Johnny Mercer Theatre | Savannah, Georgia

The headlining comedian is an exceptionally talented storyteller who suffers no shortage of clever hooks and tickling twists—not unlike the legendary Richard Pryor himself. Siddiq’s first appearance on-screen was in HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, though he has since launched a successful career with his critically praised specials. Among these are “The Domino Effect,” its sequel, and the hour-long “Ali Siddiq: It's Bigger Than These Bars.” His inevitable breakout kicked off during his time with Comedy Central when he first told his iconic "Mexicans Got On Boots" story. Siddiq was also named the #1 Comic to Watch in 2013, and honestly, he pretty much still is. Now, the stand-up artist has announced his “I Got A Story To Tell” Comedy Tour, a nationwide series set for 47 shows, including one at the timelessly elegant Johnny Mercer Theatre. Book your seats now!

Based out of Houston, Texas, Ali Siddiq works as a comedian who frequently forays into writing and public speaking. His most recent ventures feature hysterical yet hard-hitting anecdotes from his adolescent years up to his eventual incarceration: The Domino Effect (2022) and its sequel, The Domino Effect 2: Loss (2023). Siddiq released these specials on YouTube, attracting millions of views and universal acclaim.
He made his first TV appearance on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam in 2008 and was declared the #1 Comic to Watch by Comedy Central in 2013. During his work with the network’s This is Not Happening series, Siddiq shared his now-iconic "Mexicans Got On Boots" story, a hilarious retelling of a prison riot back in his inmate days. The comedian has kept busy since then, starring in several acclaimed projects such as “Ali Siddiq: It's Bigger Than These Bars” one-hour special and comedy albums “Damaged Goods” and “The Prison Manual.”
