Rachel Weisz might be known to us on this side of the Atlantic from The Mummy, Enemy at the Gates or About a Boy but she's been starring in British 'tele' since 1993 in Inspector Morse. She's acted in British theater too and started her cinema career in 1995 with Chain Reaction.

Wanda Sykes might not be a famous actress but she's known for her observations on current events, the difference between the sexes and races, and life in general. She writes for the Chris Rock Show – a team that was nominated for four Emmys and won in 1999.

She started her stand-up career in 1987 when she entered a Washington, DC area talent competition. She lost in the competition but she discovered her passion for comedy. She hone in on her talents at local venues while working as a procurement officer at the National Security Agency (NSA). She left the NSA in 1992 and moved to New York.

She has appeared in films like Pootie Tang and on TV in shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm. In 2003 she starred in her own Fox network sitcom, Wanda at Large. That same year Wanda Sykes appeared in an hour-long comedy special Tongue Untied, which aired on Comedy Central.
