Now, every Tuesday night at Skyloft, it’s Damon Wayans Jr.’s Comedy Night!
On Tuesday, Feb. 6th, Damon Wayans, Jr. performed at Skyloft with two top-ranked Hollywood comedians – Tony Baker and Vincent Oshana – first taking the stage.
In 2016, Wayans Jr., a long-time promoter of comedic talent, founded the booking and promoting company, Special Guest, with investor partners Kris Jones, Black Eyes Peas’ Wil.i.am, Kevin Hart, Marlon Wayans and Apple (to name a few). In recent weeks, Skyloft’s own talent booking agency, Pare Booking, merged with Special Guest. It was then that they came up with the idea of exclusive, weekly comedy shows at Skyloft.
While Damon Wayans, Jr. won’t be able to host all of the weekly events because of work schedules, he’s in charge of seeking out great comedians and “sending them south” to the popular Laguna Beach restaurant and live performance stage.
Damon Wayans, Jr., best known for his role as Brad Williams in the TV show, Happy Endings, has been performing in movies and television since 1994. Initially in roles cast by his father, Wayans, Jr. began writing comedy for TV characters, received a rare standing ovation for his debut appearance on Def Comedy Jam, and has most recently guest starred in TV shows, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Curb Your Enthusiasm, as well as the movie, How to Be Single.
