Finally a comedy tour fighting for the rights of the handsome! When three men were deported from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome, UCSD graduate Tim Lee -- who has long suffered from "player hate" himself -- sprung into action. He recruited comedians Monty Franklin and Andrew Norelli to his cause, knowing them to be openly handsome comedians. Their mission: To inspire men to embrace their own handsomeness and lobby for the recognition of "player hating" as a crime. It would be nice if they could someday tour Saudi Arabia without being deported, also. These sexy stand-ups manage to be both funny and attractive at the same time and serve as an inspiration for everyone. Learn More

Wanda was great. If you loved her HBO special. then go see her tour... it was basically the same thing (for better or worse). The Mountain Winery was really quite an amazing venue and Goldstar hooked us up with close seats in the second tier, so it really made the difference. Go figure that someone from the right wing didn't like her comedy and clearly didn't know what he was getting himself into.

This is a great venue - I suggest going online and purchasing a dinner package, too. The food and service were wonderful. The seats we got were great - they were in the back but dead center and not obstructed at all. Wanda Sykes was a BLAST!
Wanda Sykes has been called "one of the funniest stand-up comics" by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America. Her smart-witted stand-up has sent her career in many different areas.
Sykes recently wrapped the first season of her own late night talk show on FOX. The Wanda Sykes Show aired on Saturday nights. In October of 2009 she was seen in her second HBO stand-up special I’ma Be Me. Sykes also played Barb in the CBS comedy The New Adventures of Old Christine for five seasons.
Her first HBO comedy special, Wanda Sykes: Sick and Tired, debuted in October 2006 and was nominated for a 2007 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. It was taped before a live audience at the Moore Theatre in Seattle. Wanda Sykes: Sick and Tired features material from her recent national tour. Among the topics covered are: politics, gay marriage, karma, healthcare, racial profiling, the pressure of being a woman and the perks of getting older.
Sykes was seen in the feature films Evan Almighty, the sequel to Bruce Almighty, in which she co-starred with Steve Carell, the New Line feature Monster-In-Law starring opposite Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda, and was heard in the animated feature Over The Hedge for Dreamworks as well as The Barnyard for Paramount Pictures. She can also be seen co-starring with Luke Wilson and Uma Thurman in the romantic comedy My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Sykes starred in and produced the Comedy Central show Wanda Does It in which she tried various non-showbiz jobs. Her first book, titled Yeah, I Said It, published by Simon and Schuster, hit bookstores in September 2004. Yeah, I Said It is a hilarious collection of essays touching on life, family and current events.
