Multi-faceted comedian, TV personality and actor Lamorne Morris will put his on-the-spot reactions to the test as the host of the zany and extreme BrainRush, the first game show to take place entirely on roller-coasters! Unsuspecting contestants jump on and get more than they bargained for when they sit down next to Lamorne – they are in for a wild ride of trivia and brainteasers with the chance to win immediate cash prizes, all while speeding, twisting, and looping down the track. BrainRush marks the launch of Cartoon Network’s highly anticipated CNReal live-action and reality-based programming block. BrainRush is produced by Super Delicious Productions and airs every Saturday at 8pm this Summer on Cartoon Network.

Originally from Chicago , Lamorne rose through the ranks of the legendary improv comedy company The Second City and made his TV debut as host of his own show HotWyred on BET, a witty interactive tech and gaming show. Lamorne has since become a familiar funny guy as one of BET’s most visible on-air personalities, with his comedic antics and coverage for many of the network’s top-rated shows. From signature skits like the “The Package” leading up to the annual BET Awards to segments for 106 & Park, BET’s Spring Bling: Fashion 5-0, 106 & Party, Top 100 Countdown, Grammy Nomination Special, and many more. Most recently Lamorne has been seen as the co-host of daily music and entertainment news show BET NOW with Alesha Renee. He has also appeared in numerous commercials for McDonalds, Ford and as the face of Edge ActiveCare.

Lamorne has shown off his acting chops in several award-winning independent films and shorts including April Fools (Code Black), One Word (Panel Select at Cannes) and voiceover work for animated comedy Urban Group Squirrels. He studied theatre at the College of DuPage in Chicago , IL and is a recipient of the Chris Farley Memorial Acting Scholarship. With his recent relocation from New York to Los Angeles , Lamorne has begun developing several of his own show concepts and is up for several film and television projects.
