Marlon Wayans steals hearts with a photo of his wife, son, and daughter wearing red noses

It was red nose day at the Wayans’ and their documentation of it on Instagram was everything. The family unit whose name is synonymous with comedy wanted to remind us all to watch their show later in the evening. It’s always fun when a Wayans brother is in it.


Marlon Wayans, the youngest Wayans brother best known for his role in the Scary Movie film series, is as funny as his siblings. Although he is all grown now with a family, the comedian is not done making us laugh. Matter of fact, he has turned his household into a small comedy club where his wife and two kids make serious announcements with clown noses.


Wayans, the youngest of ten siblings, was born in 1972 in New York City to a family of funny people. Since most of his family was already in comedy, it was only a matter of time before he followed suit. They started from the projects, and were so poor that ''we called my dad an entre-poor-neur.'' Despite the poverty, Wayans attended the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, and in 1988, at the age of 16, he made his film debut in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka. By this time, most of his siblings were already quite successful and so he sought to follow in their footsteps.


It has been a long time coming, but the youngest Wayans brother is now a sought-after comedian. He married longtime girlfriend Angelica Zackary in 2005. They have two children, a son Shawn (named after Wayans's brother) and a daughter Amai.


His stand on comedy is simple – we are here to make you laugh and think.

“It’s intended to make people think, to make people feel, to make people see things from a different perspective and to unite people through laughter. We may not always agree, but if I get you to laugh at least you’ll understand what I’m saying.”

What does the stand-up comedian think social media has done to the industry? “A good joke takes a long time to construct. But the way social media works now, everything you do is put on Instagram or Snapchat. You’re trying a joke [in a club] and they’re putting it on Instagram, and you go, ‘Wait, that joke’s not ready for Instagram!’”

Success stories are always inspiring.
