Wanda Sykes

Called "one of the funniest stand-up comics" by her peers and ranked among Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America, Sykes's creds can match up — and exceed — any of her male counterparts. The funny lady, who got her start as an Emmy-winning writer for The Chris Rock Show, has had her own standup specials, published books and starred in TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and dozens of movies, including Monster-in-Law and Evan Almighty
