Wanda Sykes to Wake Up Reno with Comedy at Silver Legacy

Wanda SykesAfter multiple Emmy Awards and Comedy Central specials, comedienne Wanda Sykes is still one of the funniest sidekicks and stand up acts in the country.  From writing for other famous comedians to doing her own headline tours, Wanda Sykes ranks among Entertainment Weekly’s “25 Funniest People in America.”  See her live at Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Saturday, March 5in the Grande Exposition Hall at 8 p.m.

Growing up, Sykes didn’t necessarily know she wanted to do comedy.  She was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and raised in Maryland, later attending Hampton University and receiving a Bachelor of Science degree.  After college she was prompted to use her smart-witted attitude for something more—stand up comedy. 

After success at a talent showcase in Washington, D.C. Sykes began spending more time on the stage.  Soon after, outspoken stand up comedian Chris Rock discovered her talents and recruited her to write for HBO’s critically acclaimed “Chris Rock Show.”  As a performer and writer on the show, she was nominated for three Primetime Emmy’s and in 1999 won the Emmy for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special.” 

From there, Sykes career skyrocketed to the top.  In 2001, she won the American Comedy Award for “Outstanding Female Stand Up Comic.” She won three more Emmy’s in 2002, 2004 and 2005 for her work on “Inside the NFL” for “Outstanding Weekly Studio Show.”  In 2003 she was seen on Fox’s “Wanda at Large” which she wrote, produced and starred in.  She also put together a one hour Comedy Central special called “Wanda Sykes: Tongue Untied”.  Her first HBO Comedy Special “Wanda Sykes: Sick & Tired” debuted in October 2006 and was nominated for a 2007 Primetime Emmy.

Sykes can also be seen in the feature films “Evan Almighty,” the sequel to “Bruce Almighty,” in which she co-starred with Steve Carell, the New Line feature “Monster-In-Law” starring opposite Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda and heard in the animated feature “Over The Hedge” for Dreamworks as well as “The Barnyard” for Paramount Pictures. She can also be seen co-starring with Luke Wilson and Uma Thurman in the romantic comedy “My Super Ex-Girlfriend.” Sykes starred and produced the Comedy Central show “Wanda Does It” where she tried various non-showbiz jobs. Her first book titled “Yeah, I Said It” hit bookstores in September 2004.  She can be seen on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

During her routines Sykes attacks topics like politics, gay marriage, karma, healthcare, racial profiling, the pressures of being a woman and the perks of getting older with smart, savvy wit audiences can’t help but laugh at. 

See this Emmy winning comedienne up close and personal at Silver Legacy on Saturday, March 5 at 8 p.m. inside the Grande Exposition Hall!  Tickets are available now for $50 with premium seating for $67.50.  To reserve seats call 1-800-MUST-SEE (678-8733) or 775-325-7401 or visit www.silverlegacy.com and www.ticketmaster.com.  iPhone, iPad and Android users, download the free Silver Legacy App to get tickets instantly and check out Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for the latest Legacy news.  It’s Wanda Sykes in a show you don’t want to miss!

Fall leavesCan you believe 2011 is only seven weeks away?! Where has 2010 gone? Each year I find myself asking the same question. I’m sure  it doesn’t help that in Reno Tahoe there are at least 260 days of special events each year – helping the year just whiz by.

If you’re in Reno Tahoe over Thanksgiving, the area has LOTS to offer. We’ve compiled a list of happenings in the area – enjoy!

Spunky, Adventurous Songs from Sara Evans at Silver Legacy

Sara EvansDescribed as strong, versatile and spunky, Sara Evans plans to present her latest “Greatest Hits” album to fans at Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Friday, November 12.  The country singer takes the stage in the Grande Exposition Hall at 8 p.m. with chart toppers like “A Real Fine Place to Start, “Suds in the Bucket” and “No Place That Far.”

A Booneville, Missouri native, Sara Evans grew up one of seven children and began singing country music with her family’s band when she was five-years-old. By the time she was 16 she landed a gig singing regularly at a club in Columbia, Missouri. Evans made her way to Nashville where she got her first break.  Legendary songwriter Harlan Howard heard her amazing voice and tapped her to sing his demos. A deal with RCA Records followed soon after.

With numerous Number 1 hits, Evans has become one of the most successful female artists of her generation.  She’s won numerous accolades, among them the Academy of Country Music’s Female Vocalist of the Year and the Country Music Association’s Video of the Year for “Born to Fly.”  She was named 2006 Female Vocalist of the Year in the R&R Reader’s Poll and has been celebrated as one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.”

Of the five albums Evans has released, her sophomore set, “No Place That Far” has been certified Gold; 2001’s “Born to Fly” is Double-Platinum and 2003’s “Restless” and 2005’s “Real Fine Place” are both Platinum.  Those successes have now brought on a new album, “Sara Evans—Greatest Hits,” a 14-song collection featuring 10 of Evans’ signature songs as well as four inspired new songs.

It’s the ability to write songs that connect with the heart of her audience that has made Evans such a successful artist, and it’s her willingness to take risks and embrace a challenge that has widened her following. “Some things just feel right,” she says, citing her participation in ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” “It totally, totally changed my career. It was one of the best times of my life. I loved it.”

Get your tickets to see this multi-talented, multi-faceted country singing superstar in person at Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Friday, November 12 at 8 p.m.   Tickets are available from $35 with premium seating at $55.  For more information or to reserve your seats visit www.silverlegacy.com or www.ticketmaster.com.

Engelbert Humperdinck Brings his Legacy of Love to Reno

ehumperdinckNeed a night of romance?  Let Engelbert Humperdinck sweep you off your feet at Silver Legacy Resort Casino!  For more than four decades, this international recording icon has shared a legacy of love with fans of all ages.  Now see him live in the Grande Exposition Hall on Saturday, September 18 at 8 p.m. 

Engelbert revisits many of his timeless and beloved classics on his new tour, promoting his latest album “Legacy of Love.”  The album also includes two never-before-recorded songs, the classic “Over the Rainbow” and the incomparable “My Way.” This is the newest addition to his unmatched musical legacy that includes sales of a staggering 150 million albums worldwide, including 64 Gold and 24 Platinum. Engelbert’s music has withstood the test of time thanks to his sensitive interpretation of lyrics. 

From an early age, Arnold George Dorsey had a passion for music, but it wasn’t until his early manager suggested he devise a new, mysterious stage name that he gained popularity. Dorsey looked to the name of a German composer he enjoyed, thus was born the phenomenon known as Engelbert Humperdinck. 

By the time his first mega-hit “Release Me” went to #1 in 11 different countries, the London Times crowned him “The Premier Voice of the 20th Century.” His inimitable three-and-a–half octave range and ultra smooth onstage charisma won over fans of every generation, in every part of the globe.  He never limited himself to just one genre, recording everything from pop to disco, rock and gospel.  

His career in the ‘70s was punctuated by a steady stream of hits including the Grammy nominated “After the Lovin’.” In 1978 he received a “Georgie Award” from the American Guild of Variety Artists recognizing him as “Entertainer of the Year,” an honor shared by such exemplary artists as Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow and Johnny Carson.  In 1989 he was honored with a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 2003 received his second Grammy nomination for the 2003 album, “Always Hear The Harmony.” 

When not on tour, Engelbert and his beloved wife of 44 years, Patricia, divide their time between their homes in England and California and spending time with their four grown children.  In 2004 his autobiography “Engelbert: What’s In A Name?” made it’s way onto the best-seller lists giving readers an intimate look at not only his career and family, but also the eventful life he has led.

One of the world’s most instantly recognized voices, Englebert Humperdinck is a true icon of entertainment.  Watch as he proves the best is yet to come in Silver Legacy’s Grande Exposition Hall on Saturday, September 18 at 8 p.m.  Tickets are available from $50 with premium seating at $60 and $70.  Reserve your seats online at www.silverlegacy.com or www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-MUST-SEE (687-8733) or 775-325-7401.

Catch Your Breath for a Good Cause

Silver LegacyOn Sunday, April 25, head to the Silver Legacy Resort Casino stairwell to take part in the “Fight for Air Climb”. Support the American Lung Association and help raise awareness for lung health and clean air by climbing 36 flights of stairs.

One flight of stairs is an average of ten steps. 36 flights equal 360 steps. One mile is roughly 2,000 steps, so in this race you’ll climb merely a fraction of that. (0.022369362912 of a mile to be exact.)

The event starts at 9:45 a.m. Local firefighters will start at 10 a.m. in full fire gear!

Last year, 52 other cities across the nation participated in stair climb events with the American Lung Association.  For more information or to register for this event, visit the event website.
