Wayne Brady: 'You have to earn the right to be dirty in comedy'

  • Hitfix
Wayne Brady has spent almost two decades proving his improvisational mettle and vaudevillian flair as a comic on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", the host of "The Wayne Brady Show" (where he picked up two Daytime Emmys), and now as a voice actor on the Disney Channel series "Sofia the First." His family-safe version of comedy made him a fitting emcee for Charmin's "Keep It Clean Comedy Show," where New York high school students performed their cleanest versions of bathroom humor earlier this week. We caught up with Brady to discuss what makes for good clean humor, the worst cliches in comedy, and the challenges of taking over for Billy Porter in Broadway's "Kinky Boots" beginning November 21.  You just hosted a Charmin-sponsored event where kids aged 14-18 told their best clean versions of scatological jokes. That seems like a challenge. Were you optimistic about what the contestants could produce? Well,

Can 'Dr. Phil' cure his Daytime Emmys curse?

Can 'Dr. Phil' cure his Daytime Emmys curse?
Since its debut almost a decade ago, “Dr. Phil” has never won top talker at the Daytime Emmys. The series hosted by Phil McGraw was bested for Best Talk Show from 2003 to 2007 and since 2008 it has lost the new category Best Talk Show (Informative). And McGraw has lost all four of his hosting bids, first to Wayne Brady (2003, 2004) and then to Ellen DeGeneres (2005, 2007). In 2003, “The Wayne Brady Show” and “The View” tied for first place among all talk shows. And from 2004 to 2007, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show" won that race. The serious subject matters tackled by "Dr. Phil" stood in marked contrast to the fun and games of the competition. Recognizing this divide, the Daytime Emmys split the category into two with "Dr. Phil" contending now for the Informative award rather than the Entertainment prize. However, in both 2008 and 2009, the show lost to the lightweight self-titled talker hosted by Tyra Banks.

Is this the year 'The View' co-hosts can finally win an Emmy?

"The View" is riding high in the ratings as it begins a week of shows from La. Now in its 12th season, this ABC morning gabfest is drawing over 4.2 million viewers a day and scoring well in key demographics. And critics are enjoying the lively discussions that dominate the front half of the hour-long talker. Last week's leaking of the pre-nom lists for daytime dramas puts us in mind of the biggest mystery in daytime -- can the co-hosts of "The View" ever win a daytime Emmy Award?

While the revolving cast has been nominated as outstanding talk show hosts in each of the first 11 seasons, they have never won the award. And the show has only won one of its 11 consecutive daytime Emmy bids, when it tied with "The Wayne Brady Show" in 2003. The ladies of "The View" have blamed their losing streak on the possibility that voters have
