He’s without a doubt one of the most talented individuals in showbiz today. He sings, he dances, he acts, he does improvisations like it’s nobody’s business. He’ll have you in a fit of laughter within the first few minutes of meeting him. He’s Wayne Brady and on Friday, June 1 he’s bringing his many talents to the Mirage stage for a two-night visit you don’t want to miss.
This isn’t Brady’s first comedic venture in Sin City. In 2010, Brady and his improv partner Jonathan Mangum brought the critically-acclaimed improv-based show, Wayne Brady: Making It Up to the Venetian. The 90-minute performance showcased Brady’s incredible improvisational talent as he relied on the audience for each sketch’s premise or setting. Even though he never quite knew what the audience would shout, Brady always rolled with it; the result was one hilarious show. But his incredible improvisational skills began almost ten years before his run here when he starred on the hit TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway” with Drew Carrey.
In 1998, Brady’s career took off with the hilarious show that first gave audiences a taste of how amazing he was at improvisations. In fact, Brady was so good at what he did he won a 2003 Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety, Musical, or Comedy Series for his role on the show. After a successful run on “Whose Line Is It Anyway” Brady found his voice in daytime television when he hosted his own syndicated talk/variety show "The Wayne Brady Show.” He was pretty good at that too, as he picked up two Emmys for Outstanding Talk Show Host and the show also won an Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show.
Brady has also hosted TV Land’s That’s What I’m Talking About and the Fox show Celebrity Duets. In addition to his daytime television hosting duties, Brady has even showed off his talents as an actor with guest-starring roles in "The Dave Chappelle Show," "30 Rock," "How I Met Your Mother," "Dirt," and "Everybody Hates Chris." He also brought his acting chops to the stage when he joined the Broadway revival of Chicago, playing the role of Billy Flynn. In 2004, Brady added songwriter to his resume when he wrote a song for Disney’s ® animated series The Weekenders.
Today, you can catch Brady everyday on CBS as the host of the daytime classic "Let's Make A Deal." And if you want to see the multi-talented performer in person you can catch him Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2 at the Mirage with discounted tickets right here on Best of Vegas.
