And now, he's bigger than borders. Siddiq began his stand-up career while incarcerated in a Texas prison, and he's come across the pond to show London that there's no crowd he can't impress.

Ali has headlined multiple comedy clubs around the US, and is able to engage audiences of every demographic, leaving them laughing hysterically. His comedy special, It’s Bigger Than These Bars recently debuted on Comedy Central, and his Half Hour premiered on the network last year. Siddiq has four albums available for download on iTunes.
