Whose Line Is It Anyway?
About Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Hosted by Clive Anderson, many of the original cast members reunite in this live incarnation of the legendary improvisational TV smash hit. The iconic Whose Line Is It Anyway?, devised by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, was one of the biggest (and, in some people’s opinions, the best) TV shows of the late 80’s and 90s, later repeating its success in America with new versions on ABC and the CW network.

Three years ago, producer Get Comedy staged the wildly successful, sell-out improv show What Does The Title Matter Anyway?, and now proudly presents Whose Line Is It Anyway? Live At The Fringe for the whole run.

The stellar line-up from the world of improv will come together for a full run of unpredictable and hilarious nostalgia. Greg Proops, Josie Lawrence, Colin Mochrie, Stephen Frost, Richard Vranch and Mike McShane will perform on rotation, with other special guests to be announced.

No two shows will ever be the same! No points awarded will ever make any sense! Book now to avoid disappointment!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Whose Line Is It Anyway? are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
