Stevie Wonder in Performance at the White House: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize 2008 - 2009 (TV Show)
A talented, remarkably energetic African-American performer who got his start in community theater in Florida, Wayne Brady was a skilled dramatic actor who came upon improvisational comedy early on in his career. In that medium, he found his calling and later got his big break as a stand out regular cast member of the ABC hit improv series "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" (1998- ). Originally set on a career in the military, Brady wowed audiences with his performance in a high school stage production and later made his professional debut in the legendary drama "A Raisin in the Sun." Honing his craft in varied local productions, Brady next joined Orlando's Sak Theatre and started his comedy work. Here he began improvisational comedy, proving a natural at the high pressure, very difficult task of finding humor within a set situation on the fly.
