Ali Siddiq is stand-up comedian, public speaker, and writer out of Houston. His unique style of stand-up began behind the walls of incarceration, an incubator for interesting experiences and good stories.
People received their first taste of Ali Siddiq when he appeared on HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Live from Gotham. In 2013, he was named Comedy Central's "#1 Comic to Watch". Ali impressed comedy enthusiasts by displaying his ability to captivate an audience with his "Mexican Got Boots On" tale, a descriptive storytelling of a prison riot on Ari Shaffir's This is Not Happening, the first of two appearances. His stories continued with his Half Hour special, which premiered on Comedy Central in the fall of 2016. Immediately following the premier of that special, Comedy Central offered Ali an hour-special which is currently in pre-production and will be shot behind the walls of prison, sending Ali back to where it all started.
He will be bringing his stand-up show Who Has Good Service? to this year's Just For Laughs Festival.
