Smart-mouthed and sassy Wanda Sykes visits Maui in September.
The WANDA SYKES ~ I’ma Be Me show on Maui takes place on Friday, September 9, 2011 at 8 p.m. in the Castle Theater at the MACC.
Sykes’ stand up comedy has earned her starring roles in television’s The New Adventures of Old Christine, her own late-night talk show The Wanda Sykes Show on FOX, and an HBO comedy special I’ma Be Me.
The Maui show will include material from Sykes’ recent national tour with topics including politics, karma, and the pressures of being a woman and the perks of getting older.
Her witty comedy has earned her peer accolades and ranking by Entertainment Weekly as one of the 25 Funniest People in America.
