The trail-blazing linchpin of a sprawling African-American family of comic entertainers, it was multi-talented writer/director/producer Keenen Ivory Wayans who was the first to achieve national prominence by successfully creating, launching and hosting a landmark 1990s black-oriented comedy satire on Fox TV. That, in turn, ignited and advanced the careers of siblings Damon, Kim, Shawn and Marlon, Jennifer Lopez, Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx. He directed the hilarious horror spoof Scary Movie, which is still one of the most successful feature films ever directed by an African-American. Scary Movie 2, White Chicks, Little Man, Dance Flick, among others.
