Wanda Sykes can check off every important voter demographic in the upcoming election. She’s black, she’s female, she’s gay and she’s even in an interracial marriage. So it makes sense that the Logo network, which features programming geared to the LGBT audience, would tap her to do an election special. The second part of the NewNowNext Vote with Wanda Sykes” airs on Logo on Monday night at 10:30 p.m., the night before what may be the country’s most important election ever.
Sykes will use her already well-known skills for political satire (she was the first ever black female to MC the White House Correspondent’s Dinner) on the show, which features a roundtable format and bipartisan experts who talk about all the issues that are significant in this election from gay marriage to the economy to immigration.
"I'm excited to be working with Logo, the network that offers a voice to the LGBT community,” Sykes said in a statement. “These specials will be thought-provoking, exciting and the perfect forum to discuss important issues facing our community. Plus, it is Logo so maybe I'll get to dress in drag!"
