Houston’s own Ali Siddiq started his comedy career telling jokes in prison – and his determination and fearlessness launched him in to showbusiness when he was done serving his time. Ali’s unique perspective and distinct style have caught the attention of Comedy Central, some of comedy’s biggest touring headliners, and (of course) the best comedy venue in the DMV. Join us as he headlines the club for a second year in a row.

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, and 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.
