Wanda Sykes On Her New Comedy Special: 'Netflix Came In With A Good Offer'

Wanda Sykes is all smiles as she hits the red carpet at the Netflix Is A Joke screening of her upcoming comedy special Wanda Sykes: Not Normal held at the Raleigh Studios on Saturday (May 11) in Los Angeles.

The 55-year-old actress-comedian then took part in a special Q&A with Ken Jeong, which was moderated by Cheryl Hines.

Wanda recently acknowledged that she once rejected a deal from Netflix over financial terms, but that she changed her mind this time around: “They moved that comma,” she said (via Variety). “I had to step up and say something. I also felt I was low-balled.”

“This time around, Netflix came in with a good offer,” Wanda continued. “It wasn’t Dave Chappelle money but I’m not doing Dave Chappelle business. The offer was commensurate with the business I was doing.”

That same day, Kevin Hart took part in special Q&A panel conversation moderated by Chelsea Handler.
