Product Description

Wanda Sykes: I'ma Be Me (DVD)

Wanda Sykes returns for her second HBO special, to be taped before a live audience at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C. this August for an October debut. The special will feature the outspoken comic performing material featured in her current national stand-up tour.

Amazon.com

Blunt and exasperated, standup comedian and sitcom star Wanda Sykes launches into politics, race, and sex without hesitation or fear--and sometimes talks about all three at once. This is not comedy for the easily offended, liberal or conservative. Stalking the stage in a metallic silver jacket and vest, Sykes talks about how having a black president has eased the need to be dignified for the sake of the collective African-American image (only she says that in far more pungent and far funnier language) before gliding through such wide-ranging topics as Somali pirates, the metric system, and leaf blowers. Unsurprisingly, a big chunk of her performance tackles her life as a lesbian, but Sykes avoids anything sanctimonious or preachy. Instead, she contrasts being gay and being black and decides that being gay is harder because she never had to come out as black--then she rattles off a sidesplitting routine about what that might have been like. Kegel exercises, Michael Jackson, impotence--it's all fair game. Her final segment about getting her first bikini wax is both hysterical and cringe inducing. Sykes's humor comes with a strong dose of upfront honesty (about herself and the crazy contradictions of American culture); anyone who likes that sort of thing should check out Wanda Sykes: I'ma Be Me. --Bret Fetzer

I'ma Be Me

I am a 76 year old retired white educator who has NEVER written a Fan Letter in her entire life. Wanda Sykes is the BEST comedian EVER. This DVD of a recent event proves my opinion. Her event was over an hour long without a single break, not even for a sip of water. Her topics are current and extremely original. One simply cannot hold back laughter even when watching her in an empty room with only two cats for company. I sing Wanda's praises to all who will listen!

I look forward to her amazing future in comedy.

This is one of her best shows. Watching the audience get such a thrill out of her routines made it even funnier. She tackles any subject and makes it hilarious, from President Obama to having children, and so on. She can find humor in anything, and she takes her audience along for the ride, laughing hysterically all the way.

LOVED IT. I saw this on HBO twice and loved it SO MUCH! This woman knows how to fine tune an act to comedy perfection. Her Saturday talk show is just ok. I preordered it as Xmas gifts even though it would come out in 2010.

I watched this special on HBO three times and laughed at all the same parts over and over. I knew immediately I was going to have to purchase my own copy. Wanda Sykes is funny on so many levels, as a woman, as a lesbian, as an African American and most importantly just as an observer of life. I've never been such a great fan of her before, but she deserves an Emmy for this performance. Best stand up performance I've seen since Chris Rock's Bring the Pain.

I originally saw part of this show on HBO when I was out of town. The part that I did catch was so darn funny that I immediately started looking for the DVD. Little did I know at the time that her show was "new" on HBO and no DVD was out (yet). As soon as I found it on Amazon, I pre-ordered right away. I CANNOT wait to get it and watch the full show. I bet that I could burn as many calories laughing at her jokes as I can being at the gym for an hour!!

Wanda, you're awesome! Loved you on Crank Yankers!

Wanda Sykes is just hilarious and constantly keeps you laughing throughout. This is her second comedy special for HBO done in 2009 and she comments on Barack Obama's presidency, her new life in a interracial lesbian marriage, Bikini waxing and being a performer on a all gay cruise ship with 3,200 couples. She is amazingly funny, honest and provocatively rough around the edges. Her ability to entertain is enormous and she is a strong and fearless woman. Wanda has much strength to admire, sharp wit to enjoy and it all comes out in fearless comedy.

Of all the Wanda Sykes stand-up comedy specials this one is my favorite. It's incredibly intelligent, witty, opinionated, edgy but especially honest. Filmed in Washington, D.C. this performance deals with the politics of today, our new President, the first lady but the funniest and most poignant parts of the show are about Wanda herself. She comes out of the closet and talks about aging, married life, her children and the daily complications that her new life creates. I love stand-up comedy and Wanda Sykes is one of the best comedians of the new millenium. She always brings something fresh to each of her acts and this one ranks at the top. The title of I'MA BE ME is absolutely on the mark. She is proud of her life, her accomplishments and she isn't afraid to share that with her audience.

This is one of the funniest stand up acts I have ever seen. Wanda covers everything from Obama to having kids and makes them all hysterical. Highly recommend...I've watched it over and over and it never gets old. Prepare to get an ab workout from laughing!!
