WL SURVIVOR

26 August, 2000.
Sixteen Whose Line performers have been marooned on a remote island.
To survive, they must outwit, outplay and outperform each other in various improvisational immunity challenges.
Every two days they attend a meeting of the Whoser council, where one contestant will be voted off the island.
But in the end, there can be only one - WHOSE LINE SURVIVOR.

The Island

Little is known about the remote (well, not THAT remote...) island on which the contestants have been placed.

Some refer to it as "Gaudeamus Igitur" - island of the has-been. Others know it as "Punker Brewsti" - Isle of the Monkey.

Still others believe it is actually just Tasmania.

What we do know is that it now features various forms of luxurious accomodation and natural amenities, constructed unbeknownst to us by the contestants during their time on the island (and after they were meant to have been kicked off).

If you are interested in staying on the island (and thus helping us recoup the money we spent making this series), please phone this number now:
9
(cost of a local call. Please get your parents' permission before calling. Everybody.)

During your stay on the island, be sure to check out some of the local facilities, including nearby shopping and pub facilities just on the other side of the ridge from where the contestants were camped out. We were quite surprised they didn't manage to find them actually... You might also like to relax in the Mud Volcano, although you are warned to watch out for the naked Richard. As an extra surprise we're not telling you which one - Hatch, Vranch, Kaplan or Simmons.

Information & Disclaimer

Whose Line Survivor was a game played in late 2000. Each episode was created by Mark Longmuir and then posted onto the messageboard. Over the next week or so, fans were able to vote on which contestant they wanted to evict. The contestant with the most votes was evicted at the beginning of the next episode (I think the on-show voting was usually roughly proportional to votes cast). Immunities were decided by a game of random chance, i.e. flipping a coin mostly.

DISCLAIMER:
Well, just in case.
This story is a parody of, and may at times even vaguely resemble, Survivor. It uses characters (loosely) based on the performers of "Whose Line is it Anyway?", but they are not intended to reflect the real people - they are instead characteristed by the introductory jokes, quirks, and scenes performed by the players during the course of the show. The events in the story bear no resemblance to anything living, dead or otherwise, probably.
