COMEDY: Wanda Sykes


When I see Wanda Sykes, I'm reminded that appearances can be deceiving. Although this woman is petite, she is a ball of fire when she launches into her stand-up comedy act. On Friday, October 5, at 8 p.m. at Auditorium Theatre you can see this talented comedian in action. Careful not to get burned!

Over the course of her career, Sykes has been dubbed one of the funniest stand-up comics by her peers, and ranked as one of Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America. You may know her from "Chris Rock Show," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," or "Evan Almighty." Her diverse experiences will certainly provide some interesting material for her performance in Rochester.

The Auditorium Theatre is located at 885 E. Main St. Tickets cost $29-$69 (without fees) and can be purchased at or by calling 800-745-3000. For more information visit
