Wanda Sykes to Get Her Own Show on Oprah’s Network
Funnywoman Wanda Sykes will be returning to the small screen.
The 49 year-old comedienne is lined up to have a new comedy show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, titled Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious. The one-hour comedy show - hosted and produced by Sykes - will be filmed before a live audience at the same studio where The Oprah Winfrey Show was taped. Numerous up-and-coming female comics - Andi Smith, Gloria Bigelow, Marina Franklin, Tracey Ashley, Carmen Lynch and Dominique Witten - will perform on the show, where Sykes is expected to appear with her guests in a "series of comedy shorts that will air throughout the hour."
Lance Crouther and Alyson Fouse - longtime collaborators of Sykes' - are signed on as writers for the series.
Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious airs Saturday, July 13 and Saturday, July 20 at 10 p.m. on OWN.
