Emmy Award-Winning Comedian Wanda Sykes Returns to Treasure Island Theatre Sept. 9
One of Entertainment Weekly’s “25 Funniest People in America,” Wanda Sykes brings her wry, intelligent stand-up comedy to the Treasure Island Theatre, Sept. 9 at 9 p.m. 

Already one of the busiest women in comedy, Wanda Sykes is only gaining steam. In addition to her recurring role on ABC’s hit comedy “Black-ish,” Sykes recently guest starred on Showtime’s “House of Lies” and returned as the voice of “Granny” in “Ice Age: Collision Course.” She will co-star on the upcoming ABC soccer comedy “Dream Team” opposite Justin Long and appear in “Bad Moms” with Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. Sykes has also signed on to Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s recently announced mother-daughter comedy.

Sykes spent five years as a performer and writer for HBO’s critically acclaimed “Chris Rock Show” where she won an Emmy Award in 1999.  Other television appearances include “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Crank Yankers,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and as the star of Fox’s “Wanda at Large,” which Sykes also wrote and produced.

In 2004, Sykes released her first book “Yeah, I Said It,” a hilarious collection of essays touching on life, family and current events.

Sykes has also filmed two successful comedy specials for HBO: “Wanda Sykes; Sick and Tired,” in 2006 and “I’ma Be Me,” in 2009. The second special was nominated for two 2010 Emmys. Later that year, Sykes went on to star on her own late night talk show on FOX, “The Wanda Sykes Show.” Her comedy special “Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious,” featuring appearances by actors Kristin Chenoweth, Wayne Brady and Cheryl Hines, aired on The Oprah Winfrey Network in 2013 and 2014.

Sykes’ feature film credits include “Evan Almighty” with Steve Carrell, “Monster-In-Law” and “My Super Ex-Girlfriend.” She has lent her voice to several animated features including “Over the Hedge, “The Barnyard,” “Rio” and the “Ice Age” movies.

Tickets are available starting at $59.95, plus tax and handling fees, and can be purchased online at, or by calling the box office at 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722. Guests must be 18 years or older to attend.
