Stepping Out

The Wayans Brothers reunite

The showbiz family visits Long Island this weekend


On Stage

The Wayans Brothers

The multi-talented Wayans Brothers — four of the funniest guys in Hollywood — show why they’ve kept audiences laughing for decades when the showbiz family brings their sketch-standup show to the area. The dynamic siblings — writer-director-actor-producers Keenen Ivory Wayans, Damon Wayans, Shawn Wayons and Marlon Wayans — join forces in an evening of irreverent comedic spoofs and satires. Performing, talking and just being the funny brothers they are, the family business is put on display for all to see, almost 25 years after the first episode of “In Living Color,” the landmark Fox television show that started it all, aired.

Saturday, July 19, 8 p.m. $69.50 and $49.50. NYCB Theatre at Westbury, 960 Brush Hollow Rd., Westbury. (800) 745-3000 or
