Whose da richest in order of all the wayans brothers

The Wayans family has a combined domestic box office gross of over $1 billion dollars with more than $300 million of those coming from Keenan, Shawn, and Marlon alone.

Take a look at the net worth of the most successful of the Wayans siblings (in order of wealth):

Keenen Ivory Wayans

Keenen Ivory Wayans has a net worth of about $65,000,000.

Keenen Wayans, born June 8, 1958 in Harlem, New York, as the second of ten children. His parents, supermarket manager Howell Wayans and social worker Elvira Wayans, were strict Jehovah's Witnesses. Because of their faith, Wayans and his nine siblings were not allowed to associate with other children in their neighborhood. Instead, the family found ways to entertain each other??usually through comedy.

Like many young aspiring comedians of that era, Keenen was inspired by Richard Pryor, and decided at an early age that he wanted to become a comedian. Although he earned a scholarship to study engineering at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, he left the school to pursue his dream of being an entertainer.

While performing stand-up in the mid-1980s, Keenen met fellow comedian Eddie Murphy, and the duo collaborated to write Murphy's film, Eddie Murphy Raw (1987).

Marlon Wayans

Next is Marlon Wayans with an estimated net worth of $40,000,000.

Marlon Wayans was born on July 23, 1972, in New York City. Marlon Wayans is the youngest of ten Wayans siblings, all of whom are notable figures in the entertainment industry. Most notable among the Wayans clan are Keenen, an actor, director and writer; Damon, an actor and producer; Kim, an actress; and Shawn, an actor and writer.

The family came up from very humble beginnings. Packed into a small apartment in the Fulton housing projects on the West Side of Manhattan, the large family struggled to get by. ''We called my dad an entre-poor-neur,'' Marlon Wayans says.

Despite the poverty of his early years, by the time Marlon reached high school, many of his elder siblings were already achieving success as comedians and actors, and he set out to follow in their footsteps. He attended the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, and in 1988, at the age of 16, he made his film debut in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, his brother Keenen Ivory Wayans's parody of the "blaxploitation" film genre popular during the 1970s.

While not especially noteworthy in its own right, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka provided the blueprint for many of the Wayans brothers' later films: low-budget, family-made spoofs that, despite their outrageous comedy, also help bring to the light the stereotypes and clichés underpinning various film genres.

Damon Kyle Wayans

Damon Wayans has a net worth of about $35,000,000.

Damon Wayans was born on September 4, 1960, in Harlem, New York, as the third of ten children. Damon started his standup-comedy career in 1982, eventually landing a role in Eddie Murphy's Beverly Hills Cop (1984) and in his brother Keenen's film, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1984).

Damon's successful film career helped him land a role on the TV sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live in 1985. Damon left the show after only a year in order to pursue more film projects, including Hollywood Shuffle (1987), Roxanne (1987) with Steve Martin, and Punchline (1988) with Tom Hanks.

In 1990, Damon experienced a new level of fame as a member of his brother Keenen's new sketch comedy show In Living Color. He stayed on the show for only two years, but during that time he popularized characters such as Blankman, who later became the inspiration for a full-length feature film in 1994, and Homey D. Clown.

In 2001, Damon starred on the TV series My Wife and Kids, which earned him critical acclaim and lasted for four years. Since then, he has been involved in a series of projects including voiceover work for Farce of the Penguins (2006) and a sketch comedy show on Showtime called The Underground (2006).

In 2011 Damon added author to his career credits, writing a novel called Red Hats. Four years later, he officially announced his retirement from standup comedy. In 2016 he was cast as Danny Glover's Sgt. Murtaugh in Fox's TV reboot of the Lethal Weapon franchise.

Shawn Wayans

Shawn Wayans has a net worth of about $30,000,000.

Shawn Wayans was born January 19, 1971, in New York City. Shawn is the second youngest of 10 Wayans siblings, all of whom are notable figures in the entertainment industry. Shawn attended the Bayard Rustin High School for the Humanities in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. By the time he reached high school, several of his elder siblings were already achieving success as comedians, actors and directors, and Shawn set out to follow in their footsteps.

While only a junior in high school, he made his film debut, a brief cameo in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, a parody of the "blaxploitation" films of the 1970s written and directed by older brother Keenen Ivory Wayans.
