WHO ARE THEY: Damon Wayans is an actor, comedian and writer who rose to fame in the early 1990s as one of the stars and co-creators of “In Living Color.” The show was a huge success and helped paved the way for a film career that included starring roles in “The Last Boy Scout,” “Major Payne” and “The Great White Hype.” Beginning in 2001, Wayans starred in the ABC sitcom “My Wife and Kids” which ran for five seasons.
Actor, director and writer Keenan Ivory Wayans became well-known to television audiences in the early 1990s as the host and creator of “In Living Color.” The sketch comedy series starred several of Wayans siblings including brothers Damon, Marlon and Shawn, sister Kim and future stars Jim Carey, Jamie Fox and David Allen Grier. Wayans went on to create and direct “Scary Movie,” a horror movie parody which was enormously successful and led to another three sequels.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Two members of the famous Wayans family: Damon and Keenan Ivory will appear at the House of Blues on Friday night showcasing their incredible comedic talents. Both Wayans initially made a name for themselves with “In Living Color” and since that time have gone on to have continued success individually. Although they each have their own unique style, the comedic sensibility of the brothers has always been in sync and they no doubt will have the crowd roaring with laughter with their zany characters, impressions and parodies.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $29.50 and $59.50, and the show begins 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, at the House of Blues inside Showboat Casino Hotel.
