      Milestones
      1987 Began her stand-up comedy career
      1997 After meeting Chris Rock on the comedy circuit, joined the writing staff and cast of his popular HBO series "The Chris Rock Show"; stayed with series until 2000
      1998 Made film debut in the Sundance-screened independent "Tomorrow Night", directed by "The Chris Rock Show" co-writer Louis CK
      1999 Had a recurring role on Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO)
      2000 Acted in "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps"
      2001 Reteamed with Rock in "Pootie Tang" (based on a sketch from Rock's show) and the "Heaven Can Wait" retread "Down to Earth"
      2001 Was a regular on the NBC midseason replacement series "The Downer Channel"; also a member of the series' writing staff
      2003 Starred in her own sitcom for FOX, in "Wanda at Large"
      2005 Cast as Jane Fonda's long-suffering personal assistant in the comedy "Monster-in-Law"
      2006 Voiced a sassy skunk named Stella in the animated comedy "Over the Hedge" based on the comic strip by Michael Fry and T. Lewis
      Cast as Luke Wilson's boss in the Ivan Reitman superhero comedy "Super Ex" (lensed 2005)
      Raised in the Washington, DC/Maryland area
      A scene-stealing comedic actress and celebrated stand-up star, Wanda Sykes took her fed-up ranting style of telling-it-like-it-is comedy to a new level.

      Sykes had her best big screen role to date when she appeared as Ruby, the straight-talking assistant to Jane Fonda's high-strung TV journalist in the comedy "Monster-In-Law" (2005): responsible for many of the film's funniest lines, Sykes adroitly snatched scenes from Fonda and Jennifer Lopez throughout the film.
