Clive Anderson
Whose Line UK
Channel 4: 23 September 1988 – 4 February 1999
Hat Trick Productions

The wild & crazy comedy show where four performers would improvise scenes and such.


On Whose Line, four performers would act out/improvise a series of songs, characters, scenes & skits according to the instructions given by host Clive Anderson, and sometimes the audience. At the end of each game, Clive would award points, though in actuality, the points have nothing to do with the show. At the end of each show, Clive would pick a winner/winners, and the winner(s) would read the closing credits in the style of Clive's choosing.


Whose Line started out as a radio show with Clive also hosting before making the jump to TV.

American VersionEdit

A much more successful American version of Whose Line aired on ABC from 1998-2007. It was then revived on 16 July 2013, on The CW, and still airs to this day. Drew Carey hosted the ABC version and Aisha Tyler hosts the current CW version. Greg Proops, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady, who all appeared on the Anderson version of the show are also regular cast members on the US version.
