Wayne Brady Conquers the 5 Fingers Of Death AGAIN + Responds to Backlash of Playing a Drag Queen in Kinky Boots

Wayne Brady has freestyled on Sway in the Morning more times on Sway in the Morning than some actual MCs.

This time, not only did he easily conquer the 5 Fingers of Death, but he did it as Sway threw topics at him while trying to stump him. But to no avail! Wayne was too good, he even freestyled over a 6th track — just because.

From doing Whose Line Is It Anyway, to the Wayne Brady Show, you can now catch him on the new Broadway Musical, Kinky Boots. Playing today, all the way through to March 27th.

Playing the role of a woman has always been taboo as a black man. But that’s not how Wayne sees it. Watch above as he proudly defends his role and talks about working with the great Cindy Lauper — who scored the play.
