Her 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.” It has received public praise from Jim GaffiganBill BurrAmy SchumerQuestloveJay DuplassDamon Wayans Jr.Randall ParkW. Kamau BellAdam CarollaJohn MulaneyTaylor Momsen,Meghan McCainJanet Mock and Steven YeunElle 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’sMiss Adventure” films.
