TV show turned stage show ‘Whose Live Anyway’ comes to Cache Creek
BROOKS, Calif. – “Whose Live Anyway,” a live improvisational stage show inspired by the British and American hit television program “Whose Line is it Anyway,” first appeared in 1999 when it sold out two shows in under three hours to very enthusiastic crowds in Vancouver. Following its initial success, “Whose Line” Executive Producer and star Ryan Stiles expanded the number of appearances of the show to include several major cities in the Western USA and Canada where it has remained a consistent sell out. Fans of the TV series and Ryan Stiles can catch the show on Nov. 7 at Cache Creek Casino Resort at 8 p.m.
“Whose Live Anyway” consists of 90 minutes of hilarious improvised comedy and song all based on audience suggestions. Ryan Stiles, Greg Proops, Chip Esten and Jeff B. Davis leave their audiences gasping with witty scenes they invent “on the spot.” Like other improvisational stage shows such as the popular and celebrated Second City, everyone is amazed at how quickly they craft these comedic vignettes and are similarly astounded at the incredible improvised song lyrics Chip Esten and Jeff Davis produce and perform.
Audience participation is the key to the show. Guests are not only asked for suggestions, but are brought up to join in the fun with the cast onstage. “Whose Live Anyway” performs some of the games made famous on the Emmy Nominated TV show with the addition of a few new ones. It’s a night of comedy for fans of the program or new fans alike.
