We swear to you, Ali Wong is not forever pregnant, at least not with children.

Though she was hella pregnant during her 2016 comedy special, Baby Cobra, and again in last year’s Hard Knock Wife, the 37-year-old actress, comedian, and writer is always birthing relatable commentary on womanhood, racism, and envying “fucking” housewives who are awarded the luxury of shitting in the comfort of their own home rather than having to use the single-ply “communist” toilet paper as supplied by their sad-ass jobs. Another product of Wong’s fertile mind is the upcoming Netflix celebrity chef rom-com, Always Be My Maybe, which confronts the pains of the friend zone.

Ali Wong's performances start at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 at the Fillmore; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; Tickets are $55.50+.
