Wayne Brady

at The Venetian - 3355 S. Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89109

The Showgirl Must Go OnOne of the strip's hardest working, multi-talented people is Wayne Brady; who does a show called Making It Up at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. And he actually makes up things used in his show. He sings, dances, does sketch and improv comedy in his 90 minute show. Known from his appearances on the TV show, "Whose Line is it anyway?" with Drew Carey, Ryan Stiles, Greg Proops and Colin Mochrie; his standout comedy brought him an award for Primetime Emmy Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety, Musical or Comedy series. Using information gathered from the audience, he makes things up off the top of his head. His sidekick, Jonathon Mangum, helps him form a skit or often a mini rock opera that deals with a person's life. They then move on to making a movie scene, from a plot suggested by the audience; which is very funny to the audience and its turns almost hysterical when they begin yelling out movie styles, like westerns, horrors and the like.

One sketch involves the audience as they are the props, another called Forward/Reverse has Mangum and Brady becoming a TiVo with stops, starts, reverses and slow motion creating a routine that has the crowd in stitches. With a wonderful voice, Wayne sings songs from James Brown, Sammy Davis Jr. and Luther Vandross. Perhaps the funniest skits involve his making up new lyrics to familiar songs; like With or Without you becoming Feels So Wrong, or Can't help falling love into I've been thinking about tacos. His mastery of imitation has surprise many as he sounds like Prince, Mick Jagger and Justin Timberlake.

But it is really the audience and their participation that decides how great the show will be. Using their suggestions, stories and other participants views has lifted his style of comedy to a new height and it is this that makes or breaks his shows. He promises a good old fashioned variety show in the beginning and his talents bring it on home. His versatility and many talents make the show great and his sense of timing, camaraderie and friendliness make sure that each show is a success.

Wayne has appeared in other shows on television including 30 Rock, Dirt, the Dave Chappelle Show, Everybody hates Chris and How I met Your Mother. He also had his own syndicated variety talk show for two years and he is hosting the Fox show, "Don't Forget the Lyrics". His voice was used in a new animated feature called "Foodfight" and he has starred in feature films such as the List and Roll Bounce. In 2008, he released an album called A Long Time Coming and his cover song for the album A Change is Gonna Come get him a Grammy nomination. It is obvious that this young man is quite talented and well worth watching his show in Vegas. He started his whole career in Orlando, Florida performing in local theaters.

This is the kind of variety show that delights people of all ages, and to make it even more interesting, you are part of the show, if you want to be. Before the show, the audience is asked to write things down relating to a musical artist or song and Wayne gets it on. At some parts, he uses audience members to become props on stage and act like a swinging door or as if you were walking on a treadmill and then he uses the humor seen or heard develops into part of the show. It involves the audience and thrills them to no end when they realize the results that Wayne has gotten from them and the audience. This is the true nature of a hardworking authentic artist with great abilities and talent.
