LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Famed comedian Wayne Brady makes a deal with mobile couponing app, Yowza!!, signing on as Co-Owner alongside Heroes star, Greg Grunberg.  The free app, which delivers real-time, GPS-based mobile coupons directly to users' smartphones, was developed in an effort to update the paper coupon to current times.  Brady loved the idea so much he decided to partner up as Co-Owner to the company, aiding in promotion as the featured company spokesperson.

At its core, Yowza!! takes the work out of couponing.  With the majority of consumers now using smartphones as their primary source for information, Yowza!! is providing relevant and easy savings for nearby shoppers and more targeted and result-oriented marketing for businesses.  Brady, a longtime friend of Grunberg, was immediately impressed by the app and the potential savings it could bring families, especially in these rough economic times.

"With a growing daughter at home, coupons can be a man's best friend," says Brady.  "I wanted to become a part of Yowza!! because I believe in what they're doing.  Giving traditional coupons a makeover so they fit in better with our modern lifestyles is great for shoppers and businesses alike."

Brady is most well known for his comedic improvisations on the television series "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", his hosting of the recent revival of "Let's Make a Deal," and of course, "The Wayne Brady Show."  He has won 3 Emmy Awards and has been nominated on several occasions.  As part of his new role in Yowza!!, Brady will be putting his creative skills to use yet again, promoting the app in fun and entertaining ways.

"Wayne and I have been buddies for a long time," says Greg Grunberg, Co-Owner of Yowza!!.  "When I showed him what we were doing with Yowza!!, he was immediately on board.  He will bring some great creative energy to the table.  In fact, we are already brainstorming some exciting new ways to make Yowza!! even better."
