RACINE, Wis., June 14, 2016 ― For most comedians, writing a comedy routine can be pretty tough. But for Marlon Wayans, who is known for his adult sense of humor, it just got a lot harder.

Scrubbing Bubbles®, the experts in messes behind closed doors, challenged Wayans to clean up his act for one afternoon and create a fresh and funny, family-friendly, stand-up performance. Today, he took up the challenge and performed his first-ever kid-appropriate comedy show to a packed room of children and parents at New York City’s Gotham Comedy Club.

“As a dad, making kids laugh about life’s ‘ugh’ moments – the stuff every parent gets after their children about – is one of my strong suits,” said Wayans. “While it’s different from my usual comedic routines, I do know what makes my kids laugh, and it was fun to share this kind of humor with others.”

As one of 10 kids in his family, and now a father of two, Wayans found inspiration for the jokes from his own home life. His routine included kid-funny anecdotes about parenting during the teenage years, favorite childhood memories and schoolyard antics. He said it was an enjoyable and rewarding challenge to write jokes in a different style and deliver them to an audience he knows so well, yet never entertains in a formal way.
