It’s His Line: Wayne Brady Performs at Chicago Theatre Feb. 28th

We have a confession to make. We consider Wayne Brady America’s Sweetheart. He’s got charm to spare, and he can also sing, dance and make us collapse on the floor in laughter at the drop of a hat. (Or with a suggestion pulled from one).

So when we heard he was headed to the Chicago Theatre to perform, we immediately got in on it. The show is part of Brady’s “It’s My Line” tour and will be a great way to send off the bitter, uber winter-y February we've had.

Indeed, we've been very Brady fans since the early days of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", where he earned every ounce of an Emmy with crazy antics up to and including pelvic thrusts with Richard Simmons.

And with the new iteration of "Whose Line" with (also hilarious) host Aisha Tyler, we’re seeing he’s just as hilarious now as he was back then.

In fact, it was thanks to Aisha’s podcast interview with him that we got to know him a bit more intimately. When he’s not making people short of breath with his comedy, Brady is a hard worker and a damn cool dude. From time with Broadway in Chicago to talk shows of his own and, oh yeah, guest starring on one of the most popular TV shows on the air right now, Brady’s still at the top of his game.

You could and should watch Wayne when Whose Line returns to The CW with all new episodes on March 21st. But we've got a more appropriate audience suggestion this time around.

Head to the Chicago Theatre’s website or Ticketmaster, snag some tickets for the 8 p.m. show on February 28th, and prepare to be amused. Or else Wayne Brady will have to...well, you know the rest.
