Two years ago, Marlon Wayans decided to try stand-up comedy to prepare for an upcoming role as the legendary Richard Pryor. Whether or not the film will ever be made remains murky, but the member of the famous comedy family seems to have found a new niche for himself. His brother Shawn Wayans, himself a veteran stand-up comedian, is joining Marlon onstage this tour. Shawn says Marlon already performs like a ten-year veteran. The Wayans family is well known for producing some great comedic moments on film in the last two decades. Watching two of its brightest members in front of a live audience should be more of the same.
