For the first time ever, Comic Relief will bring together the biggest names in comedy for a special one-off event
Improv show Whose Line is it Anyway? is coming to the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London this December.
The legendary show celebrates its 30th anniversary with three performances taking place on 15-16 December 2018.
Originally created as a radio show by the BBC, Channel 4 commissioned Whose Line is it Anyway? for television in 1988. The show consists of four performers who have to improvise characters and scenes on the spot in the style of games chosen by the audience or from predetermined prompts from the host, who then gives the performers a score for their efforts.
Originally airing in the UK until 1998, Whose Line is it Anyway? was hosted by Clive Anderson and has featured well-known comedians such as Paul Merton, Sandi Toksvig, Grep Proops, Stephen Fry and many more.
The success of the show meant an American version was launched in 1998 and it still runs on television today. Many of the show’s performers have performed on both sides of the Atlantic.
This live version of Whose Line is it Anyway? will star the hilarious Colin Mochrie, Josie Lawrence, Charles Esten, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Jeff Davis, with musicians Laura Hall and Linda Taylor. Joining them will be the show’s original host Clive Anderson.
The cast will be playing classic games such as Hoedown, Props, Greatest Hits, Song styles and Film and Theatre Styles.
As it’s an improvised performance, fans can expect a unique and different show every night.
Here are the dates:
15 December 2018 – Royal Albert Hall, London (21:30 show)
16 December 2018 – Royal Albert Hall, London (14:00 show)
16 December 2018 – Royal Albert Hall, London (18:00 show)
