In Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife, the always unapologetic and nasty first time mom gets real on why having kids is not all it’s cracked up to be, including the challenges of breastfeeding, balancing family and career post pregnancy, and why all women deserve three years of paid maternity leave. The hourlong special was filmed at Toronto’s Winter Garden Theatre, and premieres globally on (appropriately) Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13 on Netflix.
Wong’s first Netflix special, Baby Cobra, was released on Mother’s Day 2016. It was filmed in September 2015 when Wong was seven months pregnant with her daughter.
Jay Karas directed both Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife and Baby Cobra Netflix specials.
Wong was a series regular on NBC’s Are You There, Chelsea? and appeared on Chelsea Lately. She also played Dr. Lina Lark on ABC’s Black Box and guest-starred in several episodes of Inside Amy Schumer. She can currently be seen as Doris on American Housewife. Her film credits include Savages and Dealin’ With Idiots.
