Chicago, IL — MSG and Live Nation welcome Wanda Sykes to the Chicago Theatre on September 29th at 7:00 pm. Wanda Sykes has been called "one of the funniest stand up comics" by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America. Tickets On Sale Friday, April 13 at 10 a.m.

Wanda is currently filming The Hot Flashes with Brooke Shields and Daryl Hannah. In 2011, Wanda made a return to HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and in 2010 she starred on her own late night talk show on FOX, "The Wanda Sykes Show". In 2009 her second HBO stand up special "I'ma Be Me" premiered. The special was nominated for two Primetime Emmy awards.

Her first HBO comedy special "Wanda Sykes: Sick and Tired" debuted in 2006 and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. In the fall of 2003 she was seen on Fox's "Wanda at Large", which she wrote, produced and starred in. She also has a one hour Comedy Central special called "Wanda Sykes: Tongue Untied", and can be heard on Comedy Central's "Crank Yankers".

Sykes was seen in the feature films "Evan Almighty," in which she co-starred with Steve Carell, the New Line feature "Monster-In-Law" starring opposite Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda, and was heard in the animated features "Over the Hedge", "Rio" and "Barnyard". Her first book titled Yeah, I Said It, published by Simon & Schuster, hit bookstores in September 2004.

She spent 5 years as a performer and writer for HBO's critically acclaimed "Chris Rock Show", for which she was nominated for three Primetime Emmys and won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special. In 2001, she won the American Comedy Award for Outstanding Female Stand Up Comic. She won three more Emmys, in 2002, 2004 and 2005, for her work on "Inside the NFL".

In 2010 she won a GLAAD award for promoting a good image of equal rights for gays and lesbians.
