There are some things you have to forgive Damon Wayans for: his movies. Flicks like Blankman, Major Payne, Bulletproof and most of the others pale in comparison to his efforts as a comedian, television actor and writer. He was at his late-night best on Saturday Night Live, In Living Color and his own HBO specials. Remember his character Homey D. Clown (Homey dont play that)? And who could forget his Blaine Edwards, the flamboyantly gay co-host of the fictional film review show Men On where two thumbs up was exchanged for two snaps, a twist and a kiss! In his stand-up, Wayans tells humorous and well-characterized tales of his life in show business both the good times and the bad. See why it pays to forgive and forget at 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Improv Comedy Club, 7620 Katy Freeway.
