Wayne Brady      

TV Personality, Comedian & Actor

Although Wayne Brady might be best known for his work on "Whose Line", he's had quite a successful career. He hosted "The Wayne Brady Show", for which he twice won the Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host, for several seasons in the early 2000s. Wayne Brady continues to lend his voice to video games and television animation as well. For the past decade, he's also hosted the game show "Let's Make a Deal". In 2018, Brady took home an Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host. He also penned the song "30,000 Reasons to Love Me" for the show and was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Original Song. Brady's musical talent isn't just for laughs when he's doing musical segments such as "Greatest Hits" on "Whose Line", either. His resume includes theme songs, an album of children's music, taking on the mantle of Aaron Burr in "Hamilton", replacing Billy Porter as Lola in "Kinky Boots", playing Tom Collins in "Rent", and recording a studio album that made it to No. 2 on Billboard's US Heatseekers Albums chart. Brady's cover of "A Change Is Gonna Come" from that album was even nominated for a Grammy Award. The Orlando native has been so successful that the mayor of his hometown dedicated a day to him.
