Wayne Brady: I ‘would gladly slap the shit out of Bill Maher’ [AUDIO]

On this week’s “Girl on Guy” podcast with Aisha Tyler from Vibe magazine, comedian and television sitcom personality Wayne Brady said “I would gladly slap the shit out of Bill Maher in the middle of the street.”

In 2010, Bill Maher said he wished President Barack Obama was less like Brady and more like Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight.

In response, Brady said that just because Maher likes black prostitutes, doesn’t mean he understands the black experience, adding that he wouldn’t appear on Maher’s show because he would not be able to get the last word.


“But even Bill Maher — like, I’ve had Bill Maher twice now, when referencing Obama, he’s like, ‘Yeah, you know, with your Wayne Brady,’” Brady said. “So, that means it’s a diss to Obama to be called me because he wants a brother-brother, or what he perceives. Just because you fuck black hookers, just because you have that particular black experience. And I have to stop myself from getting into it, Bill, because I realize the thing is that if I were to go on his show, or even do it online, I’m not going to win because as soon as you back off, he still has his platform to say whatever he wants to.”

But Brady did have one idea on how to deal with Maher: “Slap the shit out of” him.

“If he once said I want to know how black Wayne Brady is — that chip on my shoulder says that rarely do you threaten a man and you should not fear anyone,” Brady said. “Now, I’m not saying I’m Billy Badass, but if Bill Maher has his perception of what’s black wrapped up, I would gladly slap the shit out of Bill Maher in the middle of the street, and then I want to see what Bill Maher would do.”

“Now, Bill Maher would call the cops and he would have his lawyer — I’d get sued and lose my house and it’s not worth it for me,” he continued. “But the black man part of me would be so satisfied to slap the shit out of him in front of Cocoa and Ebony and Fox, the three ladies of the night that he has hired … and Fancy, who also happened to be named Tyrique at one point.”

“I took that personally,” he continued. “You mean to slam the leader of the free world with my name because I’m not the aggressive black man? That’s fine. Let’s go, Bill.”
