Marlon Wayans: Good Grief showcases Wayans' unique brand of comedy, blending physical humor and hilarious commentary, with a surprising amount of heart. Taped at the iconic Apollo Theater in Harlem, comedy meets therapy as Wayans works through his grief after recently losing both of his parents. He shares how his father taught him to be a man, the requirements to join the "Dead Mama Club," the surprises you encounter when changing your aging parents' diapers, and who is the funniest Wayans.

Wayans and Rick Alvarez launched Ugly Baby Productions in 2013 with the goal of producing filmed entertainment, with an entrepreneurial spirit, that reaches large global audiences. They succeeded with three #1 global hits on Netflix Naked, Sextuplets and The Curse of Bridge Hollow, the powerhouse indie franchise A Haunted House, and the three most viewed comedy specials currently on Max, among many others.
