Keenen Ivory Wayans, Sr. is an American actor, comedian, filmmaker, and a member of the Wayans Family of entertainers. He first came to prominence as the host and co-creator of the 1990–1994 Fox sketch comedy series In Living Color. He has produced, directed and/or written a large number of films, starting with Hollywood Shuffle, which he co-wrote, in 1987. A majority of these films have included him and one or more of his brothers and sisters in the cast. One of these films, Scary Movie (2000), which Wayans directed, was the highest-grossing movie ever directed by an African American until it was surpassed by Tim Story's Fantastic Four in 2005. From 1997 to 1998, he hosted the talk show The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show. Most recently, he was a judge for the eighth season of Last Comic Standing.

Actor, comedian and filmmaker Keenan Ivory Wayans, who rose to fame as the host and co-creator of the early-'90s FOX sketch comedy series In Living Color, is 59 today. Artist Sam Viviano and writer A.J. Marly dismantled the show in "Entertainment Too Light Visits In Livid Color." It's one of my ten favourite MAD TV parodies of all time and a key reason why MAD #317 (March '93) is one of my 20 all-time favourite issues of MAD.
