Damon Wayans: There Was No Food, But A Lot Of Fun

Damon Wayans was with us before a big weekend at the Ontario Improv. In the interview with Maria and Araksya, Damon also introduces us to his geeky side with two new smartphone apps that he has developed.

Check out the full video interview HERE with Damon Wayans on our FOX 11 YouTube Channel.

Damon Wayans is most fondly remembered for his three seasons as writer and co-star on the Emmy Awardwinning series In Living Color. There, he created sketch characters like "Homey the Clown," "Handiman," and outrageously gay film critic Blaine from Men on Film. His writing for the series earned him two personal Emmy's nominations.

On the big screen, Damon has starred in Spike Lee's critically acclaimed film Bamboozled. He also starred and executive produced independent film, Harlem Aria. Other feature film credits include starring roles in Major Payne, Blankman and Mo Money, which he also wrote and executive produced. Wayans also starred in The Great White Hype, Celtic Price, The Las Boy Scout, Earth Girls are Easy, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Colors, Punchline, Hollywood Shuffle, Roxanne and Beverly Hills Cop.

Damon has enjoyed tremendous success in stand-up. After starting his career in 1982 touring the comedy club circuit, he landed a role as a featured player on the famed NBC series, Saturday Night Live. Wayans went on to star in his own critically acclaimed HBO specials, One Night Stand, The Last Stand, Still Standing and Way Out.

The ever-evolving Damon Wayans is now a smartphone app developer of new mobile phone apps, Flick DAT & Diddeo. The app (Flick DAT) allows users to create unique business cards featuring 30 seconds intro videos all shareable by the flick of the thumb. His other app (VHedz) is a fun, creative, innovative, and easy way for users to create up to 15 seconds video, inside of a small TV screen attached to a posable stick figure with simple and video capture. 

Both apps are available on iOS and Android devices.
