5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Weekend

Wanda Sykes

Love or hate her, Wanda Sykes doesn't give a, well, you know. Her philosophy of "I'ma Be Me" has been brought on by a life of adversity and adjustment. The comic has tackled everything from race to gender, divorce to cancer, and homosexuality to parenthood, all while bringing it with her to the stage, the screen, or the pen and paper. No topic is too taboo, and no political screwup goes unnoticed when Sykes is in the room, making her the life of the party and the little brassy voice most of us have but don't use.
