Critics Consensus

Ali Wong emerges a mother still perturbed in Hard Knock Wife, a hilariously honest hour of comedy that highlights the joys and oh boys of motherhood with fearless energy and just the right amount of squirmy detail.

  • Hard Knock Wife's most inspired moments come from Wong's ability to make the natural sound almost alien, and sometimes even downright terrifying.

  • She has great command of pacing and long pauses.

  • Wong uses her body and her subject matter to challenge you, but Wolf pushes the limits in every joke with a distinctive, high-pitched voice that is easy to hate. It's a cloying screech that she acknowledges sure, but it never goes away.

  • [Wong's] new set is filled with searing takes on the limits of maternity leave and the disappointments of early motherhood. Dad jokes, step aside.

    November 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps the most radical thing about Hard Knock Wife is that nowhere in her routine does Wong mention the obvious fact that, once again, she is pregnant. One way of interpreting her silence is as a bold gesture of liberation...

  • Hard Knock Wife makes for some filthily maternal (and wonderfully progressive) counterprogramming.
