Shawn Wayans

Shawn Wayans 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, Shawn joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning
comedy series, “In Living Color.”
 
Shawn starred in the box office hits, “Little Man” and “White Chicks,” both
of which he also co-wrote and co-executive produced. Shawn began cowriting
his string of blockbusters with the smash “Scary Movie” where he also
played Ray, an ambiguously gay football jock, alongside his brother Marlon
Wayans, and directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. Co-written, co-executive
produced by and starring Shawn Wayans, “Scary Movie 2” was the only
sequel in the “Scary Movie” franchise with direct Wayans involvement.
Shawn will next be seen on the big screen in “Dance Flick,” the new comedy
co-written with brothers Marlon and Keenen Ivory.
 
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 cowrote,
executive produced and starred in with brother Marlon Wayans. The
movie was a comic spoof of the coming-of-age-in-the-‘hood movies and is a
huge cult favorite.
 
The Wayans Bros.” sitcom, which Shawn and Marlon created and starred in,
was the first WB show to be sold into syndication after heading up the WB
network lineup for five years.
 
Shawn, along with his brothers and sisters, created “Thugaboo” and the
subsequent “Boo Crew” animated specials for Nickelodeon, which began
premiering in August, 2006. In addition to creating, the Wayans are also
writing, directing and voicing the series which takes a humorous look at the
trials and tribulations of nine inner city kids. TheBooCrew.com released in the
fall 2009 and plans are underway to turn The Boo Crew into a daily comic
strip.
 
When not on the road performing standup, Shawn can be found hard at work in
the “lab” where he and his brothers are busy concocting their next project.
