At least half of the audience at Friday’s comedy show will likely have the same question in mind: which Wayans brother is that?
To clarify: The man headlining at the Sun Dome this week will be Damon Wayans Sr.’s son, Damon Wayans Jr.
This event, also known as the Round-Up Comedy Show, is a part of Week of Welcome and is one of the last events in the series. Up and coming comedian Kevin Barnett will be opening for Wayans.
Wayans is known for roles such as Coach in “New Girl,” Brad Williams in “Happy Endings” and Justin Miller in “Let’s Be Cops.” His father, Wayans Sr., had a feature role on “My Wife and Kids” and his star-studded pedigree includes uncles Keenen, Shawn and Marlon Wayans.
Barnett is known for his work as an actor with the online comedy site CollegeHumor. More recently, he has written for the TV series “The Eric Andre Show.”
USF’s Campus Activities Board, which is putting on the event, has stated on their Facebook page that, unlike previous years, they will not be scanning student IDs for entrance into the Round-Up on Friday. The event will be open to the general public.
The Center for Student Involvement also posted that President Judy Genshaft and Coach Taggart will be attending the event.
USF has brought comedians such as Jay Pharoah, Nicole Byer and Chris D’Elia to the Round-Up Comedy Show in previous years.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
