Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network will air a pair of new Wanda Sykes comedy specials titled HERLARIOUS, on Saturday, July 13 and Saturday, July 20 at 10pm.

 

Taped before a live studio audience at Harpo Studios in Chicago, the specials will be hosted and produced by Sykes and Page Hurwitz's Push It Productions, in conjunction with Harpo Studios, and will feature appearances by female stand-ups, including Kym Whitley, Andi Smith, Gloria Bigelow, Marina Franklin, Tracey Ashley, Carmen Lynch and Dominique Witten.

In addition to performing new stand up material, Sykes will also feature in a series of comedy shorts that will air during the specials.

This is in addition to the first-look deal with NBC/Universal TV that Sykes and company production partner Page Hurwitz, signed to develop and produce unscripted projects for the network.

Is this the kind of move you were hoping OWN would make?
