Glossies Made Me Do It: June 2018

For this month’s Glossies, I used the June 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (Kesha is on the cover). I love all the different recommendations Cosmo gives for the month in the beginning of their magazine, which is where I found June’s find!

Glossies Made Me…Watch Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife

Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife

I knew Ali Wong from the show American Housewife and I think she’s hilarious on there, so I was excited to see that she had a new stand-up special on Netflix. I haven’t watched her first special, but this one is called Hard Knock Wife and deals a lot with having a baby. I’d say about the entire first half is all about pregnancy, breastfeeding, maternity leave, etc. That’s not a bad thing though! This is obviously a comedian that moms can relate to and while I’m not a mom, I did find her quite amusing.

Ali is definitely real – she’s not afraid to cuss or talk about sex, and after all the baby talk, there is quite a bit about marriage and sex. I’m not always a huge fan of these types of jokes – sometimes they just seem more crude or annoying than funny, regardless if the comedian is male or female. So I wasn’t a huge fan of everything in the special, I have to admit. Also, Ali has a certain way of talking when she tells certain jokes – you’d probably have to watch to understand what I mean – but this kind of drove me nuts sometimes. I just wanted to hear her regular voice more often, I guess.

I do think Ali is funny and I’d be curious to see what moms thought of her stand-up since it’s probably really easy to relate to in that regard. This wasn’t my most favorite stand-up special, but I would be happy to see Ali in more (stand-up or acting).

  4. I find comedy so hit and miss. The problem is it’s very subjective, isn’t it? Someone’s favourite stand-up comedian is another’s most hated lol I’ve heard of Ali Wong but I don’t think I’ve seen her in anything, might be time to change that since everyone seems to love American Housewife!

  5. I watched her two shows and I thought they were funny. There were parts that I laughed at, but I wouldn’t say she’s my favorite stand-up comedian. I did recommend her to a couple of my friends who have kids since I think the latest special was geared more towards mothers.

  6. Yes! I love Ali Wong so much, she is super funny on American Housewife, it’s actually one of my favorite shows. I didn’t even know she had a Stand-up comedy on Netflix. Thanks for featuring this awesome post today. Hope you have a great week ahead. ? xoxoPart thriller, part superhero fantasy, the Renegades

  7. I actually haven’t heard of her or her show American Housewife before, but I typically love comedy that touches on real life as long as it’s not derogatory or offensive. It’s probably a great way for mum’s to unwind at the end of the week, with a mum who shares the same issues they’re going through. Even through comedy, it makes you feel a little less alone. Great post Lauren, really enjoyed it ♥♥♥
