"Hello, well we've come all the way from London to New York to make these special editions of Whose Line is it Anyway? in America. Some things don't change, like the set, and my snappy line in dressing. And the fact that we generally manage to record too much material to cram into our regular programmes. So here's a special compilation edition of the bits that were too good, too bad or too unforgettable to throw away. As we say in America, enjoy."
