Comedy fans lined up for over an hour for the chance to get an autograph and photo with the star of Scary Movie and White Chicks, who hosted a meet-and-greet at Grand Cinemas Joondalup for half an hour before the screening.

‘It was a rare treat to have a Hollywood celeb like Marlon actually meet and greet before the film,’ Chris Smith said. ‘I’ve enjoyed his comedy since In Living Colour was on TV ” pure gold.’

Before the film, a spoof that takes aim at the ‘found footage’ horror phenomenon, Wayans thanked fans for their support.

‘Hopefully this one stays in the tradition of what you expect from us,’ he said.

‘It’s wild, it’s crazy, it’s raucous, it’s naughty as all s***. Basically it’s Paranormal Activity if it happened to a black couple.’

He also asked the audience members to tweet him their opinions after the movie.

‘You guys are my critics. That’s who I do movies for. I do it for the paying audience, not for the critics,’ he said.

A Haunted House will be released in cinemas on May 30.

Wayans was in Perth with brother Shawn as part of the Perth International Comedy Festival. See more pictures, at facebook.|com/WannerooJoondalupTimes.
