Then we have from the Comedy Store Players, the overwhelming Josie Lawrence. And then back again, over my dead body, Tony Slattery. And finally, overdue but not too much overweight, Mike McShane. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.02 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show to end all improvisation shows, or rather to start them. And this week contesting we have Archie Hahn, from the wide open spaces of America. Then we have Josie Lawrence from the flat open vowel sounds of the West Midlands, and the Comedy Store Players. Then we have Tony Slattery, who I don't think has been on television before. And finally, back on the spot, John Sessions. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.03 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, featuring this week from the world of American improvisation, Ron West of the Chicago Second City theatre company. Then Griff Rhys Jones, from the world of BBC Comedy, the Times newspaper and countless lager adverts. Then from the world of English stand-up comedy and improvisation, Paul Merton of the Comedy Store Players. And finally, from a world of his own, John Sessions.

From the Comedy Store Players, Sandi Toksvig, who is not very very tall. Tony Slattery, who for some reason is always very very naughty. And finally John Sessions who is very very very very difficult to describe. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.06 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, and providing the extemporised excitement tonight, we have first of all Ron West, from Second City in Chicago. Chicago's the Windy City, and another windy citizen is Jimmy Mulville who.. a Liverpudlian comedian who bases his act very much on Arthur Askey, Jimmy Tarbuck, and these days Ken Dodd. Then from the Comedy Store in London we have Paul Merton, you know the expression - 'if you're tired of Londoners, then you're tired of Paul Merton'. And completing this big city line-up we have John Sessions from Largs. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.07 (Christmas Edition) - Details

"Right, hello, and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? for this very special Christmas edition, and here we are (brings out a small Christmas tree), and unlike most Christmas editions, this is in fact being recorded really quite close to Christmas, in fact rather closer to Christmas than it is being shown. But here we are, we should be just in time to catch Hanukkah, I'm told, which is good, because Hanukkah is of course the Hebrew for Channel Four. So here we are improvising on the night after the night after the night after Boxing Day we have first of all, Greg Proops, who possibly is from the west coast of America. Josie Lawrence of the Comedy Store Players from the west Midlands of England. Then the comedian named after the possibly dullest bit of West London, Paul Merton, also the man behind many of Julian Clary's Stickiest Moments. And then someone who must be one of the best Danish comedians working in England at the moment, Sandi Toksvig. And Tony Slattery, who, lets face it, is not one of the best Danish comedians working in England at the moment. And finally, in this monster six person lineup we have the man who is Father Christmas, Mr Holly, the three wise men and several Christmas puddings rolled into one, Mike McShane. Those are the contestants."


2.08 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, and in a desperate attempt this week to drum up some sales in the United States of America, we present an almost all American show. Featuring, first of all, Ryan Stiles, a Canadian of the Second City theatre company in Los Angeles. Josie Lawrence of the Comedy Store Players, who comes from somewhere near Birmingham, Alabama. Neil Mullarkey, also of the Comedy Store Players, whose cousin once went on a trip to New York. And finally Mike McShane from Taunton. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.09 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, and improvising their way through the games tonight we have Archie Hahn, for my money the best American import since Chicken McNuggets. Then from the legitimate theatre, we have Jonathan Pryce, regarded by many as the Sybil Forndike of his generation. From the illegitimate theatre we have Paul Merton of the Comedy Store Players, a man of a thousand voice. And John Sessions, regarded as a human chameleon because of his many characterisations, the fact that he can change colour at will, and the fact that he eats flies. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.10 - Details

"Hello. Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, featuring this week for the first time, Lee Simpson, another product of the Comedy Store Players' academy of improvisation, extemporised humour and related studies. Jan Ravens, who learned her comedy on the streets of Liverpool and in the colleges of Cambridge. Tony Slattery, who learned everything he knows on Clive Anderson Talks Back. And Mike McShane, who comes from the home of American comedy, America. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.11 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, featuring this week, from the Comedy Store Players, Josie Lawrence, the acceptable face of improvisation. Arthur Smith with the face not quite lived in as squatted in. And we have also from the Comedy Store players, Sandi Toksvig, with the face that's launched a thousand quips. And then we have Mike McShane with a face that's also launched a thousand quips and also two or three chins. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.12 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, this week featuring this programme's almost resident American, actor, and man-mountain Mike McShane. And then sometime Muppet gagmaster, comedian, and man-hillock Chris Langham. Then Comedy Store Player girl wonder and woman-molehill Sandi Toksvig. And finally the Napoleon of improvisation, infant prodigy and human-tussock, John Sessions. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


2.13 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, and ad-liberating themselves tonight we have first of all from San Francisco, stand-up comedian Greg Proops. From the Comedy Store Players, sit-down comedienne Josie Lawrence. From Saturday Night at the Movies and another rather more obscure television programme, low-down comedian Tony Slattery. And from who knows where, the can't-put-him-down comedian and one-man RSC, John Sessions."


2.14 - Details

2.15 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, featuring this week the incredible Josie Lawrence of the Comedy Store Players. The inexplicable Paul Merton, also of the Comedy Store Players. Then the totally inexcusable Tony Slattery, not of the Comedy Store Players. And finally the indescribable Mike McShane who's probably never heard of the Comedy Store players. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"
