Known across America as host of the iconic CBS game show, "Let's Make a Deal," Brady has earned two Daytime Emmy Awards - Outstanding Game Show Host and Outstanding Original Song - as well as a 2020 NAACP Image Awards nomination for Outstanding Host in a Reality/Reality Competition, Game Show or Variety (Series or Special) - Individual or Ensemble.

His previous foray into daytime television, "The Wayne Brady Show," earned him two consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Talk Show Host. Brady was also nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards - winning one - for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for his stellar work on the American version of the improvisational comedy television series, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

In November 2015, Brady starred as 'Lola' in "Kinky Boots," Broadway's Tony Award- winning Best Musical, with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein. His interpretation of the lead role was so popular, he was asked to return for a limited run in spring 2016. In January 2017, Brady assumed the lead role of 'Aaron Burr' in the Chicago production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony Award- winning "Hamilton" for three months. In Fall 2019, he reteamed with Miranda, making several appearances in the improvisational hip-hop spectacular, "Freestyle Love Supreme."
