Did You Know?


This episode guest-starring Richard Simmons is widely considered by fans and critics alike to be among the funniest episodes of the series. Greg Proops, Drew Carey and Wayne Brady especially found it difficult to perform skits without breaking character or laughing hysterically in the games Simmons was involved. By poking fun at it, this episode also marked one of the only times in his life Simmons at least acknowledged the speculation regarding his sexual orientation. He has otherwise steadfastly declined to comment on such personal matters. See more »

Tears and Laughter
27 November 2013 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Found this episode later on, I have seen first few seasons and they're always interesting but this one caught me off guard. I heard about Richard Simmons episode as one of the best ever but I was curious.

I Google'ed about him and found out he likes to dress a bit over the top and he is a fitness guru. In this age, one might consider it normal. But the real fun began when he arrived in.

All I can say is, you wished you were in the audience, I have never seen an audience respond in this way. I was banging my computer table, screaming and just losing control.

I mean I thought I might die if they don't tone it down. It was just brilliant. I think this might be the best episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway ever.

If you haven't seen it, torrent it, look it up on YouTube, just watch it. You will not be disappointed.
