The multihyphenate entertainer is joining the Beverly Hills-based management company.

Keenen Ivory Wayans has signed with Inphenate for management.

The In Living Color creator spearheaded his family’s entrée into the national comedy scene in the 1990s, as his hit sketch series launched the careers of younger siblings Damon, Kim, Shawn and Marlon, as well as future A-listers Jim Carrey, Jennifer Lopez and Jamie Foxx.

He is currently attached to direct his comedy script It Takes a Village, about an American career woman who seeks a tribal community’s blessing to adopt a child. Todd Garner is producing.

Wayans will continue to be repped by UTA and attorney Karl Austen of Jackoway Tyerman.
