Damon Wayans Calls It Quits From Stand-Up!

We have discovered through our sources that comedian and actor Damon Wayans has called it quits from doing stand-up. No official word from his camp just yet, but our sources have confirmed this to us.

If you recall, Wayans, beginning his career as a stand-up comic in 1982, landed a role as a featured performer on Saturday Night Live. Wayans went on to star in 4 of his own HBO specials, and for three seasons, he co-starred and wrote for the Emmy® Award-winning series, In Living Color, for which he also personally received two Emmy nominations.

Wayans has also starred in a number of films, including Bamboozled, Major Payne, Blankman, Bulletproof and Mo' Money, which he also wrote and executive produced. Additional film credits include The Great White Hype, Celtic Pride, The Last Boy Scout, Earth Girls are Easy, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Colors, Punchline, Hollywood Shuffle, Roxanne, and Beverly Hills Cop. And who can forget his other TV credit, his very popular ABC sitcom My Wife and Kids.

Wayans is no less talented as an author. May of 1999 saw the release of Bootleg, a humorous compilation of his observations regarding family, children, marriage, and politics. The book was a tremendous success and quickly reached the New York Times Bestseller List. There has also been word that Wayans is about to drop another book, plus his very quick partnership with YouTube for his WayOut TV venture recently ended.

Overall Wayans career has spanned over the years and the focal point of his success has been his stand-up. There is news that Wayans has several projects in the works, including a new TV show supposedly for the fall.
