The Wayans Brothers
When Keenen Ivory and Damon Wayans created In Living Color in 1990, they changed the face of comedy forever. But they're not the only Wayans brothers with star power. Their siblings Shawn and Marlon also became known for their roles on the influential sketch series (as well as their subsequent acting careers), and now all four take the nation by storm in a 2014 tour. This isn't a retread of old triumphs, however—the show consists of new standup routines from the brothers, in addition to freshly minted comedy sketches made just for the stage.
- Keenen Ivory Wayans: the first Wayans to make it big, Keenen directed some of the most beloved comedies of the '90s and '00s, including I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, and Scary Movie
- Damon Wayans: besides playing memorable characters such as Homey D. Clown on In Living Color, Damon also had his own ABC sitcom with My Wife & Kids, and starred in 1995's Major Payne
- Marlon Wayans: the youngest Wayans proved his comedy chops in Mr. Show with Bob and David, two Scary Movie films, and Norbit, but also had enough dramatic chops to carry Requiem for a Dream
- Shawn Wayans: most often seen alongside his brother Marlon, Shawn is best known for White Chicks, Little Man, and the first two Scary Movie films, which he also co-wrote
