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 No. 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.
