Ali Wong Quotes

  • It’s unfair to the hard-core stay-at-home moms to pretend you’re able to have an amazing body by chasing around your kids.
  • I think one of the hardest things to talk about as a comic is having money because it’s so unrelatable.
  • Women, a lot of the time, are so much funnier than men, but they just choose not to do comedy for a living.
  • Comedy has so much to do with honesty, and women can be more open about their emotions.
  • I’m addicted to picking my nose. In a world of red tape and bureaucracy, where it takes forever to buy a house or get a cell-phone plan going, it’s so instant to just stick your finger up there and go for something your own body produces.
  • Mothering is just so different now from the way it was before. Especially with my mom. She was like the anti-helicopter mom. She was like an inflatable-tube, blow-up-flamingo-in-the-pool mom. Her philosophy was, the situation will declare itself.
  • Asian men are the sexiest. They got no body hair from the neck down.
  • Even now, when I go out people are like, ‘What are you doing here? Didn’t you just have a baby?’ But people never ask a male comic when he’s out a week later, like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so irresponsible! What are you doing out? Who is taking care of the baby?’
  • The concept of ‘diversity’ was this big moral ‘should.’ And now with the success of shows like ‘Fresh Off the Boat,’ ‘Empire,’ ‘Blackish,’ and ‘Jane the Virgin,’ it’s become this big business ‘must,’ which is so great.
  • Whenever I feel mom-guilt, or I feel pressure to be a better mom – to cook salmon on a bed of quinoa for my kids – I just think to myself, ‘I… have… suffered… enough.’ And then I feel fine about feeding my toddler a bag of chips for dinner.
  • When you have a child, you think about your own mortality.
  • I would love to dress like Beyonce: some custom-print, neoprene onesie with no pants.
  • I always really loved comedy. It’s the only thing I was ever good at.
