      Audience Member Her third special Don Wong is the best but this one is really great too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Netflix paid this woman real money to be unfunny two years ago. Guess what? She's still not funny, at all, ever, even remotely. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review tom m Funny enough. She definitely hits hard on the raunchy humor. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Her material is so raw and funny! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Buttholes, is definitely not funny Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Really terrible. Scurrilous it's the word. And a segment about body-shaming? Really? In 2018? We're better than that. I had to force myself to finish it.

      Carol Eugene Park Bitch Media More importantly, she speaks her truth without guilt, contrasting popular discourse about mothers feeling ashamed of returning to work too quickly or hanging out with friends without bringing their baby along. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Danette Chavez AV Club Hard Knock Wife's most inspired moments come from Wong's ability to make the natural sound almost alien, and sometimes even downright terrifying. Dec 27, 2018 Full Review Mike Katzif NPR She has great command of pacing and long pauses. Dec 27, 2018 Full Review Greg Kennedy The National (UAE) A fierce and very pregnant Wong holds forth for an hour on the challenges of breastfeeding, juggling family and career post-pregnancy - and also why all women deserve three years of fully paid maternity leave. Dec 27, 2018 Full Review Kayleigh Donaldson Pajiba Wong proves with ease that she's one of the best comedians working today. Dec 27, 2018 Full Review Megan Reynolds The Muse/Jezebel Motherhood itself isn't a political act, but the various ways facets of society rise up to tell women how to be a mother are, certainly. The beauty of Hard Knock Wife is in hearing these gnarlier truths explored with filthy and honest verve. Jun 14, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
