Although it has been off of our screens for some time now, there is every chance that you will have fond memories for the old TV show Whose Line is it Anyway, chaired by Clive Anderson and featuring ad lib performances from the likes of Paul Merton, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops and John Sessions. While many of these performers have moved on with their careers to other panel shows or stand up comedy routines, Greg and Colin are still exploring the infinite possibilities of the old format. For the stage show Whose Live Anyway tickets are available from StubHub, giving you the chance to roll back the years and enjoy the observational comedy, Impressionism and general chaos of the familiar format.
90 minutes of wall to wall laughter, soundtrack not included
For this show, Mochrie and Proops have been joined by some new faces, some of whom may be familiar to you already if you follow the US improv comedy circuit, others maybe not so much, but, over the course of Whose Live Anyway, they will prove themselves to be every bit as crafty and subversive as Frankie Boyle at full throttle. The humour here is gentle and well meaning, it is not scattered with four letter words so if you ask Grandma along, she is not at risk of being too offended. Given the current nature of the material, there is no script per se, rather the compère invites suggestions from the crowd as to likely subject matter which the performers will try to make relevant and funny. By and large they suceed which is testament to the cleverness and versatility of the star turn. If a particular politician has made yet another gaffe the week of your visit, you can bet a dime to a dollar that the guys on stage will be relishing how to weave this into the show, you will not be disappointed.
exclusive to StubHub: Whose Live Anyway tickets
The best way to approach this show is with an open mind, once you take your seat, anything could happen; even the performers have no idea where the circuitous action will end up after an hour and a half. It promises to be a gag fest with all the elements you remember from the TV series recreated for your pleasure. The grand finale for this stage performance is, just like it was on the telly, the hoedown, a musical mish mash where performers try to weave together every thread of the evening into one final triumphant crescendo. The skill and adaptability of the performers really is a marvel to behold, how do they do it?.
