Ali Woods is a half-English, half-Scottish comedian, podcaster and content creator.  After a second sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run in 2023, Ali is a refreshing mix of the ‘every man’ and the ‘modern man’, whose sensitivity and genuine interest in men’s mental health gives him a great perspective on the modern ‘lad’ culture which often features in his comedy. Ali is that wonderful blend of comedy with a heart, speaking on topics such as football, the environment, and many social causes close to his heart.

Ali won Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2020 and has appeared on BBC Radio 4, TalkRadio, TalkSport. 

His online comedy sketches under the tag @aliwoodsgigs have gained millions of views and likes, and featured on LadBible and Buzzfeed UK. In 2022, he supported Russell Kane and Axel Blake on tour and in 2024 supported Adam Kay.

Ali sold out Leicester Square theatre earlier this year and has put his first ever comedy special on Youtube, already surpassing 21k views! You can watch his hilarious hour here. 

In 2024, Ali starred on Comedy Central Live and Stand Up Sketch Show.
