Actor, comedian, master-of-all-trades entertainer, Wayne Brady will perform at the Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield, OH on Saturday, May 27!
In 1997, Brady auditioned for the established British comedy series, Whose Line Is It Anyway? The improv-based show featured a rotating quartet of comedians performing lightning-speed comedy games and improvised songs in front of a live audience. The content closely mirrored Brady’s skill set, and his audition made a huge impact on the producers. He was subsequently cast in several episodes. When the same company, Hat Trick Productions, brought the show stateside in 1998, Brady auditioned once again. After a grueling six-hour tryout, he was cast as a series regular.
As a result of his work on Whose Line, Brady’s career skyrocketed. His good looks, easygoing nature and triple-threat virtuosity not only made him an audience favorite and an Emmy winner but also gave him the leverage to start his own television show.
In 2001, ABC debuted The Wayne Brady Show, a weekly variety revue featuring a mix of music and comedy. A year later, the network revised the format and added a talk show element to the program. The show thrived for several years until 2004, earning two Daytime Emmys.
Brady hit Broadway in 2004 to star as Billy Flynn in the revival of Chicago. He also appeared in a notable role on Chappelle’s Show, hilariously skewering his “nice guy” image.
After touring with his own live stage show, Brady returned to the small screen in 2007 to host Fox’s network game show Don’t Forget the Lyrics. Brady has since made appearances in multiple television series, including How I Met Your Mother, Everybody Hates Chris and the animated series Sophia the First. In 2008 he released the Grammy-nominated album ‘A Long Time Coming,’ and the following year he took on hosting duties of a new version of daytime game show Let’s Make a Deal, now in its eighth season.
