Wayne Brady wasn't the class clown or the guy everyone said should get onstage and do stand-up. He was the quiet kid in the corner who watched everyone. He studied people, observed what made them laugh and wrote down funny bits. “I've always wanted to be an actor. That's the only job I wanted to do,” he told The World-Herald. “It's like any other job that's not just a job. It's a craft. It's a passion. It's something that you want to do for the rest of your life.”

Now, he makes a living as a funny guy. Many people know him from stints on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” which is making a comeback, and as the host of “Let's Make a Deal.”
