When it comes to innovators in the entertainment industry, Keenen Ivory Wayans is right up there. He helped launch the careers of Jim Carrey and Jamie Fox through In Living Color and planted the seeds for Mad TV and The Chapelle Show in the process.

With all of that being said, I feel he deserves way more recognition for his body of work. In addition to directing Scary Movie, White Chicks, Little Man, and several other cult classics, he also is credited as a writer on Eddie Murphy Raw.

I can’t wait to see what he produces next and how the Wayan’s family will continue to evolve in the 21st century.
