Wanda Sykes has been called "one of the funniest standup comics" by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America. Sykes has been seen on several television shows over the past two years, last year making a return to HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” starring opposite Larry David. In 2010, she starred in her own late night talk show on Fox, “The Wanda Sykes Show” and was heard in the Fox animated feature Rio as the Goose. In October of 2009, her second HBO stand-up special “I’ma Be Me” premiered where she tackled topics like the first black president, gay cruises, being a new mom and aging. The special was nominated for two 2010 Primetime Emmy awards: Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special and Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special. July 2012 she was heard in the animated feature “Ice Age: Continental Drift” as Granny. Wanda Sykes returns to The Grand after a sell-out performance in 2011.
