Remember when Wayne Brady was a can’t-miss-superstar toward the end of his late 1990s run on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Well, after a decade-plus of made-for-TV movies and failed TV series’ he’s back in his natural element, spontaneously making up songs on – you guessed it – “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”
In Monday night’s brand new episode, Brady delivered an extremely catchy cover of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” while plugging in vague jokes about Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s tight end. Oh, and Gronkowski dances – funny-like:
But Brady’s musical salute to Gronk was not the highlight of No. 87s appearance on the show. Gronkowski kept talking about “eating breasts” and drinking breast milk during skits (see video below) and made it clear that his time spent in Vegas during Memorial Day weekend involved intimate moments with opposite sex (surprise). While his sophomoric boob jokes would likely kill at Ahern Middle School in Foxboro, it’s clear that Gronk isn’t exactly Louis C.K. when it comes to traditional comedy chops. You can’t be great at everything.
