Wayans buys L.A. villa

February 23, 1992

Keenen Ivory Wayans -- executive producer, writer and star of Fox-TV's Emmy Award-winning comedy "In Living Color" -- has purchased a 10,000-square-foot villa in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood.

The 33-year-old bachelor, the oldest of 10 siblings, went from majoring in engineering at Tuskegee University in Alabama to performing stand-up comedy in New York City to co-writing the 1987 film "Hollywood Shuffle," a satire about black actors struggling in Hollywood.

Mr. Wayans bought the Brentwood home, which is about 80 percent completed, for close to its $3.5 million asking price, sources said.
