Shawn and Marlon Wayans’ movies might not receive widespread critical acclaim, but their global popularity is undeniable.
The brothers, along with eight other siblings, are members of the influential “First Family of Comedy”.
Each sibling has carved out a career in the entertainment industry.
The third oldest, Damon, rose to international fame in major vehicles such as The Last Boy Scout, The Great White Hype, Major Payne, Bulletproof and Mo’ Money.
Marlon (above left) says that being in the Wayans family is a source of healthy competition.
“It’s not competition in the negative sense, but we always try and top a joke,” the writer, actor and comedian says.
“Whoever is funnier is funnier – but I never go out on stage and say, ‘You wait and see how much funnier than Shawn I am!’
“I get mad when people try to tell me I’m funnier than my brother – I hate that.”
