There are many classic comedy routines, but none is more lauded than the one in which someone walks toward a banana peel and places it in the garbage. Enjoy throwaway gags with this GrouponLive deal to see Wanda Sykes at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts on Sunday, October 28. For $30, you get one ticket for balcony seating to the show at 7 p.m. (up to a $61.80 value, including all fees).

Since her television debut on The Chris Rock Show in 1997, Wanda Sykes has firmly established her singular comedic voice: a combination of an astute political wit; a razor-sharp tongue; and a straightforward, conversational tone. Another segment of comedy fans got to know her as Larry David’s friend and tough-love-dishing foil in Curb Your Enthusiasm, where she played herself, a role she won after a lifetime of diligent preparation. She’s also held court with her concern for current events on her HBO specials—I'ma Be Me and Sick and Tired, which touched on race, gender, and sexuality—and at the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner, where she chided President Obama for extending his commitment to transparency to shirtless photos. In a voice that’s alternately gruff and squeakily indignant, she finds the wider social implications of her life as wife to a Frenchwoman and parent to twins—aiding her knack for “finding new material to mine from that shopworn source of parenthood,” as Metro Weekly said of a performance earlier this year.
