THIS SHARP-SHOOTING COMIC HAS SOME WANDA-LUST!
Wanda Sykes is on tour and hits the The Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL February 1, 2019
She earned the 1999 Emmy Award for her writing on The Chris Rock Show. In 2004 Entertainment Weekly named her as one of the 25 funniest people in America. She is well known for her role as Barbara Baran on The New Adventures of Old Christine and for her appearances on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. In November 2009 The Wanda Sykes Show, her own late-night talkshow, premiered on Fox, airing Saturday nights and ended April 2010.
Sykes also has a successful career in film, appearing as the motor-mouthed observer in Monster-in-Law, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Evan Almighty, and License to Wed, and voiced characters in Over the Hedge, Barnyard, Brother Bear 2, Rio, and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Sykes is also a keen LGBT rights activist, and married her French wife partner Alex in 2008, with whom she has two children. In 2004 she authored "Yeah, I Said It", a humorous collection of essays touching on life, family, and current events.
