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, meanwhile, got to know her as Larry David’s friend and tough-love-dishing foil in Curb Your Enthusiasm, where she played herself. She’s also held court with her concern for current events on her HBO specials—I’ma Be Me and Sick and Tired—and at the 2009 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
In a voice that’s alternately gruff and squeakily indignant (a quality that has come in handy for her frequent voiceover work), she finds the wider social implications of her life as wife to a Frenchwoman and parent to twins. It seem like familiar territory for a comedian, but Sykes has a knack for “finding new material to mine from that shopworn source of parenthood,” according to Metro Weekly. Still, her obvious love of the stage doesn’t stop her from continuing her work in film (Evan Almighty), television (Black-ish), and more television (Real Husbands of Hollywood and Alpha House, to name just two).
The Fine Print
About Chrysler Hall
Set behind a massive reflecting pool, Chrysler Hall's aesthetic encapsulates classic elegance and futuristic comfort with a facade that conjures the Parthenon by way of extraterrestrial visitors. Founded in 1972, the performing arts center has grown to become Hampton Roads' premiere venue, and more than 150,000 patrons pass the minimalist columns every year. Chrysler Hall is home to such culture creators as the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Virginia Arts Festival, Norfolk Forum, and the Generic Theater.
