There's one thing we love about Marlon Wayans, he's going to ALWAYS show love to others in the industry! Wayans, the youngest of ten children in his famous family, has a new comedy show coming to HBOMax that follows five "up and coming" comedians that he calls his "favorite comedians". In the special, the newbies are the headliners and Wayans is there to present them to the world.

According to HBOMax the show was taped live at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, and it's an hour-long special feature the comedic stylings of multi-hyphenate legend Marlon Wayans and five up-and-coming stand-ups. Serving as emcee, Wayans shines the spotlight on actor D.C. Ervin, social media star Tony Baker, niece and stand-up comic Chaunté Wayans, the daughter of his sister Elvira Wayans, writer Sydney Castillo, and noted “closer” Esau McGraw. With everyone decked out in their Sunday best, MARLON WAYANS PRESENTS: THE HEADLINERS centers on the comedians’ frank takes on fatherhood, fear, dating, disappointment, adult orthodonture, and so much more.
