Wayans’ career started from stand-up comedy as far back as 1992. From there, he went on to appear in Eddie Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop (1984) and that every other work took him higher on the corporate success ladder. Damon did not entirely leave stand up comedy but it became just something he did once in a while. Among his other family members Damon is the first generation of the Wayans to have built a most successful career from comedy – their family trait. The Living Colour (1990-1992) star is a sublime comedian like the rest of his siblings but is also a sensational actor.

Damon Kyle Wayans Jr. (son with Lisa Thorner)
Date of Birth: November 18, 1982

Damon needs no introduction as the son of the famous Damon Sr. they are almost identical in their looks and they are also namesakes. Just like his dad was the most successful Wayans in his time, The Happy Endings (2011 – 2013) star Damon Jr. is the most successful Wayans right now. He is the most likely Wayans family member to soon secure a huge film deal seeing that he just came off two massive sitcoms. We believe Damon would soon be a regular on the big screen career.

After this, he did some other works with his actor-comedian dad until he could stand on his own foot as an established actor.
