Whose Line Is It Anyway?

An un-scripted comedy show in which four guest performers improvise their way through a series of games, many of which rely on audience suggestions.

Games include - voicing over a clip from a film which has had the soundtrack removed, inventing a song about a member of the audience, finding entertaining ways of using various props or acting a scene such as a visit to the dentist first in the style of a horror film, then as an Australian TV soap opera and finally as a James Bond movie.

Performers are awarded points by the host (Clive Anderson) on an entirely arbitrary basis. The prize for the winner is to read out the closing credits in a style determined by the host.
