Good but not great

Wanda started out very funny, but I kind of felt like it was downhill from there. As other reviewers have noted, it was a lot about her family. It was entertaining, but I didn’t have a lot of laugh out loud moments. And it was definitely short at one hour, but that’s what I anticipated based on her other comedy specials. I wish it had been funnier though. ... Read more


Wanda Sykes LOL Fest

Tarrytown Music Hall was an absolute gem! Our balcony seats offered a fantastic view, creating a cozy, intimate vibe. I adore these settings; it feels like the performer is inviting you into their personal space. Wanda's performance had me laughing so hard that I almost needed my inhaler! The audience's love and warmth elevated the experience. Wanda was great, impressive as always, and honestly, nothing surprised me; so regarding political satire, I'd say if you're bothered by a performer's political stance (usually evident before buying tickets), it's wise to skip the show. Comedy is meant to be just that—a show filled with laughs. I felt entirely comfortable, but in today's political climate, you can't be surprised by jokes from any side. Lighten up people. About the venue, before you go, please take a look at the area, grab dinner before or after, and make sure you familiarize yourself with the parking situation. ... Read more
