Became a popular Halloween costume Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage sex Asian culture working women and why you never see new mom comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dadsThe sharp insights and humor are even personal in this completely original collection She shares the wisdom she's learned from a life in comedy and reveals stories from her lif I often think about what it would be like for my grandfather to see me now What would he think about me saying all of the disgusting things I say onstage How he would feel about his granddaughter talking about what she lusts after How I obsess over the most trivial problems How I make a living by talking about what I want How people pay to see his granddaughter just talk He d probably think I was some sort of magician with ancient powers derived from behaving very well in a past life Or a witch I guess At the very least he d definitely have the opposite opinion of all those jealous ass white male comedians who say things like People only like your comedy because you re female and a minority My grandpa would be like I can t believe people like your comedy You re a female and a minority I have heard of Ali Wong and have seen her referenced a few times but have never seen any of her standup So needless to say I was leary about reading a memoir about her This book was recommended to me by someone I trust or I would have never picked it up on my own I usually like memoirs or biographies by people in the twilight years of their lives or better yet dead I think that comes from being a completist I want the whole story not just the first third of someone s life So here I am writing a review of a memoir by a woman in her 30s How extraordinary What is amazing is that I gave the book five stars How is this possibleIt is simply impossible not to Anyone who knows me well has heard my diatribe about movies billed as comedies It s not that I don t like to laugh I find life a series of comedic events but I like comedy that occurs naturally and comedic movies always come across as forced comedy which ultimately starts to feel flat and fake I m soon wishing I d put in something like In Bruges where a serious plot is freuently enlivened by comedic elements So what I m saying is that I m a terrible risk for a book like this Ali Wong chooses to write her book as a series of letters to her children The title reflects that but my first reaction isI m a guy so she isn t really interested in men reading this book Won t I feel like I m peeping in on revealing secrets not intended for me Of course the whole idea of Ali Wong having a secret she hasn t revealed to the world is rather hilarious Though I do wonder what secret could possibly be so horrendously embarrassing that Wong would not use it for her stand up comedy routine So the title does throw me but I uickly shake it off as I become caught up in her narrative It isn t long before I am thinkingdon t tell your daughters that My lifetime of brainwashed conditioning showing itself sporting a wagging finger and disapproving look By the end of the book I feel like Wong has taken a scrub brush of whitewash to those elements of my mind Full disclosure I did watch her ass wiggle as she scrubbed I would apologize but then she d have to bring her scrub brush back to have another go Reading this book is going to make you uncomfortable It may even offend you but keep reading because not only is it good to occasionally be uncomfortable sometimes you also learn to reserve being offended for those things that most deserve itI was about half way through the book when I decided to watch her Netflix special Baby Cobra I wanted to put together the Ali Wong being revealed to me in the book with the stand up comedian and found that the honest evaluation of her lusts wants and defects were syncopatico If there is pretense it is well hiddenThis woman is refreshingly uninhibited To some that might be code for rude but it is hard to consider this level of truth to be rude While watching the special I loved it when the camera would pan to the audience Those sideways looks that couples were giving each other the hand to the face as someone laughed at something they found to be embarrassingly true and as her husband describes it laugh so hard you pee reactions As compelling as it is to watch Ali s physical reactions it was eually fascinating to watch the crowd If I ever attend one of her events I d be tempted to spend the entire skit turned around observing the crowd I sort of sprung Baby Cobra on my wife no warning no gentle explanations to prepare her for what she was about to see She is freuently a test subject to gauge normal reactions to abnormal conditions If I was laughing I looked over at her so that I would laugh even harder She was one of those audience members with her hand over her face as she chuckled She laughed so hard at one time she had trouble breathing I didn t ask her if she had a pee reaction My wife never sweats but insists she only glistens so her admitting to any vulgar body reactions would be most unusual The book is hilarious but it is than that She talks a lot about the amount of hard work and dedication it takes to make it as a comedian She often performed several sets at comedy clubs after working all day She discusses the added hazard of being a female having to perform indives Can you imagine that walk from the club to her car in the early hours of the morning She believes that safety is one of the contributing factors as to why there are not female comedians She talks about her heritage and her relationship with her extended family Every immigrant family has an interesting story and her parents are no exception She is half Vietnamese and half Chinese and those two cultures may seem similar in the eyes of many but they actually have vast differences in philosophical approaches to life Her husband is also half and half and she describes their relationship as having the exact same amount of Asian They were both raised as Americans but their Asian roots heavily influence who they are Her husband writes an afterward also addressed to their children and he is pretty honest about his own personal journey dealing with being freuently the subject of his wife s comedy If she were making it all up or exaggerating the circumstances that would certainly be less of a problem but the issue of course is that she is sending arrows right into the bullseye I love what he says about her Asian cultures often teach us to be silent about our sexuality and filled with shame Your mother breaks that up and transmutes pain and shame into power like a mystical priestess So as unlikely as I am to be an Ali Wong fan I have to say it has happened Yes this book is hilarious but it also touches on serious issues and for this reader even proves to be an inspiration Keep chasing your dreams work harder and don t give up Few of us want to be as famous as Ali Wong but most of us wish we could be successful at something we love to do Patience grasshopper Wax on Wax off I want to thank Mimi Chan of
