Stand Up Comedy
Many comedians are courageous, but it takes a special time of spirit to begin your stand-up career while in prison. Ali Siddiq has just that type spirit. Headlining comedy clubs and other venues worldwide, he has shown his ability to engage diverse audiences leaving many on their feet talking everything from fatherhood, politics, grocery shopping and education to Nigerian stripper associations. The 2013 winner of Comedy Central’s Up Next Competition, the Houston native has appeared on Showtime’s "Ladies Night Out Tour," "Centric’s 2014 All Star Taping," BET’s "Comic View" and HBO’s "Def Comedy Jam," as well as Comedy Central's "The Half Hour." He has released four albums to date.
