Marlon Wayans Reveals Why He Enjoys 'Bombing' a Comedy Performance

Marlon Wayans is on the cover of LaPalme Magazine‘s Men’s Summer 2019 cover, out now.

Here’s what the 46-year-old Marlon star had to say…

On his comedy: “If I’m making a Trump joke, I need the Trump supporters to laugh the loudest.”

On his themes: “I had certain themes I wanted to speak on…as comedians, we have the freedom to explore. My special was intended to make people think, to make people feel, to make people see things from a different perspective and to unite people through laughter. We may not always agree, but if I get you to laugh at least, you’ll understand what I’m saying.”

On bombing: “My job is to go into these dark tunnels that everybody’s scared to go in and get these jokes. Bombing means I have room to grow. I’m growing. Allow me to use the stage for my progression in comedy. If jokes don’t work, that’s alright, not everything you think is funny or great. It’s part of the process.”
