Improvisational comedy competition show in which four members of the regular cast as comedians and often with guest appearances with other comedians and celebrities and members of the audience perform various comic games and sketches.
Wayne Brady, best known for his work on the American version of "Who's Line is it Anyway?" has his own variety-type show that mixes improv, dance and skit comedy. What is now during the summer, a special, I've been told is later becoming a regular part of ABC.
I found this show while channel flipping. Nothing else was on (most literally. It was either this or Richard Simmons biography) and I thought "well, it can't be that bad". A few minutes into the show I wasn't enjoying it. I wasn't laughing, let alone smiling, and the show-dance thing became old, far too quick.
I mean seriously, people in the audience were laughing. I think even at the things that weren't jokes. It's one of those shows, where you bring in a star from your other show, and try to gain some ratings in the summer season.
Hopefully this show will fade away. Or possibly write something funny. I love the idea of a variety show in today's times. If it was better done.
1.5/5. I give it 1.5 because Wayne Brady has musical talent and he does it well when he's not trying to put jokes into all of it.
