    Wayne Brady, Wife Call It a Marriage

    Whose line is it anyway? In California, half of it will be going to Wayne Brady's missus.

    The entertainer's wife, Mandie, has filed for divorce from the former Whose Line Is It Anyway? star, seeking an end to their seven-year marriage.

    Mandie Brady filed her petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for ending her union with the 35-year-old funnyman. She's also seeking joint legal and physical custody of their four-year-old daughter, Maile Masako.

    The couple tied the knot in 1999, one year after Brady got his first full-time TV gig as a principal player on ABC's Drew Carey-led version of the popular British improvisational game show Whose Line Is It Anyway? for which Brady won an Emmy.

    According to court papers, the pair officially separated in April 2006.

    Brady's publicist could not be reached for comment.

    Aside from his stint on Who's Line, the comic actor has appeared as a guest on The Drew Carey Show and a host of other sitcoms and television dramas, from NBC's I'll Fly Away in the early '90s to Reno 911!, Stargate: SG-1, Everybody Hates Chris, 30 Rock and even Chapelle's Show, where he spoofed his nice-guy image.

    Brady won two Daytime Emmys for The Wayne Brady Show, which debuted in syndication in 2001 and ran for three seasons.

    He's also done plenty of voice work, including Batman Beyond, Clifford's Really Big Movie, Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild and Robot Chicken. He has also appeared on stage in the Broadway production of Chicago, and he just signed a long-term engagement at Las Vegas' Venetian that will run through mid-2008.

    Brady's latest TV gig is as host of the new Fox karoke-style game show, Don't Forget the Lyrics, in which contestants will compete for a chance to win $1 million by continuing to belt out the words to pop tunes after the musical accompaniment suddenly stops.

    Don't Forget the Lyrics kicks off with a two-night premiere July 11-12.
