Trivia

Drew Carey often jokingly introduced the Hoedown as "Our favorite game in the whole wide world." The cast members hated it with a passion. Ryan Stiles hated it so much that many of his songs insulted Carey, the Hoedown itself, or both. See more »

Quotes

Ryan Stiles: [scene to rap, Top Gun] I'm a bird flyin' through the air/come near me if you dare/my feathers are white and my beak is flat/I hit your windshield and go SPLAT!
Colin Mochrie: [flapping his arms like a bird] I don't have a ryhme, boo-hoo.
Wayne Brady: I thought he was a bird/but that ain't that/'cause everybody know's Canadians can't rap.

Whose Line rocks
29 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

This show is great and so much more hilarious than so many sitcoms on ABC and other networks. Drew Carey is a pretty good host. Maybe not as good as Clive Anderson but he's still funny and does an okay job. Some may disagree with me but I think the best performers on this show are without a doubt: Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, Wayne Brady, Brad Sherwood, Chip Esten and Josie Lawrence. The best games, I think, are: "Props", "Questions only", "Scenes from a hat", and "Hoedown". What's great about this show is how the performers are not afraid of looking stupid and just do crazy things at random times in the show. This show is a winner.
