Ali Wong and her baby bump are headed back to Netflix—when else?—this Mother’s Day in Hard Knock Wife, the follow-up to her excellent 2016 special Baby Cobra. A very pregnant Wong returns to Netflix two years after giving birth to her daughter, whom she was carrying while shooting her first special for the streamer.
Wong shot her new hour at the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto. “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,” according to Netflix’s official synopsis.
Hard Knock Wife streams on Netflix on Sunday, May 13. Watch Wong twerk in a teaser for the special below, revisit our 2016 interview with the comic right here, mine her motherhood-related wisdom here and see where she landed on our list of that year’s top comedians here.
