Interesting Concept....


YouTube™ and comedian Damon Wayans have announced the debut of Wayans' official "WayOutTV" channel on YouTube. The new "WayOutTV" channel (www.youtube.com/wayouttv) will serve as a creative haven for up-and-coming writers, directors, producers, actors and musical talent by showcasing the funniest sketch videos Wayans has to offer and allowing undiscovered talent and fans to respond directly.

"We are eager to bring our funniest comedy to the YouTube community and watch how they react -- it's like 'In Living Color 2.0,'" said Damon Wayans, creator of WayOutTV. "For too long, comedy has been a one way dialogue, with comedians talking to an audience rather than with an audience. My entire goal is to make people laugh and at the same time find a way to be creative and collaborative with people who want to be a part of the process."

"We're excited to work with talented, original content creators like Damon Wayans for WayOutTV who not only see YouTube as a great way to connect with new audiences worldwide but are truly committed to providing a consistent experience for the YouTube community," said Jordan Hoffner, head of premium content partnerships for YouTube. "With his new YouTube channel, Damon has an opportunity to retain full ownership of his material while building a loyal subscriber base of fans who will tune in regularly to see, share, rate and comment on his latest sketch."

WayOutTV channel will showcase fresh sketch comedy videos produced by Damon Wayans featuring aspiring young comedians handpicked by the "In Living Color" star and sketch veteran.

Wayans will also serve as the guest editor of the YouTube home page on Saturday, February 16 at 12:00PT, which means he handpicked all of the featured videos on display. The WayOutTV channel can be found at HERE.

Other than "In Living Color," them Wayans brothers can go sit down...

Marlon is probably the only one with any real talent...have you ever seen "Requiem for a Dream"? That boy got some chops...

Damon...not so much...

Bruce Dixon said...

I dunno either.

Some of the other stuff they have planned might be funny, but this clip was stupid.

cosign @ Msmarvelous...

In Living Color was their best stuff -- although -- shhhhhhh, er, I did find White Chicks entertaining. LOL

Incidentally, I did a post about Marlon Wayans in Requiem. He was very, very good in the pic.

Kim said...

That was good gawd awful. And did I see the chick who played the wife on The Bernie Mac Show?

Invisible Woman said...

@Ms.M: Marlon was soooo good in that. I think drama might be his forte. That movie was SO robbed--it should have swept the Oscars (#562 on why I hate the Academy Awards)

Hi Bruce: I don't think we're the only ones who will be feeling this way

@Kim: Honey, I didn't even make it that far in, lol :-)

@TBA: I looked at the other clips...it doesn't get much better---like In Living Color castoffs from the dumpster.

Don't feel bad...I liked White Chicks too---I think we have an affinity for some movies people slaugter, haha

Danielle said...

I swear I'm gonna roll up in a black "Drop Squad" van and dump all them damn Wayan's in the Hudson River.

Invisible Woman said...

@danielle: Ha ha! Where do I sign up? I gotcha back!

JDouble09 said...

I'm joining with Danielle to

Danielle said...

IW and jdouble excuse me because I try to be positive, but I'm just sick and tired of NO standards. Forget LOW standards.

It's out of control.

Invisible Woman said...

@jdouble and danielle: the clips I saw were just lazy and warmed over...and working with upstarts and unknowns? They've been working with Don Reed, who did this clip, since the 80's!
