Hilarious!
17 April 2003 | by (Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

This new television show, brought to you each week by The WB, is simply amazing. It features many guest stars, in addition to the charismatic Tim Conway from the Carol Burnett Show. Also in such a cast are Jeff B. Davis and Chip Esten, who many people may recognize from "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

The premise of the show is incredible, which may refer back to the live Drew Carey Show episodes. The concept is like this: The cast is put on stage with half of a script, leaving room for clever ad-libs and any other games that the host, Chip Esten, may throw their direction. Also, there is a bell that is sounded off at rather random times, suggesting to the actor that said the last line to create a brand new like... You guessed it, right there, "on the spot."

Even the atmosphere of the Sunspot Hotel (the fictional hotel where the show takes place) is incredible, with the open-ended booths, lots of comfortable seating for spectators, and a tropic-style motif. It is unlike any other show I have seen, mainly because of the clever improvisational moments blended in with a sitcom script. Genius AND hilarious.
