CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- There's not a lot that Wayne Brady won't make a joke out of, but the actor/comedian/singer/TV host has a couple of limits.
Brady, who performs Sunday night at the Clay Center, said, "My mama always told me not to talk about politics or religion at the dinner table."
And so he tends to stay away from that -- unless it's the big topic of the day and he'd look ridiculous if he didn't say something about it.
Also, Brady said, he doesn't do jokes about kids -- not anymore. He still hasn't quite lived down a joke about Trig Palin he made in August during the "Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr."
The joke was a shot at comic Jeff Ross, comparing him to Palin's son. He later apologized for the joke, but Brady still regrets ever saying it.
"The one time I made a foray into that world [of jokes about kids], I made a stupid joke that was given to me [by a writer] about a child, and it wasn't even about the child. The child was used to set up the butt of the joke, but I kicked myself the second it came out of my mouth.
"That will never, ever happen again. I don't do that."
But he might talk about reality sensation/trainwreck Honey Boo Boo. Brady groaned and said that he might do that.
He said, "Sure, I'll talk about Honey Boo Boo, but I won't go in on Honey Boo Boo because, at the end of the day, she's a child."
Then, he quickly added, "Now, I'll talk about Honey Boo Boo's mama."
