Out comedian Wanda Sykes returns to HBO tomorrow night with her second comedy special, I'ma Be Me. Taped at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C., I'ma Be Me features the outspoken comic riffing on topics such as coming out, being a new mom, working on a

gay cruise and, of course, politics.

On November 7, Sykes will also debut her new Fox talk show, The Wanda Sykes Show, making her the first African American lesbian to headline on network late night. The Emmy-winning writer of The Chris Rock Show is best known as Barb on CBS' The New Adventures of Old Christine and was also this year's host of the White House Correspondents Association dinner.

After performing on the True Colors Tour in 2008, Sykes publicly came out last November at a "No on Prop 8" rally in Las Vegas.

Catch a preview below of I'ma Be Me, airing Saturday, October 10, at 10 PM only on HBO:
