She's hard to watch, is a doody-head, and you can smell her B.O. through a television screen. Syke! Okay, now that we've got all the third graders' attention, let's talk some Wanda Sykes. She looks as cuddly as a koala bear but has a dry, sarcastic comedic timing that snaps like a turtle. Or a shark. Or, hell, even a female murderess.
You've certainly seen Sykes everywhere -- from Curb Your Enthusiasm, to Evan Almighty, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and in her specials like Wanda At Large and Wanda Does It.
We caught up with Sykes right before her appearance this Friday at the Fillmore Miami Beach for the South Beach Comedy Festival. She chatted about the term "that's so gay," how she met her partner, and why girls who hang out on street corners aren't necessarily hookers.
