Wanda Sykes Presents HERLARIOUS
Airs Saturday, July 13 and Saturday July 20 at 10pm ET/PT
Award-winning comedian Wanda Sykes presents an evening of non-stop laughs in this all-female comedy show taped in front of a live audience at Harpo Studios in Chicago. Turning the former home of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" into a lively comedy venue, the handpicked lineup includes special guest appearances by celebrity guest stars, actress Brooke Shields and Kym Whitley from OWN's popular reality series "Raising Whitley." Sykes will also appear with her guests in a series of comedy sketches that will air in between comedy acts performed by today's best emerging comics, Andi Smith, Gloria Bigelow, Marina Franklin, Tracey Ashley, Carmen Lynch and Dominique Witten.
Executive Producers of "HERLARIOUS" are Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz (Push It Productions) and Jill Barancik (Harpo). Longtime Sykes collaborators Lance Crouther ("Good Hair," "Wanda At Large") and Alyson Fouse ("The Wanda Sykes Show," "Everybody Hates Chris") are writers on the project.
