the hilarious wanda sykes!
With an increasing number of stand-up specials made especially for its roster (over 200 can be found on-site already), it makes sense that streaming heavyweight Netflix is taking its golden comedy formula to the stage. Finally taking place from April 28 to May 8, the first-ever Netflix Is A Joke Fest will leave LA in stitches at over 100 venues citywide, featuring the biggest and brightest established comics, as well as up and coming performers that are just itching to be discovered by new fans. Don't miss Wanda Sykes when she hits the Orpheum Theatre in April!
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 talk show, premiered on Fox, airing Saturday nights and ended April 2010.
