After getting his big break on first the British, then the ABC version of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Brady’s name became synonymous with off-the-cuff brilliance. He went on to star and produce both a highly rated summer sketch show and Emmy winning talk show for ABC and then joined forces with Dave Chappell creating 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, and a slew of television roles guest starring on 30 Rock, Everybody Loves Chris, Dirt, as well as recurring on How I Met Your Mother, and hosted Don’t Forget the Lyrics. His film work includes the feature films Crossover, The List (a romantic comedy with Sydney Tamiia Poitier), and most recently 1982 from director Tommy Oliver. This past year he’s performed live on his sold out world tour Makin’ Sh*t Up, started on the new Sci-Fi series Aftermath, was welcomed back to Broadway and received rave reviews starring as Lola in the Tony Award winning production of Kinky Boots, while lending his vocal talents to both Disney’s animated series Sophia the First, and Nickelodeon’s Loud House. He will return for his 8th season as the host of CBS’s Let’s Make A Deal, as well as the 5th new season of Who’s Line Is it Anyway on the CW this year.

Wayne Brady will join Ari Afsar as Eliza Hamilton; Miguel Cervantes as Alexander Hamilton; Alexander Gemignani as King George III, and Chris De’Sean as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson. The book, music, and lyrics were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The musical won eleven 2016 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score, Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, Choreography and Orchestrations. Mr. Miranda received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Hamilton. The musical is currently playing on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. A touring production begins a 21-week run in San Francisco in March 2017, followed by a 21-week engagement in Los Angeles. A London production will also be mounted this year.
