Damon Wayans

After Wayans' one season stint with the show from 1985 to 1986, his career blossomed. With brother Keenan Ivory Wayans, he starred in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and the hit TV sketch comedy series In Living Color. Damon also enjoyed a New York Times bestselling book, Bootleg, films Mo' Money and Blankman, plus the TV sitcom My Wife and Kids.
