Whose Line Is It Anyway Offshoots

Recommended Posts

This is the place to discuss shows that spun out of Whose Line, with very similar games, etc.  Improvaganza and Trust Us With Your Life are the two I can think of right now.

I really liked Improvaganza for the most part, but do wish it had been edited a bit differently.  There seemed to be equal commercial time to show time.  And some of the games went too long.  But I did love being introduced to some "new" (to me) people like Jonathan Mangum.

I also really liked Trust Us With Your Life. That's where I first saw Sideways Scene and I thought it was better there than it has been in the current Whose Line.  I also really liked the mime a song bit, especially when Ricky Gervais was cracking up and asking if this was a real show.

My area just recently got LAFF, an ABC-owned netlet that shows sitcoms and comedy movies. On Saturdays, there are episodes of Improv-A-Ganza ( that I watch before Hannibal episodes. )

 

I have enjoyed the presence of Chip Esten and Heather Anne Campbell and Kathy Kinney, as well as the usual gang.  I also have enjoyed the different games, like Options, that haven't been played on Whose Line.

 

As much as I love Laura and Linda on WLIIA, I am warming to Bob on IAG. He's fun, too.

There are a ton of episodes of Britain's "Mock the Week" available on YouTube. It's mostly a political satire show, which may be hit-or-miss to Statesiders, but the final act is always "Scenes We'd Like To See", which is an extended run of "Scenes From a Hat" and is always a scream. The mid-show stand-up challenge is also usually great.

 

It's produced by the same folk who created WL.
