Whether he'll talk about her on Sunday or not, he's not sure. He's not sure what he'll talk about at all when he gets to the Clay Center.
Brady's preferred brand of comedy is improvisation. He's not working on little bits and jokes all the time. His act gets made fresh daily.
"It's just myself, a microphone and my keyboardist," Brady said.
On any given night, the show could go anywhere, but he said it typically starts with a little demonstration of his abilities.
Brady takes a collection of random words from the audience, and then puts them up on a board.
"You can make them as hard as you want, as nonsensical as you want," he said.
Then he turns the words into a freestyle rap that tells a story using names from the audience.
Brady said, "So right off the top, you know this is what we're doing."
Brady doesn't like being labeled or defined by others. He tends to think of himself in terms of hyphens. Brady isn't an actor, comedian, singer or improvisational comic. He's an actor-comedian-singer-improvisationalist.
But that's just a job title, something he does to make a living.
However, he outright hates being referred to as "a game show host." He bristles at the words, even though he is in his fourth season as the host of "Let's Make A Deal."
"When I think of a game show host, I think of some cheesy guy with a long microphone whose hair is impeccably coiffed and talks in a overly broad voice."
Brady doesn't do that. He hosts a game show that's really not a game show.
"We've turned it in to a game/improv/music/sketch hybrid," he said, although he acknowledges that some people do tune in for the spectacle of seeing people try to win cash and prizes.
Others, he believes, just come for the reliable laughs and general madcap fun.
"I'm not over-hyping it," he said, "but in my experience, it's a little more than a typical game show."
