There’s a new alternative to the Comedy Club. No drink minimums, and [relatively few] dick jokes. We get it; Airline food sucks, dogs are different from cats, and women love shoes. Moving forward, Houston Comedian Nia De-Bose is providing Houstonians with a new format for comedy. The Late Nite Liquid Courage Comedy Showcase will feature the city’s best and brightest upcoming and established stand-up Comics. Think of the Tonight Show, if it only featured Comedians. With the Average Black Band playing some mean 70’s funk, and libations abound it’s sure to tickle your funny bone and lure you into the Soul Train line! Local stand-up legend Ali Siddiq headlines.
Determination to succeed best describes Ali’s rising star into comedy, building an impressive resume in a short period of time. Ali has hosted and performed at several college campuses, participated in numerous celebrity events and briefly hosted his own radio show, “Tuesdays with Ali”, on KBXX 97.9 The Box. Ali began his comedy career in the penitentiary. Refusing to feel life had defeated him, he emerged from the dreary walls of incarceration as a man with a zealous mission; to become a professional humorist. “To me therapy is comedy, comedy is laughter, and laughter is happiness.” Ali’s hard work and dedication resulted in his swift and steady rise in the comedy arena. In his new life, he quickly took advantage of the opportunities given to him by the owner of the Jus’ Joking Comedy Café, in Houston, Texas. There he emerged as a weekly featured stand-up. Honing his comedic storytelling skills, building his name and quickly catching the interest of some of the most talented comedians in the industry. His off brand style of humor tickles the funny bone of audiences at every show.
