Shawn Wayans talks to Arthur about his film career and influence over the years

Actor, comedian, and writer Shawn Wayans stopped by the studio today for stroll down memory with me as we talked about some of the classic comedy films he’s been in over the years.

The star of White Chicks, and the Scary Movie franchise opened up about his early days in the industry learning the ropes from his older brother Keenan Ivory Wayans and how those lessons inspired him to write several of his own successful comedies.

Shawn and I also get into the impact his comedy has had on younger generations, and me specifically with the influence of his TV show The Wayans Bros. leading to a memorable school suspension.

Check out the interview below and make sure you catch Shawn this weekend at Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco.
