I’m a big fan of Improv! I LOVED Who’s Line Is It Anyway? Originally with Clive Anderson and then with Drew Carey. Unfortunately, Who’s Line eventually went off the air and the cast pursued other avenues of entertainment. Recently though, Drew Carey and the cast of Who’s Line reunited in Vegas for a new show, also on the Game Show Network, called Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza! Every night I record it so I can watch it while I’m on the treadmill in the morning! It helps me giggle my way through my morning workout!
As with any Improv there are funny skits and there are not so funny skits, but in my opinion with the cast they have it’s mostly funny. My sis-in-law Denise, who I recently turned on to the show, has said she doesn’t know how I don’t fall off the treadmill laughing? Well, let me tell you,there have been a few occasions where I’ve come close.
In this one skit they do, the audience suggests a topic and two of the cast members play late night talk show hosts selling music about that topic to their audience. They get to choose the title and genre of the song as it relates to the topic suggested by the audience. Two other cast members have to come up with lyrics on the spot with the accompaniment of a pianist. I about rolled off the treadmill when Chip Esten and Jeff Davis sang this song suggested by Colin Mochrie called “Wipe The Window Hang The Freshner Lets Go” in the style of the 80’s.
In another skit they bring an audience member up on stage, ask them a few questions and two of the cast members serenade them in a song about their life. Oh My God… I have never come closer to falling off the treadmill than while watching this episode. The woman they bring on stage is older, but a good sport as well as absolutely hysterical!
So now do you see why I love it? The whole cast ROCKS!
