Wayne Alphonso Brady (created June 2, 1972) is an American celebrity, singer, comedian and television personality, known for his or her work as a routine on the American variant of the improvisational comedy television series Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and as the host of the daytime talk present The Wayne Brady Show. He was the first host of Fox’s Do perhaps not Forget the Lyrics!, and now hosts the 2009 resurrection of Let us Make a Deal.

When initially he appeared on the formerly mentioned show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, he was hired to replace one member not on a regular basis. Eventually, he became one of the regular cast members and the show made him a huge star.

Brady was born in Columbus, Ga to West Indian parents, and moved to Orlando, Florida as a young child to live with his grandma and auntie. When Brady talks about his “Mother,” he is referring to his gran, Valerie Petersen, who raised him. At 16, he began performing in community theater and at the Orlando improv troupe SAK Comedy Lab where he first began developing his improv abilities. He attended Dr. Phillips High School, in Orlando, Florida, where he graduated in 1989. In 1990, he registered at the University of Miami. In 1996, he moved to La, California, where he continued developing his performing abilities.

Brady appeared as rotating replacing on the improvisational comedy game show, but soon was changed to being one of the regular members of the cast. Next, he composed, produced, and starred The Wayne Brady Show, which debuted in 2001. Even though the show was canceled, Brady’s popularity has fast grown thanks to his amiable, down-to-earth persona and everyman perspective. In 2004, Wayne proved once again that he has a quick-witted sense of humor in a memorable episode of the extremely popular Comedy Central series Chappelle’s Show. His other appearances in a variety of television series’ comprise Reno 911, Stargate SG-1, and Kevin Hill. In February of 2006, acted as a host of the thought provoking TV Land series, That is What I am Talking About. 1 year later, he began a three-year run hosting the music-associated game show Do not Forget the Lyrics, and now hosts the 2009 resurrection of Let us Make a Deal.

In 2001, his own show began to be airing, which was called “The Wayne Brady Show”. He did not only appear on it, but also served as a producer and writer of the show. Yet, his show was soon canceled but it did not stop him from being a huge star. He became so due to his down-to-earth perspective as well as amiable style.

Brady’s vocation began as one of the improvisational theater performers in the initial (British) version of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, along with Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and host Clive Anderson in 1998 when the last season was filmed in Hollywood, after which he became a regular on the American variant, hosted by Drew Carey, which was his first Stateside television exposure. In 2003, Brady won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety, Musical or Comedy Series for his work on the show, the only man to win the honour for a television series, as opposed to a special, since Dana Carvey in 1993.

#Quote
1[About his birth parents (2003)]: My father, who was in the Army, moved around. He didn't want me to have that life so he had his mother raise me, but he would still come. She actually kept me fixed in one place in Orlando, and I'm forever grateful for that. I don't talk about my mother because I really don't know her well, so it's nothing that I go into. She's alive and fine, but in the press I refer to my grandmother as my mother. Nothing bad, I just don't really know her. My grandmother IS my mother, she's everything to me.
2I know that I might be a role model, especially being a young Black man on TV. And I'm fine with that because I stand behind what I do. I do a great job. I do a clean job. So if that gets me made fun of by another Black actor, then so be it. And if some kid in the projects or even in the suburbs watches what I do and says, 'I want to be like that,' then I've won.
3To be honest, I have no desire to turn into the king of game shows. I consider myself an actor foremost, and a writer and singer, and I still tour and do Broadway shows.
4The old adage is, you strike while the iron is hot. I've been blessed enough that my irons have been hot-to-warm-to-hot for the past 10 years. So I'm still striking.
5[In 2008]: This is what I was built for, I can't save a life; that's why I didn't become a doctor. I can't drive a 16-wheeler. There are a lot of things in life I can't do, but I'll be damned if I can't get on a stage and entertain.
6[on Reeko the Skunk]: Stuart showed Reeko that he could take down that wall, and just let people like him for him. At one point I say, 'You don't like me because I'm a skunk,' and they say, 'No, we don't like you because you're a jerk.' He couldn't understand that. There was a good lesson there."
7I was teased horribly as a child and beaten up a lot. I had a horrible stutter; I got my butt kicked by bigger kids in school for breakfast, lunch and tea. I want my child to not be that person. I want her to be popular. I want her to have self-confidence. I want her to be comfortable being herself because those were the things that I never had.
8[on replacing Monty Hall as host of Let's Make a Deal (2009) in 2009]: They got me because they wanted someone a little edgier, but I get that it is daytime, so I am not going to say, 'Hey bitch, what's behind Door No. 1?' But it lets me push it as far as you can in the daytime schedule, because it is a Vegas audience.
