"I’ve noticed that the relationship jokes you made earlier in your career were a little nastier and less playful than the ones you make now. Why do you think that is?"

The NYT asked Wanda Sykes, who answered: It just speaks to being in a bad relationship with my husband. I was being honest. I wanted to get away.
