  • Probably one of the funniest episodes I've seen.

    This has to be one of the funnier Whose Line episodes. The live scenery part with Richard Simmons was too funny. Everyone was in histarics...I just feel bad for Colin who kept getting stuck with him. I couldn't stop laughing though through that whole skit, easily one of the best moments for the show.
  • This ep could be the funniest episode of Whose Line Yet!

    What can I say? Richard Simmons as a guest star?!

    Well, after the first game that featured him, if you watch Richard closely, he kind of ran like a girl. Anyway, Richard Simmons is what made Living Scenery a laugh-out-loud hilarious skit! I nearly died laughing.

    So this ep could be by far, the funniest episode of Whose Line yet.
  • Funniest Episode Ever! Guest Star Richard Simmons!!

    This is my favourite episode so far of whose line is it anyway! Richard Simmons is just so out there with his gayness I knew the second he came out it would have been hillirous! Ryan was funny on this because you could see how uncomfortable he was. Even when he was standing next to him before the games started he looked uncomfortable but that made it funny! Living sceneary was the funniest thing ever! I could not stop laughing. Cloin made it so hillirous! The jet ski's part I couldn't breathe it was that funny but i also kept looking away.

    One of my favourite episodes! I hope whose line is around for a while :Dmoreless
  • Whose Line Is It Anyway? at its best.

    Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Richard Simmons appearded first when they did the green scence sketch. I glad they brought him on. I dont think i laughed so hard ever. Living scenery was by far the funniest scece/ sketch ever on Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

    To me this episode was classic.
  • After all the jokes, he finally comes on the show...

    After all the jokes, they finally guest star him! Who would\'ve expected Richard Simmons to come in this show? This episode is the funniest thing I\'ve ever seen! Richard\'s homosexuality is shining and beaming all over the place, especially in Living Scenery. I couldn\'t stop laughing! Wayne singing to Richard Simmons was also very good, with everyone doing some aerobics. Of course Ryan has to be different and does something else. Drew Carey himself was laughing so hard he had to take off his glasses! Very, very, very funny and entertaining episode. Probably one of the best guest stars of the show.moreless

    • The Song Styles with Richard was very interesting. When Richard first came out, the camera focused on Greg and his look of amazement at someone coming out who they had just made fun of in the previous game. Then, at the beginning, Richard pulled Ryan out and got Greg and Colin to join him and Wayne in dancing. Ryan made like he was turing the mirrored ball, then became a DJ, running the turntables. When Richard and Wayne were on the floor with their legs in the air, Colin and Greg just stood there and watched, prompting the comment Greg made about 'seeing what me and Colin got to see.'
