Known throughout the world for no-holds-barred comedic genius, Damon Wayans wrapped five seasons
of the hit ABC series, "My Wife and Kids," in 2005, which he co-created and executive produced. Currently
in syndication worldwide, the series received numerous awards, including the 2002 People’s Choice for

as patriarch Michael Kyle.
Damon Wayans is most fondly remembered for his three seasons as writer and co-star on the Emmy
Award winning series "In Living Color." There, he created sketch characters like “Homey the Clown,”
“Handiman,” and outrageously gay film critic Blaine from Men on Film. His writing for the series earned
him two personal Emmy nominations.
In 2006, Damon Wayans created, executive produced, and starred in the hilariously comedic sketch show "The Underground." Additional television credits include "Damon," which he
starred and executive produced, and "413 Hope Street."
He served as an executive producer on "Waynehead," a Saturday morning animated cartoon for Warner
Brothers, which featured the voices of his siblings Kim, Marlon, and Shawn Wayans. In 2008, the
comedian announced the debut of WayOut TV with his vision to taking "In Living Color" to the Internet.
Wayans described the venture as “In Living Color 2.0,” where he would allow viewers to share, rate, and
leave comments on the sketches.
On the big screen, Damon has starred in Spike Lee’s critically acclaimed film "Bamboozled." He also
starred and executive produced independent film "Harlem Aria." Other feature film credits include
starring roles in "Major Payne," "Blankman," and "Mo Money," which he also wrote and executive produced.

Gonna Git You Sucka," "Colors," "Punchline," "Hollywood Shuffle," "Roxanne" and "Beverly Hills Cop."
Damon has enjoyed tremendous success in stand-up. After starting his career in 1982 touring the
comedy-club circuit, he landed a role as a featured player on the famed NBC series, "Saturday Night Live." Wayans went on to star in his own critically acclaimed HBO specials, "One Night Stand," "The Last Stand," "Still Standing," and "Way Out."
And until recently on Fox Networks his hugely successful TV show “Lethal Weapon.” Season 3 ratings
