Could Become My Favorite Comedy Show
4 April 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There's only been two episodes of this show, but, from those two, this show is one of the best comedies - definitely the best comedy to come out of the last few years.

Wanda Sykes plays Wanda Hawkins. She lives in the same apartment building with her sister-in-law (Tammy Lauren) and her sister-in-law's son. Her wit and sarcasm lands her a job at a local TV station as a reporter.

Wanda Sykes is HILARIOUS. Both episodes kept me laughing from start to finish. If you aren't watching it, I really suggest you do. With the crazy stuff going on today, we need a good laugh. And this show delivers with excess. It's not just a show for black or white, young or old, etc.

Great show so far. Has the makings of an all-time best comedy show.

Rating: 10/10
