Some readers might remember Wayne from the TV show 'Whose Line Is It Anyway'. For those uninitiated, he is a triple threat entertainer who can sing, dance and act. Wayne is considered America's comedy sweetheart, loved for his effortless performances in the improv genre. A-List Entertainment has brought his new totally improvised live show 'Its My Line' to Australia.
Busy. very busy. We produce about 200 shows a year on average. Carl Barron is in the middle of shooting his first feature film. There is TV interest in Kitty Flanagan and Anh Do plus a new exciting kids show with one of the Umbilical Brothers. In addition to these, we have touring with all our acts, almost every week.

Why did you decide to bring Wayne Brady back to Australia?
This is Wayne's fourth trip. He's the best in his field and the sales figures have increased each year to prove that. His show is funny from start to finish. Plus he's a good guy and it's always nice working with nice people.
What can audiences expect from Wayne's show in Melbourne?
Wayne opened to sold out shows with audiences of 1,200 in Canberra and 2,900 in Sydney. In typical Wayne-style, you get an evening of "no holds barred, balls to the wall, off the cuff, did he just do that? I make s#!t up, that boy can sing!" improvisation. So be ready to laugh and to say wow a lot!
Wayne Brady's 'Its My Line' Show opens at The Palms at Crown on 16 July and runs till 19 July 2014. It offers a night of fun. The improv comedy format is spontaneous with adult humour and musical numbers. Wayne loves drawing participation from the audience so if you get called up on stage, just enjoy the ride.
