Just when we thought the Luhrs Performing Arts Center schedule could not get any better, the hit improv-based comedy show “Whose Line is it Anyways?” is heading to Shippensburg this spring.
The show is dubbed “Whose Live Anyway?” and will feature cast alumni Ryan Stiles and Greg Proops alongside comedians Jeff B. Davis and Joel Murray. “Whose Line is it Anyways” was a popular television game show that ran from 1998 to 2006 on ABC. The show was hosted by Drew Carey, starred the aforementioned Stiles and Proops and also featured Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie. The show was revived for the CW network in 2013 with the cast returning — Carey was replaced by new host Aisha Tyler — and is expected to end its run in early 2023.
The show consisted of several improv comedy games. To name just a few, there was “Props,” which had the cast come up with as many jokes as possible based on one random prop. There was “Newsflash,” which had one member (usually Colin) do a news report in front of a green screen where they had no idea what was actually on it. However, the most popular amongst fans is “Scenes from a Hat,” where the host would draw a written scenario from a hat and the cast would compete to have the best jokes for that scenario.
It is unclear which segments from the series will make their way to the stage, but fans are sure to be satisfied seeing their favorite comedic foursome bring the laughs to Luhrs. “Whose Live Anyway?” will be at Luhrs for one night only on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the event are on sale now for the general public.
