Yeah, She Said It

As funny as we all often think we are, there's no way in hell that we'd have enough quality material to comprise a stand-up routine. Unless, maybe, we ventured into what stand-up queen Wanda Sykes calls a "goldmine": our current administration. "This administration has given us so much. [They] should get an award," Wanda Sykes says, explaining that her stand-up includes personal experiences, day-to-day life and, of course, current events. "C'mon, I didn't think it would get any better than 'Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job.' I really didn't think that they were gonna be able to top that," Sykes goes on. "I thought that was it. But then Cheney goes and shoots a 78-year-old man in the head. It's hilarious. It's just genius. He's accidentally shooting his friends, you know, and we have him around the nukes? C'mon!" Hmm, we like her thinking—astute, accessible and flat-out, balls-out if only Team White House could learn those first two qualities. See her perform 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. Tickets are $30. Call 972-404-8501 or visit
Fri., Feb. 24, 8:30 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 25, 7 & 9 p.m.
