Ali Siddiq: I Got A Story To Tell
Tampa Theatre and Outback Presents will welcome comedian Ali Siddiq and his I Got A Story To Tell tour to the Theatre’s historic stage at 7:00pm Saturday, June 8.
Ali Siddiq is stand-up comedian and public speaker out of Houston, TX. His unique style of stand-up began behind the walls of incarceration, an incubator for interesting experiences and good stories. In 2022, Ali released two new hour specials… The Domino Effect on YouTube and Unprotected Sets on EPIX. To date, The Domino Effect has more than 10 million views, ranking it among the top 5 most-watched comedy specials of last year. In June, Ali released The Domino Effect 2: Loss – the sequel to his viral stand-up special – on YouTube, which already has more than 3 million views.
People got their first taste of Ali Siddiq when he appeared on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and Live From Gotham, and in 2013 he was named Comedy Central’s “#1 Comic to Watch.” In 2014, Ali impressed comedy enthusiasts with his ability to captivate an audience with his “Mexicans Got On Boots” tale, the descriptive story of a prison riot he told on This Is Not Happening during the first of three appearances. It has received more than 13 million views.
His stories continued with his Half Hour special, which premiered on Comedy Central in the fall of 2016. Immediately following the premier of that special, Comedy Central offered Ali an hour-long special where he performed for inmates live in a Texas jail… sending Ali back to where it all started. Ali Siddiq: It’s Bigger Than These Bars premiered in February 2018. In 2019, Ali was a top 5 finalist on NBC’s Bring The Funny. He also appeared as a regular cast member on the reboot of Punk’d for Quibi.
Additionally, Ali has appeared on several popular podcasts like The Joe Rogan Experience, 85 South, Uncle Joey’s Joint with Joey Diaz, Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank, Bertcast, Pour Minds and many others.
