He’s one of the most prominent American comedians of the last three decades, having made a name for himself as part of influential shows such as In Living Color, and movies such as the Scary Movie franchise, but now Shawn Wayans is making his way down to Australia for his first comedy tour since 2013.

Having first burst onto the comedy scene back in the late ’80 as part of the legendary Wayans family, Shawn Wayans quickly became a favourite of comedy fans due to his refreshing style of humour and fearless stage presence.

With writing, directing, and acting credits on projects such as Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood, White ChicksLittle Man, and The Wayans Bros. TV program gaining him fans all over the world, Shawn Wayans was always a friendly face in the world of laughter.

Having last hit up Aussie shores in 2013 as part of a double-header comedy act with brother Marlon, Shawn Wayans has now announced his debut solo performances in Australia, as well as his first visits to Adelaide and the Gold Coast.

Kicking off on May 10th, Shawn Wayans is set to head along to the Gold Coast, Melbourne, and Adelaide for a series of shows that will allow audiences to see why he is regarded as one of the greatest comedians of his era.

Tickets are on sale to all shows now, so be sure to get in early to secure your ticket for what is undoubtedly set to be one of the best comedy shows on Aussie shores this year.
