Damon Wayans (born September 4, 1960), one of the Wayans brothers, is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actor who began his career as a stand-up comic in 1982. He was briefly on Saturday Night Live as a featured performer, before getting fired for changing character while on-air.
He produced Waynehead, a cartoon for the WB, loosely based on his own childhood growing up in a large family, starring a poor boy with a clubfoot. It only lasted a season.
In 1999 his New York Times bestseller called Bootleg was published; it is a humorous compilation of his observations about family, children, marriage, and politics.
