Top Vegas Shows - Wayne Brady: Making It Up!Described once as the “friendliest black man on the planet,” comic extraordinaire Wayne Brady has been on a meteoric rise to stardom for over a decade.

Wayne Brady was a fixture on America’s version of Whose Line is it Anyway, co-starring Drew Carey.

Due to legal hassles, Drew and crew cannot use the name, but the Improv All-Stars is basically the exact same show with much of the same cast.

Although Drew and the show roll in around the same time every year, they’re also known to pop up at other times and in other locations. It’s not an ongoing show in Las Vegas, but dates are set frequently enough that anyone wanting to watch it can easily set their Vegas trip schedule for the purpose.
