Delicious! Oct 02, 2003
It's hard to describe in this review the comedic genius of Wanda Sykes. Her pacing, voice inflection, body language, and joke & story-telling are perfect throughout this DVD. Using these skills, Wanda connects with the audience in a personal way that elevates her far above the drivel of your every day comic.
Wanda's political observations are poignant and avoid becoming "cheap shots" by applying universal truths to what she sees. For example, President Bush's "sinister laugh" gets compared to that of a villain in a classic cartoon. And, as Wanda opines, is Condoleezza Rice, our National Security Advisor, sharing more than recipes and neighborhood talk at the beauty parlor? These are only a few of the many, many gems in this DVD. It's not overly-political. She makes plenty of common observations that will propel you into fits of laughter
Decent DVD extras include: an additional comedy show by Wanda Sykes; deleted scenes; and various Comedy Central skits.
Buy this now! You will not be disappointed. And, you will want to share this one with your friends.

Constantly Interrupted Television Comedy Oct 05, 2006
By Debbie Mullins
I love Wanda! She's funny in this show but I could not enjoy it due to the fact that there are FREQUENT commercial breaks (sans the ads). This is a TV program taped for Comedy Central---NOT a full length comedy performance. Just when I settled in and became really interested they'd have another break. Just fair warning for all you potential buyers....

Too funny! Sep 28, 2003
Wanda is one of the more intelligent comedians around these days. Her take on politics is really the strength of the show. And I loved how she feels the Pope should have reacted to priests molesting children. The joke about a drunk following another drunk home is hilarious! "I saw him drive into a tree and then I thought "Maybe he lives in the woods"" LOL!

GUT-BUSTIN' FUNNY!!!! Sep 29, 2003
By D. Myers
I stumbled across Wanda's act while channel surfing and I laughed sooooo hard that I immediately jumped up to see if it was available for purcahse. I knew I had to own it to watch over and over again with friends and family. I'm a comedy addict and Wanda is one of the funniest (and intelligent) comedians out there. Believe me when I say you MUST get this one and see for yourself. Wanda's sharp tongue matches her sharp wit and she's well versed on today's politics, among other things. This one's great if you love comedy. Don't miss this one or you'll be sorry. Girlfriend is super-duper funny and absolutely RIGHT on! Buy it. And you might want to run to the potty before the laughter breaks out!

LOOK AT IT !! Sep 13, 2005
After seeing Wanda at the Irvine CA Improv last month, I decided I must own everything Wanda. Both her and Keith Robinson rocked -- go see them live if you have a chance.
I knew I'd seen two Wanda specials, and I looked everywhere for the other one and had no luck; could only find Tongue Untied. Guess what??? BOTH are on this DVD !
Her half hour Comedy Central special is included in the bonus material of this disk !!
Hercules - Hercules - Hercules !
