If there is one thing that Sebastian Maniscalco loves, then that is to complain. The stand-up comedian loves to complain about just about anything that he can find. From his gym to his wife’s Jewish traditions, nothing escapes the sketch of Maniscalco. In fact, his Netflix special, Stay Hungry, is one big complaint of Maniscalco about his life. But for all his comedic intelligence, Maniscalco is not the only one with a sense of humor in his family. His wife, Lana Gomez, is as sarcastic as Maniscalco if not more, and has a really dry sense of humor. But for all her comedic bits within the family and her reference in Maniscalco’s stand-up, not much is known about Gomez. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Lana Gomez.
Lana Gomez was born on the 23rd of April 1983 in Naples, Florida, U.S. Born to Simone Gomez Lutgert, a nurse, and Barry Gomez, a firefighter who passed away in 2001, Gomez spent most of her early life with her sister Heather Dockweiler and brother Rodney Weiss. Her parents divorced when Gomez was just nine years of age and Gomez moved in with her mother and her step-father, Scott Lutgert. Gomez was interested in art from a very young age and excelled at it during her high school years. After graduating high school in 2001, Gomez enrolled at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. She graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art.
Gomez moved to Los Angeles after graduating to pursue a career as an artist. She struggled for a few years but got her big break in 2008 when she worked for the interior designer Kelly Wearstler. In 2009, Gomez’s mural-sized painting was featured in Wearstler’s book, Hue. Things were on the rise for Gomez who was invited to work on a 10ft guitar sculpture for the Gibson Guitar Town on the occasion of the Sunset Strip event in 2010. But for all her achievements, Gomez is best known for her work in making the model of Greystone Mansion, located in Beverly Hills.
Over the years, Gomez has been featured in several magazines including House Beautiful, Los Angeles Confidential, and The New Yorker. As of now, Gomez runs an online art magazine and also owns an art gallery in West Hollywood.
Lana Gomez is happily married to Sebastian Maniscalco. The pair first met at a gym in 2011 and their personal trainer had quite the influence.
“We had [the same] personal trainer and I asked him, ‘You got any good-looking girls you could… put me around?’ He said he had one in the morning. I said, it’s a little early for me, but put me kind of like behind her and I’ll come and I’ll check her out. Then I saw her, and we started talking. She was on a treadmill, and I came up next to her and I said, ‘You wanna go out with this?’ She’s got a sense of humor, too — very sarcastic, very dry. She was like, ‘Listen, I don’t go out with anybody that has over 13 percent body fat. So work it down to about 9 and I’ll think about it.’ She was very, very funny, and she really got me. We fell in love, and boom, got married [in 2013]”
The pair tied the knot on the 26th of August 2013 and had two children, a daughter, Serafina, in May 2017, and a son, Caruso, in June 2019.
