Improv Arlington presents Shawn Wayans
The Wayans family is filled with talented members, so theres no surprise that Shawn has followed in his family's footsteps as a Hollywood icon. This comedic prodigy has accomplished a lot in his relatively short career so far. He made his acting debut in brother Keenen Ivory Wayans feature film I'm Gonna Get You Sucka and followed with joining the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series In Living Color. The sitcom The Wayans Bros. was created by Shawn and Marlon and was the first WB show to be sold into syndication after being the number one show on the network lineup for five years.
He’s since been in the blockbuster films Don't Be A Menace While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood, Little Man and White Chicks which he starred in with his brother Marlon, co-wrote and produced. The Wayans brothers began this string of blockbusters with the smash Scary Movie parts 1 and 2, both directed by Keenen, had a roll in Dance Flick, co-hosted the MTV Video Music Awards and they've both been involved in various other projects throughout the years.
