The Wanda Sykes Show: Saturdays on FOX

10 Nov

The Wanda Sykes Show premiered this past Saturday and the early reviews are mixed (I haven’t had a chance to watch yet). Hulu’s got the episode up now, so check it out let us know your thoughts on the first episode:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Also… Last week, The AV Club had the chance to sit down with Sykes to talk about the show and a host of other topics:

The A.V. Club: What’s your vision for The Wanda Sykes Show?

Wanda Sykes: We’re not reinventing the late night talk show thing. We’re just going to be a little blend. We’re taping in front of a live audience. I will do a monologue, which will hopefully feel more like a live stand-up performance and not just a string of random jokes. I have a sidekick, Keith Robinson, who’s very funny. I’ve known Keith for over 20 years; he’s my best friend. And we’re going to have panel discussions. There’ll be a bar; we will have alcohol. We’ll play some inappropriate games, and I don’t know, hopefully there’ll be some type of live sacrifice. If it’s a good show, at the end I will be just worn out.

AVC: Have you gotten any advice from other talk show hosts about what to do going in?

WS: Well, I’m bringing some experience from when I worked as a writer on The Chris Rock Show. I learned so much over there, and I loved the way Chris ran that show and set the show up. It was a very writer-driven show. So that’s what I’m trying to create here on my show.

Wanda Sykes HBO Special: Ima Be Me

17 Sep

Comedian Wanda Sykes is going to be all over your television this fall. Her new late-night show on Fox premieres in November, but you can catch her before then in her upcoming stand-up special, Ima Be Me, airing October 10th on HBO.

Taped in August in Washington, DC, Sykes will of course hit all the major topics since her last major special back in 2006, like the Obamas, the economy, her coming out of the closet, and more.

In addition to the special and her late-night talk-show, Ms. Sykes is also reprising her guest roles on Curb Your Enthusiasm and the CBS hit, The New Adventures of Old Christine.
