Aisha Tyler hosts this skit comedy show where the actors on the show, usually Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles and another guest star or two do different comedy skits. It's all improv and made up on the spot.
Colin and Brad's TWO MAN GROUP is a riotously funny, interactive, and completely improvised tour de force. Colin and Brad create pandemonium on the spot in one of the funniest live shows you will ever see.
A taping with Ryan Stiles was recorded but, as of November 2005, it remains unaired. See more »

I was wondering if you could take a look at this luggage belt, it seems to be broken. Look what happens when I turn it on

We tried replacing the motor with a Pac-Man. It didn't really work... it takes little bites out of the suitcases.

The use of the technology on the Green Screen Show is very clever but looks like a lot of hard work. As others have written though, the concept of drawing in details later definitely clashes with the whole premise of improv. This is two halves that don't come together.
Firstly, the improv: the performers are doing their thing ad-hoc, and they're funny. They have a live audience that laughs at their jokes.
Secondly, you have brilliant animation. This would be great in its own right, but it has no live audience (which is fine for animation, ordinarily, but here it doesn't work).
The reason this combination feels so odd is that you can't shake the knowledge that the studio audience are only seeing the improv, and only laughing at the improv, whereas we (the home audience) get to see the added detail and jokes - which have no audience laughing at them. The result is the same uncomfortable feeling you get when you realise that a sitcom has a laughter track (canned laughter).
Great effort, but the format (Whose Line is it Anyway) wasn't broke, so why try to fix it?
