Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"And I'm glad you said it, Wanda! Keep on entertaining and empowering us."
-- Tavis Smiley

"Throughout my career I've heard comedians say...that 'chicks ain't funny.' But then there's Wanda...one of my favorite practitioners of stand-up comedy from any gender."
-- The Artist Formerly Known as Dave Chappelle

"Considering all the endless nights Wanda and I have spent clubbing 'til dawn, I have no earthly idea how she had time to complete this book, but all fans of great literature are thankful she did."
-- Bob Costas

"I laughed out loud all the way through."
-- Jane Fonda

Présentation de l'éditeur

Wanda Sykes reduces people to tears -- tears of laughter. She's done so as a stand-up comic, a sitcom star, and a sports commentator for years now, and in the process she's gained a huge fan base nationwide. Now that she's conquered television, she's applying her genius to her first book, Yeah, I Said It. Here, Wanda presents hilarious and uncensored commentary on sex, family, politics, celebrities, and much more than she could ever say in a sound bite.
But then again, she's a genius with a sound bite too. Here's what she says about men and football. "I used to think that football took place in this overbearing male-only environment that bled masculine domination. But the more I attend, the more I realize these football fans could actually be experiencing the straight man's gay pride parade. You see men painting each other's faces in bright colors. You see men proud to wear another man's last name on their shirt. You see some men wear no shirt at all....Hot wieners on every corner as you walk up to the main competition. Men open the back of their trunks for a little tailgating."
Here's what she says about women: "Women are taking stripper classes in hopes their men will stop going to strip clubs....You can't compete with those strippers....You gotta have...the stripper mentality. In other words, the ability to lie like a dog for a measly buck. A stripper will tell your man anything for a dollar. 'Oow, I thought you were Brad Pitt.' "
An uproarious and irreverent collection from one of today's foremost comedic talents, Yeah, I Said It is Wanda Sykes at her uncensored best. Here, she channels her sharp wit into funny bits on the truth as she sees it from the halls of government in Washington, D.C., to the red carpets and boardrooms of Hollywood. Imbued with her razor-sharp voice, these essays showcase Sykes's sidesplitting candor and her trademark brand of comedy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Very funny but boring to read 17 novembre 2004
Par N. Gorman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I purchased this book the day after I watched Wanda Sykes' appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She delivered several comments from her book. Her delivery was flawless and she was hilarious.

Reading the book is much different. The material is very funny but it's difficult to read it without experiencing the timing and emotion of Ms. Sykes' delivery.

If she or her publishers ever read these comments I would strongly suggest that she RECORD THIS BOOK ON TAPE. I logged on tonight to see if the book was available on tape and am disappointed that it isn't.

Five stars for material but a deduction of two for format.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yeah She Said It And Could Give A **BLEEP** Who Likes It 25 octobre 2004

I thought Wanda's book was funny. Since I'm already familiar with Wanda's brand of humor that helped because as I was reading I couldn't help but to hear her delivery. I think anybody can enjoy this book. Wanda touches on everything from politics to strip clubs with her no-time-for-nonsense humor. I hope the book does better than some of her tv shows have because she is talented. Go on, help Wanda out, buy this book!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny As Hell! 28 septembre 2005
Par Anastasia - Publié sur Amazon.com

I caught this book at the library, and I had to read it.

Some points that she brought up (politics, marriage, celebrities, and kids were my fave topics) were so hilarious, it seemed like she was talking to me. I couldn't put the book down. It's funny how she even did the word count. I have to admit, the cussing was a little much, but like every comedian, it's their trademark, as well as the way they talk. She isn't afraid to type out anything!

This is a good book, especially if you want to see how a lot of women think--or I should say in this case, Wanda.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very funny! 13 janvier 2005
Par Blaine Greenfield - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've always enjoyed the comedy of Wanda Sykes and am particularly glad she is a favorite recurring guest on perhaps my favorite TV show, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM . . . so when

I saw she had written her first book, YEAH, I SAID IT, I got hold of it and managed to devour it in one sitting.

It was that good!

Sykes has much to say about women, politics, football, dating, Martha Stewart, and a whole lot more . . . yet it's her take on gay marriage that got me to truly appreciate how insightful she also is . . . she notes:

I don't think marriage needs to be protected from the same-sex couples. The biggest threat to marriage is divorce. Divorce is kicking marriage's ass. Divorced is what ruined my marriage, not

Stacy and Anna getting hitched. Most marriages end in divorce. If Bush and the Christian conservatives really want to protect marriage they should propose a constitutional amendment to

ban divorce. Divorce is in direct opposition to their Christian beliefs more so than gay marriage. . . . Marriage should be like the Mafia--once you're in, you're in.

Many other parts of YEAH, I SAID IT got me thinking . . . yet others got me laughing out loud . . . among them:

When we'd go on vacation, he'd want to ride jet skis; I'd want to get a nap by the pool. I guess when you reach a certain age you don't even entertain the idea of doing something that if it goes wrong it could be life threatening. You figure if you've made it this far, you gotta save what life you got left.

Here's a tip for you guys. When a woman asks you to do something and prefaces it with "when you get a chance," or "when you get around to it," just stop what you're doing and do the sh*t right then and there. When we ask, we really don't mean when you get a chance, when you feel like it,

or when you get around to it. No, we mean right now. If you do it, you'll save yourself a lot of time and grief and a lot of arguments.

When you call me, do me a favor. Leave me messages saying why you called. Do not leave a message telling me to call you, because I won't. "Hey, Wanda, it's Dino. Call me." Why? I sense no urgency in your message. At least mention jail, or bail, or drinks or something. Don't be all vague or you will not hear from me. I figure if you're just calling to talk, you'll call back.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Sometimes comedy does not translate well in print 31 décembre 2012
Par maroru - Publié sur Amazon.com
Wanda Sykes is a very funny comedian...when one is watching her stand up. However, that doesn't mean that she is funny in print. This is the problem with most of comedy books , after a while it gets tiresome ,boring and you're looking forward to see the end of it. In the case of YEAH , I SAID IT ; gets so boring after a few pages into the book .
The book is a lot of what she is done in her stand ups, little stories about politics, celebrities and everyday stuff. A lot of cursing and gross commentaries.Like i said one thing is hearing about it and another thing it's reading about it.
I don't know what i was expecting ,but this was a drag !!!
