DorisPlayed by Ali Wong
Despite sharing Katie's dismissive view of the other Westport mombots, Doris is very popular thanks to her non-threatening diversity (she's Asian), her being extremely rich (even by Westport standards), and the fact that, unlike Katie, she can keep her sarcastic comments just between friends. Doris believes in tough, hands-on parenting, and is looking to help Katie discipline her children the Asian way: mostly through yelling and forcing them to consume strange meats.
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 seven months pregnant. According to 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 on Marc Maron's 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 the Opening Ceremony show. She has also joined the cast of Kate Spade's "#Missadventure" series.
Wong's second stand-up special, Hard Knock Wife premiered on Netflix 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. Ali also stars as a series regular on ABC's hit comedy American Housewife.
