Marlon Wayans is hooking up with digital production studio and talent management firm Shots to create his new sketch comedy based YouTube channel!
The Wayans family are legends in the comedy game from stand up to television and film so it’s no surprise that Marlon is looking to take over YouTube next. Fans of Marlon’s self-titled sitcom know that he’s very familiar with the platform. On the show his character is a dad whose made his wealth from being a YouTube star.
Much like his character on the show Marlon’s actual YouTube channel will feature sketches portraying everyday situations in a comedic way. Marlon will also be doing some crossover skits on his channel with other Shots comedians like Lele Pons, Rudy Mancuso, and Hannah Stocking and he will be appearing on their channels as well!
Although Shots’ channel already brings in a reported 400 million views per month they believe those numbers will soar even higher with Marlon on their roster.
“Marlon is so unbelievably talented. He’s hilarious and all his content, from his movies to his shows, are timeless,” Shots Studio CEO John Shahidi said in a statement. “He’s such an incredible comedic mind and he has a lot of amazing ideas for his YouTube channel.”
Marlon is definitely up for the challenge and long time fans know his brand of comedy is perfect for the digital platform.
“I’m looking forward to expanding my brand of humor into the YouTube arena.”
