Wayne Brady

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. [+]
