Drew Carey's Green Screen Show

Show Summary

Drew Carey hosts a very zany, "Whose Line"-esque comedy show. The catch? Everyone acts it out in front of a green screen. So, whereas regular improv uses imaginary plots and scenes, different animation studios all over the country fill in the background and, in some cases, the foreground, with the kind of images produced by our mind's eye.

After being cancelled by WB, the show will begin airing on Comedy Central on Sept 26, 05 at 9pm EST.

  • Nothing like whose line, but good either

    I've watched whose line for a long time and I fell in love with the show, when I was reading that Drew was hosting the green screen show, I remembered one of the games on whose line, "newsflash" where either Ryan or Collin goes in front of a green screen and tries to guess what's behind them based on the clues from the other two. So I decided to take a look at a video from the show, lots of recognizable characters from whose line like collin, jeff, greg, brad, and drew. But I didn't find the show too interesting, the games have been brought back to from whose line, but because of the use of the green screen it's a little obviouse that the actors didn't have much freedom in what they wanted to do and sometimes even say, which ruins the entire show. many people would expect this stuff to be right at the top of everyone's head, but not entirely everything is like that about the show. I'm sry, I'm just not a fan of the green screen and I'm sure it wasn't a big woop for everyone else.moreless
  • Why on Earth would you end a show like this?

    Drew Carey's Green Screen was genius. Improv is great but improv with animation is amazing. It contained whose line veterans such as Drew Carey, Jeff Davis, and Colin Mochrie, plus some new players. It was all very funny even when the improv artists messed up a little bit. A wide variety of games and audiance participation keep the show going with more variety. Everyone should at least give the show a try once. Whose Line fans will find themselves pleasently surprised. If you watch, you will laugh at something. I believe this can be considered one of the best shows in comedy.moreless
  • Lose the green screen, keep everything else.

    It's everything Whose Line was, but there's definitely one problem: the Green Screen. Although the animations were clever, it just doesn't add anything. I prefer to see the performers acting, and picture in my own head where they are, and what they have. The animation takes away the element of surprise, since the arists draw in what the performers say BEFORE they say it. It also makes you pay more attention to the animation than the improv itself, and the improv is what really makes the show. They still use the same great cast from Whose Line, with additional actors from the Drew Carey Show and other actors who are still very good. The addition of more than four performers is a nice touch.moreless
  • This is very different.

    This show is amazing. I havn't seen too many episodes, but from what I have seen, I have got to say, that this show is amazing and I can only imagine how they do it. I'm pleased that some of the Whose Line cast is one this show, because they make it funny for me, because I know them from another television show. This show deserves to stay on the air because there are no other shows that you could compare to this wonderful show. The plots are usual funny from what I have seen, and I hope to see more funny episodes in the future.moreless
  • Awesome comedy that is done in live animation!

    I really enjoy the program, for in which people are sent to a green screen that even though it's just green, there are people that make it interesting! The actors perform a skit as some animators make some animations, making it really wacky. That's what causes to make the skits funny, for most likely, anything can happen! That should be the future of comedy.
