Wanda Sykes and Alex Niedbalski
Wanda Sykes has been called one of the funniest stand-up comics by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly’s 25 Funniest People in America.
They met in 2006 when Sykes spotted her on a ferry ride to Fire Island. The two got married in 2008, a month before Sykes publicly came out at a same-sex marriage rally in Las Vegas protesting Proposition 8. (She had previously been married to record producer Dave Hall from 1991-1998.)
