That Wanda Sykes is a hoot!
Did you catch her monologue on Jay Leno the other night?
In one hilarious bit, the quirky comedienne joked about the bid to make marijuana legal in California, so the government impodr a tax - and likewise - profit from sales of the ubiquitious "killer" social weed during these tough economic times.
"Heck, they only allow us to water our lawns twice a week. How can they possibly cultivate any primo marijuana with that?"
On another occasion, she opted to use use the race card when faced with a problem to resolve with the big-chinned talk-show host with the infectious grin.
"We get to use two race cards a year since there is a Black president," she dead-panned to a roar from the rapt audience on the edge of their seat.
One of my favorite jokes was about day-workers in California.
"Things are so tough, that illegal immigrants are complaining that white folks are taking their jobs."
If you missed the schtick, then tune in tonight to HBO, and catch her special.
Titled - "Wanda Sykes: I'ma Be Me" - the live! performance was taped at the Warner Theatre in Washington (D.C.).
If you're sensitive to zany, off-beat - and/or slightly blue (!) material - then surf to re-runs of The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, or bill-of-fare like that!
