Did You Know?


In 2016, Colin Mochrie was interviewed about the game of Improbable Mission, which Ryan Stiles completely lost it when Mochrie pretends to scrub a shirt with a cat and stated that himself and Stiles got into a little trouble at the beginning of the game and that he and Stiles were a little on edge and that the gag about the cat made Stiles lose it and it helped him to calm him down.

One of the funniest shows ever created
2 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Now, I'm not just saying this to prefer or anything, but I always did enjoy the US version of WLIIA better than the UK. Both are hysterical. But I saw the US version first and started watching the UK episodes, and they are funny, but the US version always got me in tears.

This show is beyond hilarious. Without scripts, 4 performers entertain through imprave. With fun games, suggestions from the audience, and a fun host this show should be watched. I lost track of it for a while until I found out that it's on ABC family at night. And I'm still on the floors crying from laughter. This is without a doubt one of the funniest shows I have ever seen in my life. Watch it!
