Whose Line rocks
29 February 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee 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.
