It’s a night of improvisational comedy and music from the multi-talented, six-time Emmy Award-winner and Grammy Award-nominee — a true showbiz renaissance man. Actor, singer, dancer, improviser, songwriter and television personality, Wayne Brady comes to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, May 4 at 8pm.
Brady can currently be seen as the host of CBS’s “Let’s Make A Deal” and his work as a regular on the improvisational comedy television series, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” both the original ABC and the current CW version, has become synonymous with off-the-cuff brilliance. His most recent creative endeavor was acting alongside his 15-year-old daughter on the Emmy Award-winning CBS daytime drama, “The Bold and the Beautiful.” This show is part of the Ridgefield Magazine Broadway and Cabaret Series and Barts Tree Service Comedy Series. Visit TerraSole (3 Big Shop Lane, Ridgefield) for dinner before the show and get a free glass of house wine or dessert with your entrée when you present your ticket. Media sponsor for this event is WEBE 108, CT’s Best Music Variety.
Brady produced and starred in a highly rated summer sketch show and Emmy-winning talk show for ABC before joining forces with Dave Chappelle to create the now classic “Training Day” sketch. Brady returned to his theatrical roots with a successful Broadway debut as Bill Flynn in Chicago, and received rave reviews starring as Lola in the Tony Award-winning production of Kinky Boots. His theatrical path continued with a 3-month run starring as Aaron Burr in the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning production of Hamilton in Chicago. Brady’s debut studio album A Long Time Coming earned him a Grammy nomination. He has also lent his vocal talents to both Disney's animated series "Sofia the First," and Nickelodeon's "Loud House." His television credits include “Colony,” "30 Rock," "Everybody Hates Chris," "Dirt," "How I Met Your Mother," and "Don't' Forget the Lyrics, among others.
