Frontier Comedy are pleased to announce a solo stand-up tour for American actor, writer, producer and comedian Shawn Wayans in May 2018. Known and loved by audiences for his quick-wit, raw humour and through his starring roles in White Chicks, Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2, Shawn was last in the country in 2013 performing a double act with brother Marlon Wayans across Australia and New Zealand.
The legendary comic will kick off his 2018 Australian tour at The Star Gold Coast on Thursday 10 May, going onto Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Regal Theatre for Perth Comedy Festival, before wrapping up at the Enmore Theatre on Friday 18 May for Sydney Comedy Festival. These will be Shawn’s debut solo performances in Australia, and the first time fans in the Gold Coast and Adelaide can see him live. Tickets on sale Friday 8 December.
Shawn Wayans made his acting debut in his brother Keenen Ivory Wayans’ feature film I’m Gonna Get You Sucka (1989). Immediately following his feature film debut, Shawn joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, In Living Color. From 1995 to 1999, Shawn and his brother Marlon created and starred in the sitcom The Wayans Bros.
Shawn began co-writing his string of blockbusters with the smash hit Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2 (directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans), Little Man, White Chicks, Dance Flick and Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood, which he co-executive produced and starred alongside Marlon Wayans.
In 2006, Shawn, along with his brothers and sisters, created The Boo Crew animated specials for Nickelodeon, about nine inner city kids from diverse backgrounds where lessons are learned through real world situations infused with comedy and music. In addition to creating, the Wayans also wrote, produced, directed and voiced the series. Currently, A Boo Crew Christmas Special is available on its Youtube channel, The Boo Crew TV. When not on the road performing stand up, Shawn can be found hard at work in the “lab” where he and his brothers are busy concocting their next project.
