We gave it a C

Best known for his memorable characters (Homey the Clown, Men on Film’s Blaine Edwards) on the defunct In Living Color comedy series, Damon Wayans has built a career on flinging candid, hilariously incorrect potshots at everything from L.A. to his own ghetto roots. Problem is, this uneven collection of recycled In Living Color and stand-up bits — plus a few Lewinsky/Viagra references thrown in — wouldn’t warrant even one snap up from Blaine. Without Wayans’ sharp, smirky delivery, most of these observational anecdotes fall flatter than brother Keenen’s talk-show ratings did.
