dreyfus 140406The new mom of twins co-stars alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the CBS comedy, ‘The New Adventures of Old Christine.’ She recently performed a now-notorious stand-up routine at the White House Correspondents Dinner, and now she’s traveling the country in preparation for her HBO special in August. Sykes, 45, is planning to stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater tonight and at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando on Friday.

Sykes’ stand-up career began at a Coors Light Super Talent Showcase in Washington, D.C., where she performed for the first time in front of a live audience. She recently took a break from motherhood to talk about her family, her career and the surprising body language she received at the White House.

QUESTION: Your partner, Alex, just gave birth to twins. How does it feel to be a new mom?

It’s overwhelming. I’m loving being tired. I enjoyed getting peed on.

QUESTION: Tell me about your partner Alex? How has she changed your life?

Alex is amazing. There’s no fear. I’m in love.

QUESTION: What can your fans expect at your show?

It won’t be geared toward politics. It will be about life.

QUESTION: How do you feel about Sean Hannity criticizing you for making fun of Rush Limbaugh at the recent White House Correspondents’ dinner?

I have no idea what Sean Hannity said.

QUESTION: What was it like meeting President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, at the dinner?

They were delightful and very sweet. He gave me a hug, and both of them said they were looking forward to my routine.

QUESTION: What is your hardest challenge as a black woman in comedy?

My goal is to be funny and work at pushing myself. I guess there’s an issue in marketing. Because you’re black and a woman, they want to market you in a certain way.

QUESTION: What is your favorite funny line that never gets old?

Anything that starts with ‘What the hell?’

QUESTION: What is your favorite indulgence?

Bowling for five hours. My high game is 219. I started snowboarding. Now that it is getting hot, I would love sitting on a beach drinking a margarita. I’m a homebody. I like watching a marathon on television like ‘Top Chef.’

QUESTION: What is it like playing Barb on ‘The New Adventures of Old Christine.’

Barb is Christine’s best friend. What I like is Barb has Christine moments. I love it and I’m looking forward to next season.

QUESTION: Have you had any challenges being a black gay woman?

I think the most authentic you can be as a person is important. That’s the way it should be. I don’t care if you’re straight, and you shouldn’t care if I’m gay or a lesbian.

QUESTION: What did you think of Miss California’s comments at the Miss America pageant about same sex marriages and do you agree with the way Perez Hilton handled her response in the aftermath?

I don’t think about Miss California. She’s not Miss Supreme Court so I don’t care.

QUESTION: Who are you surprised is a fan of yours?

I met Colin Powell at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. We did some sign language. He said good job. He could’ve said kiss my (expletive)!
