Top 5 Whose Line Games

Whose Line Is It Anyway?

It is not a complex show.  It’s 4 comedians and a host.  But Whose Line Is It Anyway? endures because it is simply hilarious… and cheap to produce.

Though various incarnations, from the original British series to the latest CW version, Whose Line Is It Anyway? Always cracks me up.  Well, almost always.  It seems I am not partial to the musical games.

Barring the rare all Irish Drinking Songs episode, the variations of the “games” keeps me in stitches.  And there are five in particular that I always crack me up.

Saturday Songs

This week, we take a look at Whose Line Is It Anyway?  The show which features comedians performing improvisation started in the United Kingdom, but has appeared on American television, most recently on the CW with Aisha Tyler as the host.

One of the easiest targets of the comedians on the show have always been the host (something which we really have yet to see on the newest version).  And one of the biggest targets was Drew Carey.

The following is an edited clip of some of the funniest jabs against Drew during his run on the ABC/ABC Family version of the show.  Some of the featured comedians are Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, and Wayne Brady in some hilarious improv.

Concerts I Have Seen

Let’s take a little musical journey, one that’s a little bit personal.  Granted, I might not remember every concert I’ve seen, but I have been to a few.  So, lets start with the earliest one I remember

Saturday Songs – July 28, 2012

I have to admit, I am not a baseball fan.  I find the game slow and boring.  But, I am a fan of a good laugh.  And one of the best comedy teams ever has to be Abbott and Costello.

Surprisingly, one of their finest routines has to do with baseball, which is, as I said, one of my least favorite sports.  Who’s On First is a masterpiece of double talk (mostly from Bud Abbott) and confusion (mostly from Lou Costello).  While the routine is derived from other play on words routines performed on the vaudeville circuit, it was Abbott and Costello who honed it to perfection.  The routine lives on in recordings and film.

Audio versions of the routine are available on iTunes.  The routine was also featured in the film Naughty Nineties, available on DVD from Amazon.com, and as part of The Abbott & Costello Show, the complete series DVDs also available on Amazon.com.

“I went to this restaurant last night that was set up like a big buffet in the shape of an Ouija board. You’d think about what kind of food you want, and the table would move across the floor to it.”
