Comedy is one of the hardest jobs in the entertainment industry all around the world. For an Asian woman, being a comic is even more challenging. One such comedian who gained immense popularity for her stand-up comedy act is Ali Wong. She became a breakout star comedian when her Netflix special Baby Cobra went on air where she performed 7 months pregnant. In her gigs, she often mentioned her husband. Because of this many people started wondering who Ali Wong’s husband is?

Up until recently, Justin used to work as the vice president of a multi-million dollar tech company GoodRx. According to an interview with Vanity Fair in May 2019, Justin’s wife Ali Wong revealed that Justin left his position as the VP in GoodRx. Furthermore, he was supporting his wife on her tours by helping out in her merch booth, selling T-shirts and swag to fans. He also started Yogastart to promote a healthier lifestyle and has collaborated with notable organizations like Tea, Seventh Generation, and Patagonia. (Source: spockandchristine.com)
