Millions of fans enjoyed Colin Mochrie in the triumphant return of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” last summer, which brought huge ratings to The CW channel. The show has been renewed for a second season, which will also feature Brad Sherwood who was a regular co-star on ABC’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” along with Mochrie.
In this uproarious live show, Mochrie and Sherwood will take contributions from the audience to create hilarious and original scenes. Throughout the evening, the show becomes truly interactive as audience members are called to the stage to participate in the fun.
Colin Mochrie began his improv career when he was first introduced to Ryan Stiles by a friend and the two teamed up. Shortly after doing Expo '86, Colin moved to Toronto. There, he auditioned for The Second City, a famous North American comedy theater, where Stiles was working at the time. Mochrie worked at Second City for three years.
Mochrie's first appearance on “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” the British version, was in 1991. His role on the American “Whose Line” got off to a rocky start when ABC wanted to drop Mochrie because they thought the comedian looked too old and not hip enough. Thankfully those involved in the show held their ground, and ABC was smart enough to see that talent and creativity were more important than 'hip' and the fans agreed, making Mochrie a popular mainstay on the American “Whose Line” stage.
Brad Sherwood was a regular cast member on ABC's “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” as well on the British version on Comedy Central as well and will be seen on the second upcoming season of the new “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” on The CW. His credits include “The Drew Carey Show,” “The Green Screen Show,” over 100 appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” numerous appearances on VH-1’s “I Love The 80’s’ & 90’s,” “The Price is Right” and guest hosting “Talk Soup.”
Their DVD, “Two Man Group: Live and Dangerous Comedy,” is available in stores now.
