Wayne Brady Struck By Laughing Fit on 'Let's Make a Deal' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 4th 2011 12:30PM
Wayne Brady had a good laugh at his own expense Tuesday on 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). It all started when announcer Jonathan Mangum read an absurd fictional passage from Brady's "diary" that included a note about him "breaking a nail while jazzercising in the East Wing," and rubbing his fingers in Jamiroquai's porridge.

Brady doubled over in laughter listening to the bit as soft piano music played. "It's that jazzercise getting to you, isn't it," Mangum quipped. Brady took about 20 seconds to compose himself, and when he finally stopped laughing, couldn't really string a sentence together and blanked on what the clue was.

Let's Make a DealWhen it comes down to it, Wayne Brady isn't afraid to sling a little mud.

The 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) host took a contestant's zonk prize, a mud facial kit, and fittingly enough, got down and dirty with it.

Brady slapped some mud on his own face and went on to torture 'Deal' announcer Jonathan Mangum. Is it just us or does Mangum seem to be really afraid of mud?

Announcer Jonathan Mangum performs a freestyle rap while host Wayne Brady acts as human beatbox and provides backing scratch noises on 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, 10AM ET on CBS).

Mangum and Brady lay down an impromptu rap inspired by a contestant wearing a tuxedo, crown and sash that reads "Prom King." But despite their best efforts, the rhyme is, unfortunately, busted.

Best and Worst TV of 2009: Joel's list

I don't think I did one of these lists last year, and I have no idea why. The election all by itself would have generated a pretty fun best/worst list. Maybe we were all suffering from information overload, and were just exhausted. Not sure.

But 2009 had a lot of interesting TV, too, just not all in one category. As I've done in the past, I'll dispense with the usual "best show" and "worst show" lists and just make up categories:


Best comeback from a shaky first season: Parks and Recreation. As I mentioned in my "return of the sitcom" story, Parks and Rec has made the biggest improvement from first season to second since... well, since The Office. It's no coincidence; Greg Daniels and Mike Schur's Office experience taught them that patience would be rewarded, both on the part of the writers and the viewers.

Let's Make A Deal: Series Premiere

Let's Make A Deal
So now we have a shiny new, 21st century edition of Let's Make A Deal. How does it stack up to the Monty Hall classic?

For the most part, the show hasn't changed a bit. Sure, some of the prizes are different now: satellite televisions and HDTVs. But there are still three doors and small boxes and big boxes and trading cash or prizes for what's behind or under those doors and boxes (and most of the prizes are the same: furniture and appliances and trips). We still have people dressed as cowboys and bananas and clowns and chefs so that hasn't changed.

But what about the hour-long format? The old show was 30 minutes. Does expanding it to an hour ruin things?
