GOOD TO BE HERE.

I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

GOT MY SPECIAL.

GOT A SHOW COMING OUT--

MY OWN SIT-COM COMING OUT.

AND I'M REAL EXCITED ABOUT IT,

BECAUSE IT'S AN IDEA THAT

I CAME UP WITH.

YOU KNOW, AND BEFORE YOU GET TO

DO A SHOW THAT YOU WANT TO DO,

YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO ALL THEY BAD

IDEAS.

AND THEY HAD A LOT OF BAD IDEAS.

YOU KNOW, MY AGENT WOULD CALL

ME, AND SHE'S LIKE-- "WANDA, YOU

DON'T EVEN WANT TO HEAR THIS."

I'S LIKE, "NO, TELL ME,

WHAT IS IT?"

SHE'S LIKE, "ALL RIGHT,

THEY WANT YOU TO PLAY A MAID.

AND YOU WIN THE LOTTERY.

BUT YOU LOVE WORKING FOR THIS

FAMILY SO MUCH...

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

YOU CONTINUE TO BE THEIR MAID."

I SAID, "SET IT UP.

I WANT TO MEET THESE PEOPLE.

SO I CAN SLAP THAT DUMB-ASS IDEA

RIGHT OUT THEY HEAD."

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK PEOPLE

WANT TO WORK FOR YOU LIKE THAT.

THAT'S RIDICULOUS.

I'M GONNA TELL YOU RIGHT NOW,

SOMEBODY WALKED IN HERE AND

TOLD ME I JUST WON THE LOTTERY,

I WOULD WALK OUT IN THE MIDDLE

OF THIS JOKE.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)
