Sunda made international headlines in 2007 when she was sued, by her very own mother-in-law, for jokes she used in her standup comedy. The media ate up the story and Sunda was plastered all over TV, radio and print. In the end, the judge dismissed the suit which was a win for all comedians who are protected by the First Amendment. Sunda’s been featured on The Today Show, Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors and Nickmom. She’s originally from New Jersey and is now on the west coast.
