In an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning,” Orlando entertainer Wayne Brady explains how being bullied for stuttering helped shape him as a performer.

Brady would remain silent to avoid the bullying, he tells Lee Cowan.

”I’m going to shut up, then you can’t make fun of me,” Brady says of his childhood. “Either you break under that pressure as a kid, because bullying is no joke, or you learn to take it and give it back and do it in a way that gets a positive response.”

The interview airs at 9 a.m. Sunday on WKMG-Channel 6.

Brady talks about the 50th anniversary of “Let’s Make a Deal,” which he hosts at 10 a.m. weekdays on CBS. And he discusses his talents.

“I see myself as the guy that can do whatever you want him to do,” Brady says. ”There are so many things that I cannot do. But this stuff? The entertaining, the singing, the improv, the dancing, the comedy, the drama, the writing music, the being able to perform it, the sketch writer — I’ve got those.”
