Wanda Sykes Spent Her Summer Kayaking with Crocodiles

Wanda Sykes Spent Her Summer Kayaking with Crocodiles


What else did you
do this summer? We went to France,
we went to Mexico. Mexico was fun. Mexico was fun. Yeah. Yeah. What did you– where? What part, and what’d you do? We were in Tulum, with Alex,
her mom, her sister, her kids, and our kids. And we went to a cenote. And it’s basically a sinkhole
surrounded by limestone– a nice pool, basically. Is it like– [INAUDIBLE] called
it a cement pond. Uh-huh, right. So anyway, we get
in the cenote, and– me? I’m not a swimmer, right? So I had a kayak with
my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law was
in the back, right? So we’re paddling,
like, 10 seconds on this kayak, my mother-in-law
has us straight in the bushes. Like we like just,
in the bushes. I’m like, how in the world? She didn’t know how
to steer, right? So anyway, we get out the
bushes and we’re going along, going along. And we get to one
place, and this has a sign that says,
don’t sit on the rocks. I’m like, OK. I guess, you know, rocks
are slippery, whatever. We go a little bit more, it
says, don’t go past this point without a guide. I’m like, OK. Well, I’m not going that way. I’m going– and
then on this side, I see a sign that said,
beware of the crocodiles. So it’s also in Spanish. And my mother-in-law
also speaks Spanish. I’m like, I hit her, I
was like, what’s that say? Espanol! Hable, what’s that? And she’s like,
oh, the crocodile. I was like, oh! Turn around. Turn around, right? And all the sudden, my
mother-in-law read it, and she’s like, aw, come on. Possible. I said, nope. Come on. I said, you better get
this thing straight. Come on, let’s go. Let’s go. So we turned around. We going back. And as we’re heading back
to the entrance, right, and you still got a
nice ways to go, right? Here comes my whole family in
the water, swimming towards me, right? So I look at them
and I’m paddling. And Alex says the girls, Olivia
and Eleanor, they’re tired. Put them in the kayak. I’m like, OK, OK. So they all
surrounded the kayak. And I said, OK. First of all, let me tell you
what we’re not going to do. We are not going to
flip this kayak over. They can get on here, but we
are not doing that, right? So Olivia goes, mommy
boo, you still can’t swim? I was like, no. But I can read. Let’s see how your
reading skills are when you get down there! So we them. We get the two
girls on the kayak. And I tell Alex, I say, hey. There’s a sign back there that
says beware of the crocodiles. And she was like, no. I’m like, OK. Y’all keep saying no. I’m going to leave. We’re going, right? And she goes, you’re
going to leave? I said, yeah! I don’t want to watch you
all get eaten by crocodiles. Do you know how that would scar
me for the rest of my life? I can’t. I don’t want to
see what happens. I’m going, all right? So we’re paddling back. We’re paddling back. So we get back to the entrance. And I asked the guy,
I say hey, you know, as I’m waiting for my family
to return, so asked him. I said, there’s a sign that
says beware of crocodiles. That’s a joke, right? He’s was like, no, no, no. He said, you know,
they’re in the back. They’re in the back. I’m like, wait. There’s really crocodiles? I said, man, you need to put
that sign at the entrance! Why would you put the sign
all the way back there? He said well, at the
entrance is bad for business. What’s also bad for
business is someone gets eaten by a crocodile. Yeah. Yeah! Isn’t that crazy? Yes. That is crazy.

  1. Oh my land, Wanda Sykes is a hoot. πŸ˜€ I love her. πŸ˜€ God bless Ellen, her and her fabulous family. πŸ˜€ Have an awesome day! πŸ˜€

  2. I'm a simple man. I see Wanda Sykes I press the thumbs up button (albeit three times: 1st time coz then 2nd time enough then 3rd time to undo the unlike by action 2)

  3. I have loved Wanda ever since she did the movie The monster in law, every time she’s on Ellen without fail I am always cry laughing.

  4. You should censor ads that appear during your videos. In fact, you should stop them all together. I pay $180/month. With spotty cell reception, I have NO TIME to view ads. I'm not paying for ads. Rather, I shouldn't be anyways. That's so majorly BUNK!!! 😑

  5. I've been surrounded by black friends even my fiance is black and I've never known a black person who is "dare daring". As soon as they feel a little adrenaline they storm out lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. I love Wanda and Ellen.
    For the record Cenote, thousands of them are part of a vast interconnect fresh water caves. A TX University group discovered one about 240 miles long. I've been a Tulum and have been a Cenote. Taken there by young MX amigos and then to Public Beac. A highly spiritual experience all day long. You can feel the amazing energy in a Cenote.

  7. "I don't wanna watch y'all get eaten by crocodiles you, you know how that would scar me for the rest of my life" This is everything I didn't know I needed in my life

  8. That such a latino thing to happen (I'm from Costa Rica) and we know crocodiles won't go anywhere near people, they are too much bother for them, (people screaming, laughing, splashing, that scares them). It's the same in the sea, if you are getting yourself in the sea, there are a shit ton of living, dangerous creatures inside but mostly they swim away from humans. But this is hilarious

  9. Or better yet I want to see Ellen as a guest on a show hosted by Wanda she's a comedic genius! Not just on stand up either. Every movie and or television show she's on she is the stand out character and totally makes the show

  10. Going to see Wanda for the first time ever this Friday !!! Can’t wait to see to you Wanda !!! Going to be a blast !!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

  11. We had a school trip to an orchard when I was in the 3rd grade. There were signs that said if you see any alligators to run in a zig zag pattern to get away. I refused to enter. ( It may have been alligator or crocodile) It was a long time ago. I don't need instructions on how to run; I need to not meet them in the first place.

  12. This woman makes it very difficult for me to breathe!!! Glad her family made it out safely and that they put a sign up!! Ps no water activities for me in Mexico ✌🏽

  13. I almost soiled myself in Cancun when i saw croc near the sidewalk i ran for my life it was super scary but no one seemed to be bothered just me

  14. Yes and things are OKAnd they know you and talk about in person as well yes you are off she knows she knows that when she’s in my bathroom I was just using it as secondary go on her and she wanna know about to go on her but she went off

  15. "No but i can read… Lets see how ur reading skills are when u get down there!"… I love WandaπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ’―πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

  16. I love Wanda so much……. every time I see her on Ellen, she has me rolling with laughter.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  17. I love Wanda and she is hilarious, but she has to do a bit on that mommy boo thing. Imagine being black and having your white kids call you mommy boo.

  18. " I don't wanna watch my family get eaten by Crocs, you know how it's gonna scar my life" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ man she is hilarious

  19. Yeah I don’t do it funny because I am late for her she say and get change to white clothes or something sweet and I said for me that how you get hot and I will check the weather to be petty cardio

  20. There are what make me feel better that for my mother and my father she is to me what now be yourself that way very much that changed show much as a person she does for me do something for her as well

  21. As funny as this is πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ It is not funny that they aren't warning people sooner as Wanda pointed out 🀦🀦😀😀
