Clips from comedian, writer, actress and, now, talk show host Wanda Sykes as she promotes her new late-night debut. ''The Wanda Sykes Show'' is scheduled to run on November 7, 2009. She is best known for her comedy appearances on programs like ''Chris Rock,'' ''Curb Your Enthusiasm,'' ''Adventures of Old Christine,'' and her new HBO special which was filmed here in DC in August. She married her wife, Alex, in October of 2008, but was previously married to a man for more than six years. Sykes came out publicly as a lesbian soon after the passage of Proposition 8, the law that repealed same-sex marriages in California. She caused a stir in Washington with a Press Dinner monologue that took conservative Republicans to task for their hateful criticism of President Barack Obama. More clips from her test shows can be found at the Fox website. (The Wanda Sykes Show)
