    Okay, I’m going to rep my hood — DC. Why is that most comedians love to come here and record comedy specials for HBO? Because we know what’s funny. Ask Chris Rock, Kings of Comedy etc. — DC is where it’s at.

    Looking forward to checking out Wanda tonight. She’s gonna kill it.

      Are you going to be there, or watch it on HBO? If you will be in house, please take some pics with your phone. 🙂

      I got her book for my husband a while ago, and then we ended up running into her @ LAX. She was really cool and talked to us for a few minutes.
