Episode #01

Aired Thursday 8:30 PM Oct 07, 2004 on Comedy Central



  • Trivia

    • There is an obvious edit made to the game of Sentences. After Jeff reads the paper that says, "What's that in your pants?!" he crumples it and tosses it aside. Right after that, Greg's voice over delivering a command from an airfield, shown in the next scene, is heard. Watch Drew, though; as Greg is speaking, he throws aside a crumpled piece of paper. Drew must have delivered a line here that was edited out.

    • In "Sentences", although the animators gave Drew a hat, they forgot to give Drew earrings. (Notice at one point Drew pretends to be taking earings off, but there's nothing on his ears. Plus, they added in sound effects for the motions, too.). Also, at one point, Drew pretends to take a drink. They added in sound effects of liquid pouring, but, the animators did not put a glass in his hand.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Chip Esten were the three most recurring performers on "Whose Line?" but none of them appeared in a single episode together. Now all three appear on this show at the same time.

    • In Freeze Tag, it starts out with two, but on occasions, three or more wound up in a scene. In the times it was played in the UK version of Whose Line, and on the Improv All Stars pay-per-view, there were only two per bit.

    • "New Choice" is another version of the game "Quick Change" on Whose Line, except the person calling has to say "New Choice" instead of "Change."

    • First air date on Comedy Central - 11/14/05.

    • The animation of the Horse Race Track in "One Syllable Word" is directed and animated by Eric Goldberg, best known as the animator of The Genie in Aladdin and was co-director of Pocahontas and animation director of Looney Tunes: Back in Action.

    • "Sentences" is essentially "Whose Line" from WLiiA? except they use numerous sentences.

    • Jonathan Mangum, Sean Masterson, and Kathy Kinney do not appear in this episode.
