Yesterday Marlon Wayans returned to prime time TV. Who remembers the Wayans Brothers? His new sitcom is simply called Marlon. As expected, Marlon is hilarious like the man it is named after. 2 episodes aired back to back on NBC. So, families were rewarded with a full hour of funny. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Marlon goes wild. I've never seen a comedian more physical than him. Have you? He reminded me of Martin. I feel Marlon has gotten funnier over the years.
The other characters were great too. I got love for Essence Atkins and her portrayal of Marlon's ex wife. Plus, Bresha Webb had a nice role.
I want to see Marlon succeed. There are 8 shows already lined up; and I believe there's potential for more. If you want to literally laugh your ass off, then watch Marlon Wayans perform on Mondays.
In addition, Marlon Wayans has a new movie on Netflix called Naked. The movie was released on August 11th. I highly recommend seeing the movie. I watched it last night. You'll enjoy the film because it's original.
The film is about a substitute teacher (Marlon Wayans) marrying a doctor (Regina Hall). Her father thinks she could do a lot better. I don't want to give away too much of the plot because I want you to watch it. However, Marlon's character gets stuck in an elevator naked over and over again. I believe you'll like it.
Wayans plays the hell out of the character. Overall, Naked was well written. I gave it 5 stars because that's the highest rating you could give. Brian McKnight makes a noteworthy appearance. Does he get naked too? You got to watch and see.
Marlon Wayans isn't putting all his eggs into one basket. He is diversifying his talents. Moreover, he has mastered comedy.
