Newark, NJ—–Sometimes outrageous, always audacious, stand-up comic Marlon Wayans is back by popular demand and ready to rock NJPAC once again. He will be rocking the stage August 11th for two shows 7 & 9 PM and August 13th for a 7 PM show at NJPAC in Newark, New Jersey.
Together with his brothers, the actor-screenwriter-producer first entered the comedy hall of fame with projects like In Living Color, Scary Movie and White Chicks—just to name a few. Currently, he appears in the critically acclaimed film Air as Michael Jordan’s Olympics coach, George Raveling, alongside Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Viola Davis and Chris Tucker.
Marlon Wayans soon moved farther into the spotlight, winning widespread popularity when he and brother Shawn costarred in the WB sitcom The Wayans Bros., a largely autobiographical show based on the brothers’ real relationship and personalities. The Wayans Bros., which ran from 1995 to ’99, helped transform Marlon Wayans into one of the most prominent members of his decorated family.
In 2000, he co-wrote and acted in his most popular film to date, the blockbuster horror spoof Scary Movie. The film, which cost a measly $19 million to make, earned an whopping $157 million at the box office, making it the highest-grossing film ever directed by an African-American (Keenen Ivory Wayans). Marlon Wayans also co-wrote and appeared in the film’s several sequels: Scary Movie 2 (2001), Scary Movie 3 (2003) and Scary Movie 4 (2006). In addition to the Scary Movie series, Marlon Wayans and his brother Shawn have starred in the popular spoof films White Chicks (2004), Little Man (2006) and Dance Flick (2009).
