As much of brag is his professional life in the public and media, yet his personal life is a different topic altogether. Never does he allows himself to spill the beans about it. Or maybe he just does not like the idea of letting anyone within his personal space.
However, gathering the bits and pieces from his interviews, social media activities and his stand-up recitals as of 2019, what we can say with confidence is that he was once a married man.
Dana, who stands to a height of 5 feet and 8 inches (1.73 meters), married Sue Naegle, a former President of HBO entertainment. Like him, his ex-wife holds several titles to describe for her accomplishing the career.
"My wife is very progressive"- said Dana during one of his Interviews, when they were bonded by marriage. He went on adding that together the couple adopted their three beautiful girls all the way from China.

He keeps on mentioning about his girls and divorce in many of his stand-ups, yet it is not easy to extract details to their family life, based solely upon it.
It has been years since Dana got separated with his wife in 2014. Be that as it may, they seem to have stayed friends even as an estranged husband-wife, as they have still got to do the parenting job.
