Inventive and Playful
8 April 2003 | by (Colorado Springs, Colorado) – See all my reviews

The WB is definitely taking a gamble with "On The Spot." Not only is it a unique mix of scripted material and improvisation, it also features comedy legend Tim Conway, who does not usually come to mind when thinking about the usual WB young demographic audience. I think the gamble has paid off, because "On the Spot" is one of the funniest shows of the year. What I like most about it, is that it doesn't take itself seriously at all. Actors are seen walking around the sets, talking directly to the studio audience, and even interacting with the house band, led by Dweezil Zappa. The result is like a crazy party that we're invited to every week. Besides Conway, the talented cast also includes "Whose Line is It Anyway" actors Jeff Davis and Chip Esten, Mindy Sterling (the Frau from "Austin Powers"), Michael Hitchcock (the yuppie lawyer from "Best in Show" and the theater manager in "A Mighty Wind,"), and Arden Myrin ("Working"). Every week has also featured a surprise guest or two including Jack Black, Cheri Oteri, Andy Dick, Robert Wagner, and singer Lisa Loeb. It's playful and inventive, and definitely worth checking out.
