Comedian Ali Saddiq began doing comedy when he was serving time in Texas. Recently, he returned to jail right here in Bell County, but with a camera crew in tow.

Saddiq's Comedy Central Special "It's bigger Than These Bars" is scheduled to air the evening of February 23rd.

The Comedy Central special was filmed on location at the Bell County Jail. You'll see Ali entertaining the inmates and the guards as he retells some of the lessons he learned during his time in prison.
