Looking back at what was left behind. Wayne Brady has made himself a household name through his work on several beloved and famous TV shows, but still hasn’t forgotten a single project he has gone through, which he regrets.
Brady recently sat down with ET’s Kevin Frazier ahead of this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards — where Brady is nominated for Outstanding Game Show Host for his work. let’s Make a Deal — and he opened up about getting the chance to develop a series with Jamie Foxx.
“Years ago, right after I met Whose Line Is It Anyway?“Jamie Foxx reached out to me and took me to dinner and asked me to work with him on a sketch show or something,” Brady recalled. “I was in a deal at the time and I said no, And the day for it I’m like, ‘Hey, man. I really wish.'”
“Because I feel like Jamie Foxx and I should be best friends,” Brady said. “I want to be a friend of Jamie Foxx.”
Although that project did not progress, Brady’s work continued. Whose Line Is It Anyway? He received the Primetime Emmy Award in 2003. Meanwhile, she won four Daytime Emmys—out of a total of 17 nominations—for her work on The Wayne Brady ShowHis recurring guest appearance bold and beautiful and his 13 years as host let’s Make a Deal.
As far as where he keeps all his shiny hardware, Brady explained, “I keep my Emmys on a shelf in my studio.”
“I always laugh when I hear, you know, big stars [say]’Well, I keep my Oscar as a door,’ or, ‘I keep it in the bathroom to remind myself to be polite.’ forget that! I want you to see them,” said Brady. “I busted my ass from Orlando, Florida, worked every crappy job so I could be on your TV every day, so give me my flowers!”
Ultimately, whether or not he takes home an Emmy this year, Brady says that being part of the TV landscape and being recognized for those achievements matters more than any award.
“It is no small feat when I mention my name to this art form in any way, shape, or form, and am recognized for it. I know there is someone at home, some child, me. watching, watching Kevin Frazier, watching Nichelle Turner or Michael [Strahan] or Cedric the Entertainer or Steve [Harvey], looking at someone, and then go, ‘Oh, I can do that too!’ And that’s deep.”
