Wayne Brady Croons About Gifts to the Audience on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

Wayne Brady sings about prizes to the audience on 'The Talk'Every daytime talk show is doing audience giveaways, especially around the holidays, but give 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) credit for trying to put their own twist on it.

'The Talk' had guest Wayne Brady improvise a song, as he often did on 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?,' based on the gifts one audience member received.

While the band played a romantic groove, Brady dispensed an artificial flame candle, a remote-controlled helicopter with a camera, a "smart pen," and a vacuum cleaner. "It makes disposal of dirt so simple," sang Brady, "Like the dirt I've put in the past."

And then, what you knew was coming, "Everything that you see," Brady sang, "This is all for you," before telling the audience everyone would get their own package of the products.

Bill Maher Likens President Obama to Wayne Brady, Wishes He Was More Like Suge Knight (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 6th 2010 5:50PM
During his on appearance on 'Fareed Zakaria GPS' (Sunday, 10AM ET on CNN) Bill Maher bemoaned the fact that President Obama didn't behave more like Suge Knight, the often incarcerated hip-hop impresario who has a history of violent behavior and unethical business practices.

"He looks beaten down, that's what disturbs me," Maher said, in response to a question about how Obama is handling his mid-term defeat. "I thought, when we elected the first black president, as a comedian, I thought in two years that I'd be making jokes about what a gangsta he was. Not that he's President Wayne Brady, but I thought we were getting Suge Knight."

"(Obama) just seems to be another in a long line of democrats that comes across as wimpy and wussy or whatever word you want to ascribe to it," Maher continued.

Apparently, the word Maher uses for wimpy and wussy is "Wayne Brady," which seems a bit unfair to the Emmy-winning actor and comedian. Maybe if Brady assaults someone -- or dangles Vanilla Ice off a 20 story balcony -- he might finally earn Maher's respect.

There's excited, then there's this.

A woman dressed as a fairy is chosen as a contestant on 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, 10AM ET on CBS). But, she's so overjoyed at the chance to play that she makes no sense when she speaks. Even host Wayne Brady is unable to translate her squeals and squeaks.

Wayne Brady Is Not a Game Show Host ... Just Ask Him

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 29th 2010 3:20PM
Wayne Brady with a contestant on 'Let's Make a Deal' on CBSThere's no doubt that Wayne Brady is quick on his feet, but what I found out when I spoke to the 'Let's Make a Deal' host earlier this month was that he's also quick to make sure his career isn't pigeonholed.

Mention that an improvised rap he did on the CBS daytime game show reminds you of one he did on Drew Carey's version of 'Whose Line Is It, Anyway?' and he'll take pains to mention that he's been honing these skills in his stage show and elsewhere for years. Ask how the chemistry between him and announcer Jonathan Mangum came about and he'll make sure to tell you that the two of them have been performing together for close to two decades.

But, most of all, Brady refuses to define himself as a game show host. "In my head, a game show host is the guy that stands there and just goes, 'And now, what are you doing, Jim?' And that's not me. I was hired to bring something else to it," he told me.

Brady and I spoke about the show's second season, its move from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, and what he thinks of Carey's recent weight loss.

Wayne Brady Discusses 'Pimp Slapping'On the latest episode of 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, syndicated), an audience member tries to assist some contestants. However, this may not be the best idea. The audience member -- a man named John -- yells advice that helps two young women win a vacation to Aruba. Then, he tries to get himself invited along on the trip with them ... to the displeasure of his girlfriend, who is sitting right next to him.

Which is when host Wayne Brady steps in. Brady warns John that if he doesn't watch out, he's liable to get "pimp [slapped]" by his girl. Excellent point, Wayne Brady! It's all in good fun, though.

Honeymooners Win Big on 'Let's Make Deal'The thing about being married is that, as a couple, you need to have good communication and good decision-making skills. And those skills are displayed by Renee and Anthony -- a pair of newlyweds who are trying to win an awesome vacation on 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, syndicated). Renee is 49 years old and is enjoying her first marriage. She and Anthony are also hoping to get enough money to go away on a honeymoon. Let's see if that works out for them.

Host Wayne Brady gives the pair a choice of either an ATM card ... or what's behind a big curtain. Ooh! Curtain! Curtain! Take what's behind the curtain!

... And that's what the couple does. It turns out that the ATM card only had $1,200 in the account; not really enough to pay for a vacation. Whereas behind the curtain is -- a free trip to the Caribbean! Good decision, Renee and Anthony! Now, just be sure to change out of your dorky 'Let's Make a Deal' costumes before going on your trip.

On 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, syndicated) host Wayne Brady leads a contestant named Rose to a mini-game, where she gets to whack her way to cash using a baseball bat. Rose has her choice of piñatas one, two and three. She picks number one, and luckily for her... she chooses wisely.

The piñata turns out to contain $3,000, which is way better than anything we got at our birthday parties. We just got some lousy candy and cheap plastic toys in our piñatas. Not that we're jealous or anything. Oh well. Anyway, congrats to Rose!

Insulting the Stars on 'I Get That a Lot' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted May 19th 2010 11:00PM
Insulting the Stars on 'I Get That a Lot''I Get That a Lot' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) is a reality show where celebrities take regular, working-class jobs. Eventually, the stars are recognized, but then they deny being who they really are. For example, Martha Stewart will refuse to admit to being Martha Stewart, even when she is told that she looks just like her. The inevitable response from the stars on the show is -- you guessed it -- "I get that a lot."

On the most recent episode, one of the stars gets into trouble while meeting someone who isn't actually a fan of his. The bad thing happens to Nick Jonas -- who gets exposed as looking just like Nick Jonas while working undercover in a clothing store.

Unfortunately, the woman who sees him isn't that positive about the whole Jonas Brothers experience. "They're terrible," she says to Nick. "Musically, they're awful." Nick handles the whole thing pretty well, all things considered.

Wayne Brady Doesn't Want To Do 'Let's Make A Deal' Forever

by Bob Sassone, posted May 12th 2010 6:02PM
Wayne BradyIt seems like only yesterday that Wayne Brady took over as host of the CBS game show 'Let's Make A Deal.' OK, maybe the day before yesterday, but still, he hasn't been host of the show long. Now he's talking about not staying with the show too much longer.

In an interview at Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith's site, Brady says he doesn't want to become the "king of the game shows," he wants to stick with acting and music. Brady also hosted 'Don't Forget The Lyrics!' on FOX.

That would be too bad. Brady is a fine game show host: personable, quick-witted, wants the contestants to win, and he has a great rapport with announcer Jonathan Mangum. But if Brady is going to leave the show in the next season or two, who could replace him? Some suggestions after the jump!

'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' producer Michael Davies will produce the remake, based on the Dick Clark-hosted game show that first hit airwaves in 1973.

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?

Model Gets in Dance-Off on 'Let's Make a Deal'The final minutes of the game show 'Let's Make a Deal' (weekdays, 10AM ET on CBS) are officially "wacky time," where anything can happen. On the latest episode, host Wayne Brady starts a sudden "dance-off " between model Tiffany Coyne and a contestant named "Star."

Who will win? Coyne seems to have more dancing experience, but she's wearing a tight dress and high heels! Star, on the other hand, is more sensibly (if bizarrely) attired in flat shoes and... pajamas. Advantage: no one. Let the dance-off begin!

Watch the video after the jump.
