And God said let there be comedy...And he created Whose Line is it Anyway
15 November 2000 | by (il, usa) – See all my reviews

The god of comedy that is. I would give this show, on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best), a...10000000(etc) If you have not seen this show, a crime in some states, you absolutely MUST see it! Besides being a British comedy fan overall, the contestants are hilarious! Dare I say you've heard of the mighty Proopdog, Greg Proops, or King of Innuendo, Tony Slattery, Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Josie Lawrence...Somebody stop me, I could go on forever! Why are they so great? you dare ask... Well, for starters, they make everything up on the spot aka IMPROV! Can you do that...As good as they can? Of course not! Once, I laughed so hard I began choking on the Twiglets I was eating. (To my fellow Americans: A Twiglet is a British pretzel/bisquit type thing.) With all the games they play (all improv mind you) you'll be thanking me for recommending you to this wonderful show. Oh, yes, if I haven't mentioned it before, Clive Anderson is a comical genius (he's the host). So, you know what to do! Stop reading this and go watch it! GO! Well, the channel would help...Comedy Central, (9:30 and 2:00, but that is central) Ciao!
