    Improvisation is a skill you learn - it does help to have a funny face though. And it's totally different from scripted comedy - I recall a dreadful sitcom by Mike McShane and Sandy Toksvig that proved they should stick to improv.

    I find it ammusing that they went from being very fringe improv (and often not that funny) to having Ryan and Greg on full time and now in the US it's pretty much the Ryan, Greg, Wayne and random other show..

    ...and so much better it is for it, find the one with Robin Williams on youtube, the gospel song about the air traffic controler is inspired.

    "The Big One", it was called - the only thing I remember is that it had a fridge that would only open if you hit it and shouted "bastard"

    edit: for the word "onkly"

    I only watch it if Ryan and Colin are on. I love it when they try and catch each other out.

    I never liked the original British one as much as I liked the US one.

    I've always found his comedy a little to loud and brash for WLIIA.

    I know this is from five years ago but the US one never had an obviously coked out Tony Slattery performing on it so it will never be as good. Looking back on it know and you can just tell his was tripping balls every once in a while.

    Oh and I could just never get on with the audience in the US version, they're just a bit too enthusiastic.

    @Mr_Sleep I always found the American one too self congratulatory. The host (whose name I know but can't remember) was never as good as Clive Anderson.

    I think Drew Carey is a better host. He actually takes part in the games himself sometimes, which is something Clive Anderson never did.

    This is what he looks like now.

    @RobTheBuilder Yeah, I feel the same way, I always preferred Anderson's sardonic style.

    I enjoyed both the UK and US versions equally, I'm so glad this show is coming back I had many a belly laugh as a kid watching them with my pals.

    I knew this but if it's a hit maybe they'll consider making a British one again.

    He was a better match of wits than Carey.

    REALLY looking forward to this : D

    Anderson was the host in the US version early on before Carey became host. Will it be on 5 USA like before?

    Anderson technically never did any of the US version, he didn't want to move to America. Drew Carey was responsible for bringing the show to America, here he is hosting the first ever US version episode. The normal panel of the US version were in the later UK episodes (Greg Proops, Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles) and the show was filmed in America under a British production company (Hat Trick and Channel 4). Clive Anderson didn't mind flying over to do the occasional episode, but he didn't want to relocate there permanently.

    Who cares whose hosting, the important thing is that whose line is anyway is coming back. A show I never understood why it got cancelled it must of been the cheapest show on television to produce, I can't fathom the logic behind it's cancellation.

    Both versions were cancelled because of low ratings.

    Low ratings against friends for most of it's run then in the final season it didn't even have a timeslot and was moved about the schedule so much nobody new when a new episode was on let alone what time to watch.

    I dunno, I felt it had run its course. It's been a while now so it'll be nice to have it back.
  • Deleted user 4 March 2013 03:51:33
    Yeah, as great improvisers as they were, there's only so many hoedowns you can do over 10+ years before you start to get stale.

    Laura Hall is doing an AMA on reddit right now for those interested.

    She's also given a few details about the new show it starts taping in a few weeks; due to shown in mid july on CW; 12 episode run; wayne, ryan and colin are all returning and also curiously they've been interviewing some new people for the 4th chair.

    Link to the profile for the lazy to see the answers she gave here
