Charlie Sheen Appears On Drew Carey’s Improv-a-Ganza On Gsn

30 March 2011 11:40 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If you've missed Whose Line Is It Anyway?, you probably already know about Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza. Another run at an improv show, many of your favorites from Whose Line? return to take a shot at cracking you up. Taped live at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the show premieres Monday, April 11th at 8pm on Gsn.

You are definitely going to want to clear your schedule for this one. Carey brings back some of the funniest people you'll ever want to see, including: the always brilliant Ryan Stiles (sorry, he's my favorite), the never shy about his hair Colin Mochrie, and the recently of much younger television Greg Proops.

A fan of Whose Line? since the original, British version, I'm quite excited to see not only the familiar faces, but any incarnation of improv, and this one is going to be good. In case you needed »

Charlie Sheen Does Primetime With Drew Carey

30 March 2011 11:31 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For those of you missing Charlie Sheen doing something other than ... whatever it is he has been doing lately, relief is in sight. The one and only Warlock (remember when he was just Charlie Sheen?) joined Drew Carey and his company of comedians for the upcoming series Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza for a live taping of a completely improvised comedy sketch, and that sketch will appear on the series on Tuesday, April 12th at 8Pm on Gsn.

In case you were not aware, Sheen has booked a comedy tour for himself and there is some question as to whether or not he will be able to deliver on the entertainment. The general consensus is he will come out, sit in a chair, say something that connects a celestial event with one of his body parts, say "winning!" with great effect, get a huge pop - then proceed to flop for the next ninety minutes. »

Charlie Sheen To Appear On Improv TV Show

30 March 2011 10:46 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Charlie Sheen will appear in the second episode of Gsn's new primetime daily strip series Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza, which will air April 12. Sheen's gig is billed as "an impromptu appearance." The place and timing of the its taping are noteworthy: It was done at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Jan. 18. That is a week after Sheen's weekend-long binge in Las Vegas in the company of porn stars and alcohol and a week before the 36-hour bender at Sheen's house with porn stars and drugs that ended with him in the hospital and led to the production shutdown on Two and a Half Men and ultimately to Sheen's firing from the show. The cast of Improv-a-Ganza, which seems to be in the vein of ABC's Carey-hosted Whose Line Is It Anyway, features severals alums from that show. It includes Carey, Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie and Greg Proops. »
