    Thank You Dan Patterson

    One of the many reasons the UK Version was better than the US one according to me is that it had more comedians, and they weren't the seat filler like in the US version. Be it, Jim Sweeney, Steven Steen, Stephen Frost, Sandi or the regulars Tony, Josie, Mike and Greg.. As far as Ryan and Colin are considered, they were new, so they had more ideas. Also, the quantity of games played were more in this version, so it was more fun. And personally, I like Clive more than Drew because of his quick wit. He would have been great as a contestant. I just don't understand why Richard Vranch didn't featured as an improviser. I've seen his acts in the Comedy Store Players videos, he's funny, and certainly better than few other contestants out there.moreless

    This was a show I had randomly come across while channel surfing, and had managed to stick with me since. Like all stand up comedies, they do have their funny moments, and some of which is humour beyond me.

    Everything about this show is just on the spot humor, or at least that's what they claim. Just regular comedians who manage to keep half an hour of your day bright and happy. Though sometimes the context of it may be beyond me, overall, it was a show capable of hours of entertainment.

    You gotta love how they try with humoring the audience. I had watched most of the episodes, though its the same games most of the time, it never really gets boring. After a long day of school or any kind of trouble, it's always great to see that these 4 comedians never fail to make you laugh.moreless

    Whose Line Is It Anyway? is one of my favorite comedy shows there is out there. I it is basically four preformers who preform games. For example, the four preformers are: Stephen Frost, Colin Mochrie, Brad Sherwood, and Ryan Stiles

    and they play lets make a date which is a dating game show. And it is very awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

    Its a game show, and the points don't matter.

    The original improve comedy show, inspiration for the American version of the same name.

    Some people would say that the American version of this show was the better of the two. However, I personally find the original my favorite of the two. While they are basically the same show, I just found the variety of comedians to be better, and for the show to have an all around better quality for the most part.

    My recommendation: Unfortunately I do not think the UK version is aired on American television anymore. If you like the American version then take a look at the DVD release of the UK one as well.moreless

    This is a comedy show that was unlike so many other's. This show was a competition and yet the points really don't matter.

    I loved this when I was younger, now when I watch it I'm just thinking: 'What are they wearing?!'

    The show is one of the types that you never really get bored of, a lot of the comedian's pushed the boundres of sensor ship which made the show even funnier! The dry humour from Clive Anderston and the brilliance of Ryan and Colin working together are just amazing.

    It was ashame when the show stopped airing, but it's probably a good thing that it stopped in it's prime rather than be dried out and a shadow of its former self. This show is a must see for fans of Mock of the Week or even the American version of the show.moreless

    Definitely One Of The Greatest Shows Ever.

    By frylock995, Nov 28, 2007

    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, and Greg Proops. I mean, how could you hate "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" It was one of the funniest shows ever. The show never gets dull because each game ends up completely different. This show definately beats "Saturday Night Live".moreless

    This is absolute comic genius. I have never in my life watched a show so funny that I haven't been able to breathe from laughter at every episode.

    I love this programme. Each round is unique, but it never ceases to amaze me how I can't actually say, for any round, that I don't like it, and the same for the comedians/comediennes. Even though they are so different from each other they all have a great chemistry and have worked together to create a masterpiece.

    Every time I conclude that a certain round is my favourite another round comes along and then I say that's my favourite. I can't decide because they are all so great. For me, the best of the group is Ryan Stiles who is hilarious.

    Bring it back!!!!moreless

    It's like a big game of sharades...

    By trm6, Aug 07, 2007

    I used to watch this show with my parents every night before I went to bed. It isn't my favorite show, but it was still pretty good. A group of four are given a "clue" type thing and they must act it out on stage in front of an audience. One of my favorite things they had to do was when they were given props and told to come up with as many acts as possible. They were always amusing. One thing about this show I didn't like was at the end when they were singing. It was funny at times, but not when the host volunteered to join in. I don't care for the host; he really got on my nerves.moreless
