Highly recommended, SICK AND TIRED (2006) is comedic great, Wanda Sykes's first solo HBO special. Filmed in Seattle's Moore Theater before a crowd that howls with laughter for the entire 60-minute performance, it was directed by the legendary Keith Truesdell.

In it, Sykes perfectly delivers the hilarious persona she's developed over years of appearing on Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Chris Rock Show, to name just a few of her performances. Like a female curmudgeon, Sykes bemoans her unique frustrations with life, Medicare, politicians, scientists, old people, men and everything in between, including NASA.

In the craziest, cranky-baby voice, Sykes steps out of the traditional funny girl role played by popular comediennes like Ellen DeGeneres, Sarah, Silverman, Margaret Cho and Mo'Nique. Instead she offers the viewer an insider's look into a woman's mind - from an almost male perspective. But it's not like she's remotely masculine herself.

Supremely feminine, Sykes is a girl's girl: sassy, blunt, confident, practical and an extraordinary wordsmith. Naturally inclined toward confessing every disturbing thought a woman could ever have, she is a goldmine of information for men interested in decoding how women really think. And for women, she is the fantasy best friend: smart, chatty and undoubtedly a great chick to hit the town with.

Watching SICK AND TIRED makes me realize that getting to know Wanda Sykes is like learning to use the Internet. In no time at all, you wonder how you ever lived without her.

Wanda had me laughing so hard the whole show. It was great. I've seen it probably 5 times already and the last half of her show will have you laughing so hard it felt like my stomach would bust open. She is so down to earth. You will love this show!!!

If comedians would just figure out that it doesn't take foul language to be funny, this would be a five star rating. Wanda is very funny,

I really love Wanda's comedic style. This performance was one of her best but the show ran a little short than I would have liked. Some folks were surprised at her blue side but that is Wanda for you she doesn't hold back. I know some people don't like hearing about politics from comediens but when you think about it that very subject dominates so much of today so how could she not mention anything. Her take on porn is so damn funny including the right and wrong places to watch it according to her. Her experience with swimming with the dolphins is one of the funniest things I might have ever heard. This dvd is a keeper!!!

Wanda Sykes "Sick and Tired" is refreshing if you are a black woman -- or any race of woman. She is wickedly hilarious about women, the realities of race and women in this country, and the Bush Administrations' policies and personalities. Wonderful, biting social critique that perhaps only women who are not religious freaks or anti-profanity can truly resonant with. If you're hung up on profanity, don't watch this; it's not meant for you. If you're a right winger, don't watch this; you'll miss Sykes social critique entirely. If you're interested in a woman speaking the truth, then this hour of stand-up comedy is for you.I will watch this many times over, belly laughing the entire time.

Wanda Sykes out did herself in this performance. Like most people, I thoroughly enjoy a gut wrenching belly laugh, and that's what Wanda brings through this video. Yes it's a few years old, but she starts talking about some historical perspectives in her cynically/comic manner, and you know which buffoon she's talking about. If you want to sit and laugh hysterically for an hour+ this is the Video for you.. {note, however, there are age appropriate materials in her humor, so I would not suggest this as "family night" material.
