SOUTH BEND - The University of Notre Dame has announced stand-up comic Ali Wong will join a growing list of performers at Idea Week in April. Event Director Nick Swisher says the show will highlight the fun side of the innovation festival. Wong will perform at the Morris Performing Arts Center in downtown South Bend April 11.

Ali Wong wrote and stars in the feature film “Always Be My Maybe” that will debut on Netflix this year. Wong joins fellow Idea Week headliners including Jim Gaffigan, Michael Carbonaro, Scotty McCreery and Tim McGraw. 

“Part of innovation is breaking down the walls that divide life into narrow categories so we have more opportunities for creative and serendipitous connections,” Swisher said in a news release. “Idea Week aims to unite all of these dimensions and model the energy that they can generate together.”

Idea Week recommends Wong's show for mature audiences. For more info about ticketing and policies click here.
