Sykes will debut her routine at the Mirage Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 at 10 p.m. inside the Terry Fator theater.
Sykes started her career performing in front of the live audience at a talent showcase in Washington, D.C. She was nominated for three Emmy Awards as a performer and a writer on the popular “Chris Rock Show.” In 1999 she won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special for that.
Sykes first stand-up appeared on Comedy Central. Her second stand-up special “Wanda Sykes: Sick and Tired,” which aired on HBO, was nominated for a 2007 Primetime Emmy award. Her third stand-up special was nominated for two Primetime Emmy awards. Her sharp tongue and witty comebacks hit home run every time.
She has also starred in several movies, including “Evan Almighty,” “Monster-in-Law,” “Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps,” and was the voice over Bessy the cow in ”The Barnyard.” She quipped alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Fox’s sitcom “The New Adventures of Old Christine.” Sykes currently has her own show on HBO “Wanda Sykes Show.”
So, go to Vegas, win some money, see the show and leave happy. And don’t worry, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
