Ali has been performing stand-up for 6 years and can been seen all around Chicago talking about her favorite things; her southern family, working with kids and adults with special needs, and her bi-sexual experiences. Ali’s solo show “I’m Different, Not Dumb” has been featured at the NC Comedy Arts Fest, Chicago Sketch Comedy Fest, and Chicago Women’s Funny Fest. After seeing “I’m Different, Not Dumb” the Chicago reader called her a “charismatic performer” and the internationally renowned art blog Art F City mentioned “What Am I Looking At?”; an art review web series hosted by Ali.
