Shawn and Marlon Wayans may be movie stars who’ve put themselves on the map with “White Chicks” and “Scary Movie 1 and 2” among other films, but they still like to get close to their fans when they can. The duo continues to do standup, where they’re probably working out skits that could appear in one of their upcoming films. Interestingly enough, the two say they don’t appear on the stage together. This weekend, they head over to the Houston Improv for a weekend of standup November 16- 18th. As part of Hollywood’s most famous family of comedy, the brothers say that it’s been a pretty good ride thus far.

"The best thing about being a Wayans is you have a ton of fun," Shawn told

But does being part of such a huge clan have any downside?

Marlon told "The only bad part is people often confuse you with the wrong guy."

The Wayans brothers explain why they still love doing standup here.

Watch the Wayans brothers’ hilarious takeover of the Fox Morning News in Baltimore.
