Keenen Ivory Wayans

Keenen Ivory Wayans, a visionary trailblazer in comedy and professional springboard for his siblings, helped change what America finds funny.

As a director, writer and producer, Wayans is responsible for creating the groundbreaking sketch comedy TV show In Living Color and the films I’m Gonna Git You Sucka, White Chicks and the first two installments of the Scary Movie franchise. The 55-year old eldest brother of Damon, Kim, Marlon and Sean is now coming back to his comedy roots in stand-up making a stop for a rare club performance in Denver this October.

Wayans spends more time writing and directing big Hollywood movies than he does working the stage. He co-wrote Eddie Murphy: Raw and briefly hosted his own show called The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show. Recently, Wayans has returned back on the small screen as a guest actor on TV Land’s sitcom Happily Divorced, which stars Tichina Arnold.

Wayans has never been a one-liner kind of guy, but more of a storyteller. In the words of Wayans himself, “I’m a disciple of [Richard] Pryor and [George] Carlin and that school of comedy — much more of a storyteller, much more personal stuff, just talking about my life.”
