Raw Comedienne Ali Wong Vs. Facebook’s Yuppie Queen Cheryl Sandberg

 

 

Ali Wong thinks Sorority girl poster child Cheryl Sandberg is a “Bitch!” who ruined everything for women.

 

 

BMW driving Whole Foods yuppies are raging at Ali Wong’s: Baby Cobra show on Netflix where Wong delivers a one-two punch to the “Lean In” concept of Social Justice Warrior-ism created by Sandberg and her preppies-guide-to-white-bread book.

 

 

The petite former sex addict brings the pain to the carefully manicured world of high fashioned feminista style that Sandberg promotes. Wong tears the Facebook fancy pants a new one as she discusses her old one in cringe-worthy detail.

As Facebook falls apart in political disclosure, Sandberg is desperately looking for a new job at Disney.

 

 

Wong was born in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, California. Her father, Adolphus Wong, is American-born Chinese anesthesiologist, her mother, Tam “Tammy” Wong (née Nguyen), is Vietnamese, and as a young woman in 1960, came to the United States from Hue, Vietnam.[5][6] Growing up, she was raised in a Chinese household, the youngest of four children.[1][7]

 

In 2000, Wong graduated from San Francisco University High School,[8] where she was student body class president.[9] At the University of California, Los Angeles, where she was majoring in Asian American studies,[10] she discovered her love of performing as a member of UCLA’s LCC Theatre (Lapu, the Coyote that Cares Theatre Company), the longest running Asian-American theater company in the United States.[11] During college, for her junior year, she spent time in Hanoi, Vietnam.[1]

 

Following graduation from college, in 2005 when she was 23 years old, Wong tried stand-up for the first time at Brainwash Cafe, then moved to New York City soon after to further pursue comedy. In New York, she would perform up to nine times a night.[12]

 

In 2011, Variety named her one of the “10 Comics to Watch”.[3] She later was cast as series regular in the NBC comedy series, Are You There, Chelsea?, and appeared on Chelsea Lately.[13] Following that, she hosted VH1‘s Best Week Ever, and MTV‘s Hey Girl in 2013. Additionally, she appeared in a few movies: Oliver Stone‘s Savages, and Dealin’ with Idiots, opposite Jeff Garlin and Gina Gershon.[2]

 

In 2014, Wong starred as Dr. Lina Lark in the ABC medical drama series, Black Box, opposite Kelly Reilly.[14][15]

 

Wong now lives in Los Angeles, and is a staff writer for Fresh Off the Boat.[16] On Mother’s Day 2016,[17] Netflix released a stand-up special called Baby Cobra which was filmed in September 2015 when she was 7 months pregnant[18] at the Neptune Theater in Seattle.[7][12][19]

 

In 2014, Wong married Justin Hakuta, the son of Ken Hakuta aka “Dr. Fad”, an inventor and TV personality.[20] They had a daughter named Mari in November 2015, named after author Marie Kondo, who wrote The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.[18] They live in Los Angeles. Her husband is half-Filipino, half-Japanese.[6]
