‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ Stars To Perform At BJC In September
Welcome to “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” — the show where everything’s made up, the points don’t matter, and Penn State is the stage.
Get excited and brush up on your improv skills, because Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, stars of the newly revived improv show, will be bringing laughs to Happy Valley on Sunday, Sept. 27, at the Bryce Jordan Center.
For those who may not know, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” is a TV show built around improvisation: The panel of comedians act out and react to various questions, songs, and skits. Although Mochrie has always been a main improv panelist, Sherwood often made regular guest appearances.
Mochrie and Sherwood have been members of the original “Whose Line” cast since it first aired on ABC Family in 1998. Although the hit show sadly ended in 2007, the show was recently revived, much to the excitement of its enormous fan base, in the summer of 2013. Even more exciting, most of the same cast members — including Mochrie and Sherwood — returned to reprise their spontaneous, comedic roles.
Here’s a clip of Mochrie and Sherwood in action, from the original series:
The two-man show that will take the BJC by storm will be rather similar to the TV show: Mochrie and Sherwood improvise new material for every new live show, often relying on the audience for skit suggestions and participation.
The live show will certainly be an incredible performance, especially for fans who have always wished they were in the “Whose Line” audience.
Although the show isn’t until Sept. 27, tickets are going on sale this Friday, April 24, at 10 a.m. Student tickets are $29.50, while adult tickets will be $49.50. Tickets can be purchased at the BJC, Eisenhower Auditorium, the Penn State Downtown Theatre, or on ticketmaster.com.
