Bio

Marlon Wayans is an American actor, model producer, comedian, writer and director who frequently collaborates with his brother Shawn Wayans, as he did on the sitcom The Wayans Bros. and in the films Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, White Chicks, Little Man and Dance Flick.

Wayans first found fame with the TV show In Living Color, the highly acclaimed sketch comedy show that helped launch the careers of such future stars as Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx. He also co-starred in the comedy sitcom The Wayans Bros, a largely autobiographical show based on the brothers' real relationship and personalities.

As a stand-up comedian, Wayans continues to sell out venues across the US. His comedy took a new turn with the launch of his first online venture, What The Funny with internet serial entrepreneur and Funny Or Die co-founder Randy Adams. What The Funny serves up urban comedy from established and emerging comedians, writers and actors through its web site at WhatTheFunny.com.

As an actor, Wayan's movie outings have grossed more than $736-million at the US box office. Wayans is commonly recognised for his role as Marcus Copeland in the 2004 hit comedy White Chicks, opposite Shawn Wayans, Jamie King and Terry Crews.

Wayans also starred alongside Shawn Wayans and Regina Hall in the successful spoof horror franchise Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2.

Wayans' additional film credits include Columbia Pictures' comedy Mo' Money; New Line Cinema's drama Above the Rim; Miramax's parody film Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood; Touchstone Pictures' The Sixth Man; Miramax's Senseless; Dungeons & Dragons; Darren Aronofsky's hit drama Requiem for a Dream, opposite Jared Leto and Jennifer Connolly; The Coen Brothers' The Ladykillers, opposite Tom Hanks; Behind the Smile; Columbia Pictures' Little Man; DreamWorks' Norbit, opposite Eddie Murphy; Paramount Pictures and MTV's parody film Dance Flick; Paramount's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, opposite Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid and Joseph Gordon-Levitt; 20th Century Fox's Marmaduke; and the hit comedy The Heat, opposite Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.

On 7 June, 2014 he was the host of the fourth edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards, broadcast live from the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC Arena) across Africa on MTV Base and MTV.
