What Did TJ Bryan Watch On YouTube Yesterday? Whose Line Is It Anyway Highlights!
One of favorite apps on the Fire Stick is Pluto TV, which is a channel surfer’s dream. Pluto TV has so many weird, niche channels, and the British Comedy channel always sucks me in, especially when Whose Line Is It Anyway? is on.
Americans know the Drew Carey-hosted version of the show featuring the talents of improvisors Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Gregg Proops, and Brad Sherwood, but it actually originated in England with many of the same talented folks. WLIA debuted in 1988 with host Clive Anderson. Many of the comics were originally recruited from London’s The Comedy Store, and by season five U.S. based comics became regulars including Stiles and Mochrie.
In 1999 the show was canceled by Channel 4 in the U.K., and Stiles pitched the idea to friend Drew Carey, who then got the show on ABC where it ran until 2004. The show is till in production with host Aisha Tyler and Stiles and Mochrie still cracking people up with their insane improv skills.
