Tim Bright Scores Ali Siddiq’s Comedy Central Special ‘It’s Bigger Than These Bars’
Tim Bright scores Houstan-based comedian Ali Siddiq’s new Comedy Central stand-up special ‘It’s Bigger Than These Bars.’ The comedy special, which premiered on February 23rd, is Ali Siddiq’s first hour-long special for Comedy Central. Filmed at the Bell County Jail in Central Texas, the stand-up special includes interviews with inmates and prison staff, and is significant because it marks the comedian first return to a prison since serving six years of a 15-year prison sentence for drug trafficking.
Ali Siddiq has mentioned that his goal has always been to make a bigger impact with his comedy and encourage inmates “who’ve been locked up and thought they couldn’t achieve something.” The comedian first began honing his stand-up craft while in prison.
