I Love Comedy
I mean, who doesn’t, especially if it has a Wayans’ in it?
Marlon, a 20 minutes comedy family show, features one of the funniest acts of 21st Century (Marlon Wayans) and greatest actress (Essence Atkins) - as a recently divorced couple working amicably in bringing up their two kids; Marley (Notlim Taylor) & Zack (Amir O’Neil).
Every cast member is a genius of their act:
MARLON; what better way to describe him than this loud, annoying, funny yet loving and caring ex husband, dad and friend.
ASHLEY (Essence) is all rounded beautiful, classy and with looks every woman wishes she will have at her age.
YVETTE (Bresha Webb) is the kind of girlfriend every girl deserves to have. Beautiful, Outgoing, Outspoken, Loves God & can’t get enough of men --- not necessarily in that order.
STEVIE (Diallo Riddle) a highly educated yet unemployed best friend to Marlon, who despite being in his 40’s, crashes at Marlon’s couch. Plus, he has a hidden crush on Yvette.
And of course there are the kids. The smart and pretty one (Marley) and the not so smart and cheeky one (Zack).
It’s not just the characters that gets me glued, but don’t you just love how well Ashley and Yvette dress. And their respective houses are too sophisticatedly furnished (bet it’s because they are interior designers).
Though I don’t find it to be that much funny, currently there isn’t something funnier on TV so, Marlon wins. And you get to enjoy two episodes per week!
Of all the episodes, this’s what I loved most:
