An outrageous cueball-domed comedian of film and TV satire fortified by a dazzling, sly smile, New York-born Damon Wayans was the third of ten children born to a grocery store manager and a social worker and grew up humbly in the Fulton Housing Projects. He began zeroing in on his comedic skills while still a child, conjuring up a number of weird characters that were later utilized on his older brother Keenen Ivory Wayans' ground-breaking In Living Color (1990), the show that made Damon a huge comedy star.
