American standup comedian Tammy Pescatelli has been married to fellow standup Luca Palanca since 2008. And she required little time to realize that it was him she wanted to be with.

Pescatelli And Palanca’s Love Story

Pescatelli told her story about meeting Palanca on a post on WeTV’s website in 2011.

The duo was pursuing their careers in Hollywood. Both of them were regulars at Mitzi Shore’s The Comedy Store. Since both of them are of Italian descent, they even had the same group of Italian friends.

They weren’t strangers, though. They knew of each other, and they used to be invited to each other's parties. At one point, they were even supposed to be working together. What’s more, one of their acquaintances had tried to set them up while they were dating other people. 

Despite all this, Pescatelli and Palanca didn’t come across each other for four years. Then, one night, Pescatelli went on a double date with her neighbor. Palanca was the neighbors’ date’s best friend and roommate. Hence, after many coincidences, the duo finally ended up together.

Pescatelli said that it only took her a little while to realize that Palanca was “the one” for her.

After two years of dating, the couple finally tied the knot in 2008. With their careers and a baby, the duo was very busy with their schedules. So, they had a short and intimate marriage at Justice of Peace.

But because of pressure from their relatives, especially their mothers, the couple had a wed-tismal — a wedding for themselves and a baptism for their baby boy in Meadville.

But Pescatelli, who loved her mother a lot, couldn’t deny her desire to do ‘girly’ things. Hence, the comedian experienced the traditional wedding journey like dress-shopping and a surprise shower with her family. Palanca himself was also very invested in the second wedding. 

Therefore, the duo had a second traditional wedding with Pescatelli’s father and the Mayor of Meadville blessing them. For the second time, they tied the knot, this time in front of their families. 

Pescateli and her husband have now been married for almost 16 years. Pescatelli claims that her son Luca, named after his father, is a natural-born prodigy. She constantly posts about him on her Instagram.
