Marlon Wayans continues to evolve as a top comedian in Hollywood. After beginning his career as the “young Wayans” on “In Living Color,” Wayans established a respectable career in film and TV with projects such as “The Wayans Bros,” Don’t Drink Your Juice…, White Chicks, Scary Movie, and the A Haunted House franchise.    

But Wayans has gone back to his comedic roots by performing stand-up at several venues around the nation. He recently made a stop at the Atlanta Improv where he performed six shows in a span of three nights.

During his set, Wayans made a point to push boundaries with his outrageous brand of comedy. He touched on hot-button issues and gave his hilarious take on Bill Cosby’s rape allegations; domestic violence in sports; Michael Jackson’s childhood; Jay Z and Beyonce; and sex and relationships.

By the end of Wayans’ two-hour set, audience members were nearly in tears while clutching their stomachs due to continuous laughter.

Wayans proved that he still has the gift of owning a crowd while doing stand-up, but he will return to TV and film soon. He’s currently working on a spoof of 50 Shades Grey with the working title, 50 Shades of Black. Wayans will also host a variety show on NBC (“I Can Do That”) during the summer slate.
