Brady began his career in Orlando, Fla. where he performed in several community theatre projects. His career took off in 1998 with the success of “Whose Line is it Anyway?” for which he won an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety, Musical or Comedy Series. Brady has made several guest appearances on hit TV shows including “30 Rock,” “How I Met Your Mother” and “The Dave Chappelle Show,” among others. He later went on to host his own syndicated talk show “The Wayne Brady Show.”
Having conquered television and theatre, Brady took on the music industry and earned a 2008 GRAMMY® nomination for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for his single “A Change is Gonna Come” off of his debut album A Long Time Coming. In 2011, he released a children’s album Radio Wayne with Disney Records. Brady currently hosts “Let’s Make A Deal,” the daytime classic where contestants dress up and test their luck to win cash and prizes.
