Plot Synopsis

Originally hosted by Drew Carey, this series was rebooted by The CW in 2013 with a new host, comedian Aisha Tyler. WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? featured cast members Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie. Prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience and the host, these performers must use the little information they have and their wild imaginations to depict different characters and an array of scenes, as well as perform songs. After each round of improvisation, the host doles out points and then declares a winner at the end of every episode. For complete information about the reboot, see this page:
