Time Out says

Perhaps you know Ali Wong's wildly raunching humor from her Netflix stand-up specials, Hard Knock Wife and Baby Cobra. Now the comedian is bringing her uproarious insights to New York City with eight shows at the Beacon Theatre this spring.

The residency, from March 29 to April 23, is part of her "Milk & Money" tour, and it's the first residency at the Beacon Theatre of a female comedian, according to the Madison Square Garden Company.

"I moved to NYC in my late 20s to become a better stand-up comedian," Wong said in a statement. "When I lived there, I would perform up to nine sets per night for no money, often in shitty bars where there were sometimes only two people in the audience. It’s incredibly thrilling to return 10 years later to do a residency at the legendary Beacon Theatre. Hopefully there will be more than two people in the audience."

According to MSG, all but one of the shows is sold out. Ticketmaster has tickets listed for $49.50 to $99.50 a piece for April 23.
