My favorite lines from tonight's Wanda Sykes shows in Clearwater
Comic Wanda Sykes just destroyed a crowd of 1,941 at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater tonight, veering from in-your-face material about her wife and her new twins to in-your-face material about politics and life.
The crowd, which seemed to feature lots of gay fans, erupted into applause whenever she talked about her family, shouting their love during any slow spot. There's weren't many, as Sykes offered the kind of explicit jokes about President Obama she wouldn't have dared broach during the White House Correspondents' Dinner last month.
Here's a sample:
"I knew something was wrong with the economy when the shampoo girl at my salon closed on a six bedroom house."
"You know the economy is bad when illegals start complaining that Americans are taking their jobs. White peopel out their watching their own babies...It's disgusting."
"With a black president, I can relax...I can dance in public. I can buy a whole watermelon now."
"I know what they're waiting for...(the press) is waiting for (Michelle Obama) to get pissed one night and throw all The President's (stuff) out on the lawn."
"With two babies, you're too tired (for sex). Even if we tried, we'd both fall asleep."
"I'm 45, so when we look for schools for our kids, we can check out nusing homes for me."
"With two kids, I tell my wife, if you ever catch me in another woman's bed, I'm just there for a nap."
