Comedy & Stand-up in Washington

Just Announced

Wanda Sykes coming to Washington!

Booking from November 7th

The Monster-In-law actress and comedian is acknowledged as one of the funniest stand-up comics by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America. Known for her lively, machine-gun fire wit that has seen her play the straight-talking sidekick in various film and tv projects, Sykes' repertoire focuses on wide-ranging subjects including gay marriage, racism and even federal government overspending. You name it, she'll most likely have an opinion - and a cuss - for it. Read more Buy Tickets.
