Super Laughs

Who knew that after all was said and done, the two youngest Wayans brothers would be the funniest and most successful? That seems to have happened, as Shawn and Marlon Wayans' careers have outlived those of their older brothers Keenan Ivory and Damon. It all started with Keenan, who orchestrated a new era of multicultural comedy with his sketch show In Living Color, which became the springboard for the whole family. Shawn and Marlon kept it up, and between Scary Movie, White Girls and their hit show on the WB, the two keep cracking themselves up (and everyone else) year after year, no matter how juvenile the joke. Sure, this stuff isn't for the highbrow among us, but if you like a really good fart joke as much as we do, you might want to check out the brothers at the Arlington Improv, 309 Curtis Mathes Way, this Thursday through Saturday. Tickets are $35. Call 817-635-5555 or visit improv.com for information.
