Stand-up comedians Shawn and Marlon Wayans visit NU Sept. 6by jmaloni
The Shawn and Marlon Wayans comedy tour makes a stop at Niagara University Saturday at 8 p.m.
The Wayans brothers, of "In Living Color," "White Chicks" and "Scary Movie" fame, will perform at the university's Kiernan Center in a ticketed event that is open to the public.
Shawn and Marlon, the youngest brothers of the Wayans family, have accomplished a lot in their relatively short careers so far. Both made their acting debut in 1989 in their brother Keenen Ivory Wayans' feature film, "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka." Immediately following their feature film debut, they joined the cast of the Emmy Award-winning comedy series "In Living Color."
More recently, Shawn and Marlon starred in "Little Man" and "White Chicks," both of which they co-wrote and produced.
When not producing and starring in movies or on the road performing standup, Shawn and Marlon can be found hard at work in the "lab," where the Wayans siblings are busy concocting their next project.
Tickets for the general public are $20, and on sale at all Ticketmaster outlets (1-800-745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com).
Co-sponsored by the Niagara University Student Government Association and Campus Programming Board, NU students - who have paid their student services fee and possess a current university ID - can purchase a maximum of two tickets per person at $10 each at the Campus Activities office in the Gallagher Center. Students also may call 716-286-8510.
