Damon Wayans

Actor/Comedian As a stand-up comedian, Damon Wayans garnered national attention with his appearances on HBO’s comedy showcase One Night Stand and Robert Townsend’s cable TV sketch comedy special Partners in Crime. But it was on big brother Keenan’s groundbreaking sketch comedy show In Living Color that Damon became a superstar, with his characters, like Homey D. Clown, becoming part of the pop culture landscape. His attempts to translate TV fame into film stardom with such movies as Blankman and Major Payne (both co-written by him) were commercially unsuccessful. He’d find his biggest success as the creator and star of the hit ABC TV show My Wife and Kids (2001-2005).
