We Ranked The Wayans Brothers By How Old They Are
Ah, yes, the Wayans brothers. It seems these days people are only excited by the Kardashian Clan, but there was an iconic family right before them. And Flexx has never forgot! There’s Keenan Ivory, Damon Sr, Shawn, Marlon, and the other one! But we’re here to answer life’s only universal question, who is the best Wayans brother? We figured it out by ranking them in the only way that’s fair to their talent and experience, which is age.
#5 Marlon Wayans
Coming in at dead last is 47-year-old Marlon. Marlon? Like the fish and professional baseball team but different spelling? He must be the lost Wayans because none of us have heard of him before. Doing a little half-assed research we see he was in this movie called White Chicks, but it’s not on Netflix so that means we won’t watch it. Oh well, congrats Marlon (?) for being the worst Wayans brother since you were so slow to leave your mother’s womb.
#4 Shawn Wayans
Host of the 2000 MTV VMA Awards, 48-year-old Shawn comes at number four on our rankings. Shawn’s ranking was certainly well earned for his role in the Scary Movie film series which we all somewhat remember from our childhood and yet, his most impressive feat yet was being able to be one of those sperm that fertilized his sweet mother’s egg before his brother Marlon. Way to go, Shawn!
#3 Damon Wayans Sr.
In the middle of the pack is 59-year-old Damon Wayans Sr. Most known for being the father of Damon Wayans Jr, that guy from New Girl, Damon Wayans Sr. finally got his big break hosting the 2006 BET Awards just 15 years after he co-created sketch comedy show In Living Color. His inspiring persistence to reach his dream of hosting the award show and ability to be older than two of his brothers and younger than his two older brothers landed him the converted number three spot.
#2 Keenan Ivory Wayans
The runner up here is 61-year-old Keenan Ivory Wayans. Not only did he co-create In Living Color, but we thought it was cool that he goes by his first and middle name, Keenan Ivory unlike his brothers, who seem to be embarrassed by their middle name. Thanks to the unique and special middle name pride, as well as his talent of being just a little younger than his oldest brother puts him at the number two ranking.
#1 Dwayne Wayans
Finally at age 63, we have the top Wayans brother, Dwayne Wayans. Everyone’s favorite Wayans brother, his work as a music composer for everyone’s favorite and most memorable cartoon, Thugaboo: Sneaker Madness. We love you Dwayne! Keep being the oldest!
