Important security details

***This is a strict no cell phones allowed show. Upon arrival, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the show. Guests maintain possession of their phones throughout the night, and if needed, may access their phones at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby. All guests are encouraged to print their tickets in advance to ensure a smooth entry process. Anyone caught with a cellphone in the venue will be immediately ejected. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free viewing experience. no cameras or videotapes of any sort are allowed into the venue. any individuals with cameras, video recorders or computers will be asked to leave them outside of the venue. we will not be providing a storage space for such cameras or computers.

How it works:
FAQ's:

Do I maintain possession of my phone at all times?

Yes

Will the case affect my phone in any way?

No

My ticket is on my phone. What do I do?

It’s preferable to have a hard ticket for entry, but Yondr staff will be standing by to unlock your phone so you can access your mobile ticket in order to enter the venue

i'm expecting a call, Where can I check my phone?

Set your phone to vibrate as you enter the venue. You’ll be able to feel your phone vibrate through the Yondr case when you receive calls or texts. You may use their phone throughout the night at designated Phone Use Areas in the venue

What is a Phone Use Area?

Guests are able to use their phones at designated Phone Use Areas in the venue. All phones must be secured in a Yondr case before guests re-enter the performance space

How do I unlock my phone after the show?

Yondr staff will be stationed at all exits to unlock your phone at the end of the show

Does it take long to unlock the cases and leave the venue?

No. Yondr staff are located at each exit to unlock cases. We find that leaving is consistently faster at a phone-free show. It’s amazing how quickly people move when they aren’t busy screen-touching

I didn’t know about the phone policy. What if I don’t want to do this?

This is the show policy, and as a result we cannot allow entry to any guests with cell phones or smart watches if they are not secured in a Yondr case

What happens if there is an emergency in the venue and I can’t access my phone?

All venue staff and security have cell phones and radios. Should an emergency occur, they are trained to implement and execute safety and emergency procedures. Guests should follow all venue instructions and evacuate immediately in the case of an emergency. Yondr Venue Staff will have hand-held unlocking devices outside at a safe distance from the venue

under no circumstances will there be any exceptions to this policy. please be aware before you arrive to the venue.

 
 

About ali wong

Ali Wong is a stand-up comic from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles. Her first Netflix stand-up special BABY COBRA was filmed when she was 7 months pregnant.  According to the New York Magazine, "The special’s arrival on Netflix is the sort of star-making moment that unites the tastes of the unlikeliest fans." Elle applauded it as a "comic genius gem" while Vogue called it "The special that everyone is talking about." Emily Nussbaum hailed it as "funny and refreshingly rude." The day before its premiere, Wong's interview with Marc Maron on his podcast WTF was released. He called the special "the most honest, rawest, funniest special I’ve seen in years."

On September 11, 2016, Wong spoke and walked the runway during New York Fashion Week for Opening Ceremony's show. She has also joined the cast of Kate Spade's "Miss Adventure" films.

Ali’s second stand-up special, HARD KNOCK WIFE premiered on Netflix in on Mother’s Day, 2018. Her feature film, ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE, which she co-wrote and co-stars in with Randall Park, will debut on Netflix in 2019.
