Shawn Wayans

Special Event Loft Debut

Shawn Wayans

with Neko White

Shawn Wayans made his acting debut in 1989 in his brother Keenen Ivory Wayans’ feature film “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka.” Immediately following his feature film debut, Shawn joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, “In Living Color.” Shawn starred in the box office hits, “Little Man” and “White Chicks,” both of which he also co-wrote and co-executive produced. Shawn began co-writing his string of blockbusters with the smash “Scary Movie” where he also played Ray, an ambiguously gay football jock, alongside his brother Marlon Wayans, and directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. Co-written, co-executive produced by and starring Shawn Wayans, “Scary Movie 2” was the only sequel in the “Scary Movie” franchise with direct Wayans involvement. Shawn’s past film credits include the hit comedy “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood,” which he co-wrote, executive produced and starred in with brother Marlon Wayans. The movie was a comic spoof of the coming-of-age-in-the-‘hood movies and is a huge cult favorite. “The Wayans Bros.” sitcom, which Shawn and Marlon created and starred in, was the first WB show to be sold into syndication after heading up the WB network lineup for five years. Shawn, along with his brothers and sisters, created “Thugaboo” and the subsequent “Boo Crew” animated specials for Nickelodeon, which began premiering in August 2006. In addition to creating, the Wayans are also writing, directing and voicing the series, which takes a humorous look at the trials and tribulations of nine inner city kids. TheBooCrew.com released in the fall 2009 and plans are underway to turn The Boo Crew into a daily comic strip. When not on the road performing standup, Shawn can be found hard at work in the “lab” where he and his brothers are busy concocting their next project.

Neko White

Funny, Smart, Fresh, and magnetic, Neko White is a rising star. He began doing stand-up in 2007 at just fourteen years old. As a stand-up, Neko has been featured on TruTV’s Laff Tracks, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, Fox’s Laughs, and STARZ’s “New York’s Funniest.” He has also appeared as host of Vice News’s popular series, How To Be A Person, and regular guest on MTV2’s Hip Hop Hollywood Squares. In 2015, Neko released his first one-hour comedy special, “Introducing Me”. In 2016, he won the prestigious Caroline’s March Madness Competition and was named a “New Face” at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. Neko works all of the top clubs in New York City. He appears as the official host of the popular bi-weekly “Roast Battle” show at New York Comedy Club on top of headlining across the country on his “Introducing Me” tour. Armed with a well-developed worldview, unique background, and an endearing charm, Neko’s material sheds light through social commentary and personal analysis. He holds a mirror up to himself and everything around him and will hilariously dissect what he sees in that reflection. Neko is incredibly adept at presenting his observations whether social or personal to any audience. Even those that tend to be a little sensitive. Watching him navigate that environment, stiffening the audience with a controversial statement before slaying everyone with a well-crafted joke again and again, is refreshingly incredible. If you’ve ever watched Steph Curry on a good night, hitting ridiculous, miracle shots, each one from further away than the last, then you have an accurate idea of White’s performance. He is a needed breath of fresh air.
