Join us for the DC Improv headlining debut of a truly remarkable talent. 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.


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.
