Kim Wayans

The Wayans dynasty isn't just a boy's club. Keenan Ivory Wayans' little sister can keep up with any one of her brothers when it comes to making people laugh. The zany comic followed her older brothers to L.A. to pursue a career in stand-up and wound up in the family business as a series regular on In Living Color. She flexed her dramatic chops in the 2011 film Pariah, proving she really can do it all.
