Marlon Wayans Comedy Show Coming to TBS


Marlon Wayans is bringing a comedy competition show to TBS...

Funniest Wins is scheduled to launch this summer.

Umm, is this all that we're capable of? Coon comedy and slave sports? Oh my fucking goodness. So thankful that I have no children yet. I refuse to raise Black sons and Black daughters in this country and world of stereotypical shit.

@11:46 it's stereotypical and it hasn't even aired? Why don't you leave this country and take your eggs with you.

@topic I guess Marlon is going to be the most rich Wayans. He's been doing a lot of projects by himself lately...including cheating on his baby mama.

if anyone has ever been to a comedy show and the comedy sucked you know that this will be a flop.

Nothing worse than waiting for the comedian to say something funny, and with a bunch of amateurs , no thanks.

I rather watch guys who have already made it.

^ or gals

12:01, Bitch shut up. Everything Black folks touch has a hint of stereotypical shit in it.

Damn can yall support ANYTHING that is not classless, ratchet or baby mama/daddy drama. The show hasnt even aired and yall calling it coon tv but some of you probably tune in to Basketball Wives, Love and Hip hop and bad girls club type shows. The show has the potential to be have a POSITIVE influence on people with some sort of talent and yall shooting it down. Why? Because the yt man didnt make the show? We as a people need to do better. I wont be watching but I hope it does well.

Black actors and Black actresses will only EVER play these roles, so to the people already calling this 'coon comedy,' so be it and you're probably correct. Marlon will probably be over the top as he usually is. If we'e not telling jokes, dancing, or running with a ball in our hand, no one pays attention to us or takes us seriously.

Let's be honest here. When has Marlon Wayans NOT acted like a coon? ********CRICKETS*****************He is the worst of the Wayans Bunch. I can stomach most of their comedy, but he takes it over the top, through the valley and back again. Those of us familiar with Marlon Wayans' act really don't have to watch a minute of this new show to predict his embarrassing antics.

Back in the day I liked Marlon on the Wayans Brothers better than I did Shawn; I'll give ol' Marlon's show a chance.

I wish this brother nothing but the best.

Marlon is cool when he is not on camera. Have ran into him a lot at LAX.

@12:11 thank you

@12:10 I just know you didn't say "EVERYTHING". You just lost the battle with that one word.

I rather see Marlon than old unfunny Kevin Shart.

TRUTH @ 12:27 PM
"Let's be honest here. When has Marlon Wayans NOT acted like a coon? "
AND! his coon roles are from his own writing and producing, it's not like they were the only roles white people were offering so he just sucked it up and took it, NO, he's the writer and producer of his cooning and yet Shawn is in the same movies but never takes it to an extremely cooning level.....Who chooses to shuck and jive in their own movies (other than Tyler Perry)?

DON'T BE A MENACE WHILE DRINKING YOUR JUICE IN THE HOOD-what the f*ck was all that Marlon was doing?

Scary Movie-Why did Marlon choose to talk in that voice and be a dummy

In Living Color-Same as don't be a menace, he would twist and twitch his face all up and talk like a big ole' dummy

The Wayan's show-Over-the-top with the clowning, screech/screaming, rolling over a table to fall to floor then crawl across it while stretching and twisting his mouth like a monster.

He clearly likes using exaggerated facial expressions in ALL his performances, but most of the time it ruins the comedy and takes it to a goofy nonsense place. I don't wish anybody the best of luck when they're using the luck they have to constantly/unnecessarily produce their own nonsense

12:45, Opposing blog comments are not the equivalent of battles.

Marlon going rogue on the family... Hope it doesn't backfire... Keenan said Hollywood is breaking up the Wayans family professional bond.

This man doesn't age at all... He still looks the same as he did in the 90's. I wish him nothing but the best with his new venture. Good luck Marlon. :)

Between Marlon's picture in the post and 12:01's comment, I've gotten my first good laugh to the day.

They'll be looking at that face years from now like we look at Stepin Fetchit...
This was a turn of the century coon, Marlon Wayans. Let's analyze his greatest works?.. Haunted House, Scary Movie, Wayans Bros, DontBeAMenace

^^^ u left out Norbit. Groundbreakin lol

Except I heart Marlon . The entire Wayans family actually. I find them hilariously funny. Marlon my favorite tho. That nigga is shameless !! I still watch the wayans bros. Funny shit. Also I Appreciate their PDA. Sooo sweet. And cute.#awww

This sounds like a good idea. Especially @ his age ( looks like hes sippin on the fountain of youth) and stage of his career.

I say DO U Marlon , and "Make it HHHOOOTTTT"

S/n : one of my favorite wayans episodes is "trial and error", where Marlon lost the dance contest (by default) to white mike. In the 1st 30sec Marlon "got his paper" every time I see him dance I scream!! That damn fool. Lol

Marlon will get plenty of work after he sold his soul by doing all those gay scenes in that crappy haunted house movie. When the ghost was supposed to be fucking him in the asz I had to turn it off. That was simply too far but then again if you'll do that on screen what would you do offscreen for fame and fortune. He has changed recently to me, he doesn't seem like his happy go lucky funny self anymore.

Anonymous said...

@7:45 also when he did that white girls movie (i forgot the name of it or that might be the name of it, lol)
I agree with @12:27, @1:13pm and the others about Marlons over the top cooning. But I will take him any day over Kevin Hart
I always thought Kim, Marlon and Damon were the funniest out of the Wayons

This sounds very interesting, I would watch this. btw Marlon looking sexy as hell right here, he could get it!!

Bee Gee said...

I can't fuck with his brand of "comedy". He doesn't even attempt to be clever with it, and I agree with the coonery sentiment. Really watch this nigga next time you peep him. A lotta times, all that's missing is his blackface paint. And when him and his brother wrote that unfunny ass book I wanted to run they ass over with a tank.

There's a big difference between a comedian and a nigga that just acts a loud obnoxious fool for a crowd. Cats like Marlon and K Hart aren't comedians as much as they are Jesters for King Hollywood. To each his own tho..
