After a brief stint in Las Vegas, Brady headed to Hollywood where appearances on episodes of the NBC series I'll Fly Away and In the Heat of the Night helped him make his small screen entry. He was featured in the Disney Channel TV-movie On Promised Land in 1994 and went back to the stage, where he was becoming known for his improv skills. In 1997, he tried out for the British TV series Whose Line Is It Anyway and impressed producers, who would cast him in four of the season's episodes.
A half-hour of high energy improv games performed in front of a studio audience and aired on television, the one-of-a-kind series was duplicated for American television with Drew Carey as the host in 1998, and Brady was picked to be a regular on the new series. Fielding the most ridiculous of situations with aplomb and an inclusive but sharp sense of humor, Brady was appropriately quick-witted and fast on his feet and particularly excelled in the very popular singing and dancing events, quickly becoming an audience favorite with this dependably clever and uproarious take on events such as the storytelling "Hoedown" and "Greatest Hits", an often absurdist spoof of compilation album TV commercials.
Thanks to his enormous success on Whose Line Is It Anyway' Brady had become a fixture in many an American household. He went on to be the host of the daytime talk show The Wayne Brady Show, the original host of Fox's Don't Forget the Lyrics!, and has hosted Let's Make a Deal since its 2009 revival. He has also been featured on Drew Carey's Improv-A-Ganza, Trust Us with Your Life, Dancing With The States and returned for the revival of Whose Line Is It Anyway' in the summer of 2013. In 2019, he was named the winner of The Masked Singer Season 2 on Fox.
Beyond hosting and live shows, Brady is accomplished on Broadway including playing Billy Flynn in Chicago, Lola in Kinky Boots, and Aaron Burr in Hamilton in the Chicago run. He is also a cast member on The Bold and the Beautiful and Black Lightning.
As a child, Brady struggled with stuttering due to a great deal of anxiety he felt from being bullied by other children. Brady has suffered from clinical depression. He is an advocate for fighting the stigma of mental health.
