He’s been often cited as the ‘nice guy’ of entertainment in the United States, but multi Emmy award winning Wayne Brady will have you gagging for laughter as he’s Still Making SH*t Up from May 4th as part of the NZ International Comedy Festival.

The star of Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Don’t Forget The Lyrics is well known for his improvisational genius, unique musical talents and limitless impersonation skills. An extremely versatile entertainer, Wayne Brady’s show features comedy, improv, singing and even dancing.

Brady’s appeal is far reaching – from stage and screen to music and television. A three time Emmy award winner, talk show host, musician and actor, it was his works on Whose Line Is It Anyway? that brought the lovable and playful Florida native to everyone’s attention.

From that, the offers started flooding in – hosting talk show The Wayne Brady Show, taking to the stage in the Broadway production of Chicago as slick lawyer Billy Flynn, working alongside the likes of Drew Carey in The Drew Carey Show, Tina Fey in 30 Rock and Chris Rock in Everybody Hates Chris.

“Irresistible improv humour”
Lasvegas.com

Brady also found the time to pursue just one of the many strings to his bow – he released his debut R&B album, the suitably named A Long Time Coming which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for his first single A Change Is Gonna Come. Brady also managed to release a childrens’ album called Radio Wayne in 2011 and continues to combine his passion for music and television as the host of shows such as Don’t Forget The Lyrics and Let’s Make A Deal.

Thankfully, the only choking will be from the laughter you can expect from someone who is essentially “the whole darn package.” So why miss out?
