Bio

Damon Wayans, Jr. is an American actor and comedian best known for his starring role as Brad Williams in the television sitcom Happy Endings, from 2011-2013.

Wayans Jr. starred in his first major film, Dance Flick, in May 2009, a Paramount spoof that was produced, written and directed by fellow Wayans funny men.

Other roles include voicing the character of Thunder in the action digital animation film, Marmaduke, as well as the comedy/action film The Other Guys, co-starring Will Farrell, Eva Mendez and Mark Wahlberg.

In addition to pursuing the crafts of acting and writing, Wayans Jr. continues honing his stand-up skills, performing in comedy clubs across the country.

In 2005 Wayans followed in his father's (Damon Wayans) comedic footsteps and braved the world of stand-up under the pseudonym Kyle Green. He appeared alongside his father in the Showtime television series The Underground (2006), and served as a writer on that sketch comedy series.

He also wrote, directed and starred in a series of innovative internet-based comedy sketches for Way-Out TV, a website launched in 2007 by his father. In January 2008, Wayans was featured on HBO's Def Comedy Jam.

Wayans was born at his grandmother's home in Vermont but was raised in Los Angeles. He made his film debut at age 11 in the 1994's Blank Man.

He later pursued his early passion for fine arts and animation in high school, and was admitted to the Otis School for Art and Design. He performed in a few bit roles on ABC's My Wife and Kids, and later landed a job as staff writer on the series at the age of 20.

An accomplished mixed martial artist, snowboarder (complete with air tricks), former gymnast and high school track star, Wayans loves to figure sketch and enjoys Japanese animation.

He was a presenter at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.
