Improv Arlington presents Shawn Wayans
The Wayans family is filled with talented members, so there is no surprise that the second youngest brother, Shawn, has followed in his family's footsteps as a Hollywood icon.
Shawn made his acting debut in 1989 in his brother, Keenen Ivory Wayans' feature film I'm Gonna Get You Sucka. Immediately following his feature film debut, he joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, In Living Color.
Shawn's past film credits include the hit comedy Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood, which he co-wrote, produced and starred in with his brother Marlon. The movie was a comic spoof of the coming-of-age-in- the-hood movies and is a huge cult favorite.
More recently Shawn starred in the box office hit, Little Man and White Chicks, both of which he also co-wrote and produced with Marlon. The brothers began co-writing this string of blockbusters with the smash Scary Movie where they also starred along side each other, and was directed by their brother Keenen Ivory Wayans. Co-written, produced and starring Shawn and Marlon Wayans, Scary Movie 2 was the only sequel.
