"Hello and welcome to this special compilation edition of Whose Line is it Anyway?. This is made up of bits and pieces which were too long, too short or too late to fit in our regular programme, but which we were too keen, too brave or too mean to throw away. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Take it away... Clive."


"In America"

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? in America, and for British viewers I should explain that America is that country under Canada where blue jeans and Bruce Springsteen come from. But improvising on the show tonight we have first of all from England the lovely Josie Lawrence. Next from California the, well, even lovelier Ryan Stiles. And then from Interplay in New York, the loveliest Christopher Smith. And finally, also from Interplay, the superlative Jim Meskimen. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? In America, where of course we'll be improvising on the right-hand side of the road, when we aren't getting on the wrong side of the audience. And tonight the show features Channel 4's very own pet American megastar, Mike McShane. Then even more at home here in New York, New York... New Yorker Mark Cohen. Next we have the coolest dude on the West Coast of America since the Beach Boys last took a cold shower, Greg Proops.

And improvising bravely tonight, if not completely freely, we have first of all from Interplay, here in New York, the exotically named Christopher Smith. And then from England, a member of the county of Surrey's tiny Danish community, the amazing, and indeed tiny, Sandi Toksvig. And next, another New York Interplayer, arguably the best impressionist since Claude Monet, Jim Meskimen. And last, but far from least, the greatest of the San Francisco Giants, our very own Mike McShane. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


3.14 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? in America, for the funniest thing in transatlantic comedy since TWA last published their financial results.

And joining him, from Los Angeles, the crazy world and crazy red buttons of Archie Hahn. Also from Los Angeles - L.A. must be empty tonight! - we welcome Ryan Stiles.

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? in America, and indeed we've got a pretty well all-American show tonight. Even I've been going around telling people to have a nice day, when I haven't been mugging joggers in Central Park. But the real Americans we've got here, first of all we've got Greg Proops, the thinking man's Elvis Costello. Next, George McGrath, the thinking man's Greg Proops. Then Ryan Stiles, the unthinking woman's blind date. And finally, then man whose continued existence defies all thought, Mike McShane. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


3.16 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? The New York Tapes, for the greatest thing in Anglo-American co-operating since the DeLorean sports car.

Then from San Francisco, once hailed as the Ford Edsel of American comedy, Greg Proops. Then the ever-popular compact economy joke-mobile, Sandi Toksvig. And finally the Greyhound bus of song, dance, comedy and drama, Mike McShane. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


3.17 (Compilation) - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway? in America, now even in New York we managed to record some games which we weren't able to cram into the regular shows, because they were either too British, too American, or too difficult for the producer to understand at the first time of watching. So here's a selection of some of the bits which didn't quite get away."
