SLCene Suggests: Wanda Sykes at Abravanel Hall

by on October 8, 2014



WANDA SYKES, ABRAVANEL HALL, Saturday, Oct. 11, 8 p.m., $45-$55

Wanda Sykes has been making noise in comedy circles since she was part of an Emmy-winning team of writers for The Chris Rock Show in the late ’90s. Appearances on that show led to her own Comedy Central standup specials, acting jobs on shows like The New Adventures of Old Christine and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and a short-lived talk show. More recently she made a splash for coming out at a lesbian while campaigning against Prop 8 in California–leading a lot of new comedy fodder sure to be part of her show in Utah, home of the Mormon Church, which led the way on the anti-gay rights Prop 8 campaign.
