Unmasked, Ron Bennington’s acclaimed interview series with comedians, is heading to Washington D.C..  On Friday June 17th,  Ron Bennington will welcome west coast guest Ali Wong to sit down for an hour long conversation in front of a live studio audience.  To find out how to request free tickets to the event, see below.

San Francisco native Ali Wong caught Bennington’s attention when her first hour special, Ali Wong: Baby Cobra debuted on Netflix this year. She taped the special while 7 months pregnant. Bennington isn’t the only one who noticed- Baby Cobra has gotten critical love from a wide variety of publications ranging from Vulture to Vogue, as well as fans and other comics.  She also writes for ABC’s hit comedy show, Fresh Off the Boat, and has appeared on The Tonight Show, Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground, and Chelsea Lately.  Wong started performing stand up after graduating from college with honors, and shortly after moved to New York City to pursue comedy.  In 2011, she was listed on the prestigious Variety “10 Comics to Watch” list, and New York Magazine called her special a “star-making moment that unites the tastes of the unlikeliest fans.”

Ron and Ali will talk about her new special and her career.  The episode will tape at the SiriusXM studios in Washington D.C. on June 17 at 1pm. The SiriusXM studio is located at 1500 Eckington Pl NE, Washington, DC.

The Unmasked series documents the careers of the very best comedy writers, directors, filmmakers, actors, screenwriters, satirists, political comedians, comedic musicians and of course, stand up comedians in the business. With over 125 episodes so far, Unmasked is a veritable archive of the greatest comedy of our time.
