Marlon Wayans Presents: The Headliners (2022)
Taped live at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, this hour-long special features the comedic stylings of multi-hyphenate legend Marlon Wayans and five up-and-coming stand-ups. Serving as emcee, Wayans shines the spotlight on actor D.C. Ervin, social media star Tony Baker, niece and stand-up comic Chaunté Wayans, writer Sydney Castillo, and noted “closer” Esau McGraw.

Best movie ever!
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
It is encouraging that the film ends so strongly.Otherwise, it wouldn't have been a particularly memorable film
