chelsea?, ABC’s American Housewife and ABC’s Black Box. She is a writer for ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat, and is currently touring the world doing stand-up.
“Baby Cobra is a once in a generation comedy special, up there with Raw and Carlin at Carnegie,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company.
