Comedian & Actress, Wanda Sykes

After working in DC for 5 years at the National Security Agency (NSA), Wanda Sykes moved to New York to pursue goals in comedy and acting. She opened for Chris Rock in the 1990s, earned a recurring role on “Inside the NFL” when it was on HBO, and starred in Hollywood films including The Nutty Professor II, and The Muppets. Because she worked for the NSA for 5 years, it is possible she’ll be eligible for a deferred pension check, but such information is not public.
