From MPAC:
Multitalented comedian, actor and singer Wayne Brady returns to MPAC for an evening of comedy on Saturday, August 25 at 8 pm. Tickets are $49-$79.

Five-time Emmy winner and Grammy nominee Wayne Brady is a true show-biz renaissance man. Actor, singer, dancer, improviser, songwriter – he’s done it all throughout his long career.  Most recently, Wayne starred as Aaron Burr in the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton at the Private Bank Theatre in Chicago.

Wayne got his big break on first the British and then the ABC version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? His name became synonymous with off-the-cuff brilliance. He went on to star in and produce a highly-rated summer sketch show and an Emmy-winning talk show for ABC before joining forces with Dave Chappelle to create the now classic “Training Day” sketch, showing audiences both sides of his comedic skill and depth as an actor.

Brady returned to his theatrical roots with a successful Broadway debut as Billy Flynn in Chicago. He has guest starred in shows such as 30 Rock and How I Met Your Mother in addition to hosting Don’t Forget the Lyrics. His film work includes feature films Crossover, The List, and most recently 1982 from director Tommy Oliver.

This past year he performed live on his sold-out world tour and guest starred on the new SyFy series Aftermath. He was welcomed back to Broadway and received rave reviews for his role as Lola in the Tony Award-winning production of Kinky Boots while lending his vocal talents to both Disney’s animated series Sofia the First and Nickelodeon’s Loud House.

Brady will return for his 8th season as the host of CBS’ Let’s Make a Deal, as well as the 5th new season of Whose Line Is It Anyway? on the CW this year.
