9.01 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which is to comedy, what alcopops is to Ribena. Featuring tonight, the unchanging face of the ever-lovely Greg Proops. Plus the always changing face, and voice, of Britain's premier impressionist, Rory Bremner. And then someone who can change himself from animal to human, and then straight back to animal again, Colin Mochrie. And then the world's top improviser, and indeed the world's worst circus midget, Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.02 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which regularly sees more excitement than Bill Clinton's trousers, backstage at a Spice Girls' concert. And we're going to have a pretty American line-up tonight, starring the sexiest thing in spectacles since Ronnie Corbett, our own Scary Spice, Greg Proops. And our sexiest new import, from the Groundlings in Los Angeles, Karen Maruyama. And the sexiest Scots-Canadian comedian living in America on the program tonight, our own Ginger Spice, Colin Mochrie. And finally a great actor, tremendous comedian, and enormous waste of spice, Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.03 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which starts where the program before it leaves off. And featuring tonight, someone who can only be described as an old favourite, making a very welcome return to the show, the high and mighty Mike McShane. And somebody (ooh, no, let's carry it on) somebody who is rapidly becoming a new favourite on the show, a man with matinee idol good looks and matinee jackets to match, Brad Sherwood. And then our anti-post-favourite star of stage, screen and zoo cage, the highly unlikely Colin Mochrie. And then the best looking, most talented, most excit... oh no, he's pulled out, as usual it's Ryan Stiles! Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.04 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which makes Neighbours look well-prepared, and Teletubbies look like the jewel in the crown. Featuring tonight, the return of the distinguished Royal Shakespearian actress, Comedy Store Player and the man in the street's favourite improviser, Josie Lawrence. And the surprise return of actor, novelist, playwright, intellectual, and most famous visitor to Belgium since Adolf Hitler, Stephen Fry. Then the not particularly surprised return of the most famous Canadian visitor to this country since Leonard Cohen's last tour, Colin Mochrie. And finally the constant surprising combination of skills, talents, and spare parts that make up Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants! Now, we're going to start with a game... well, if I can get on tonight, we've got a very lively audience tonight, a rather dull set of improvisers obviously..."


9.05 - Details

"Hello... welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation programme which offers more excitement than a rainy day at the test match, or a whole series of games of baseball. Featuring tonight, as described by Dr Spooner, the 'shining wit' of Greg Proops. Then, as described by the Good Sex Guide, the 'extremely quick' Stephen Frost. As described by An Alien's Guide to the Universe, 'one of us', Colin Mochrie. And finally, as described by someone who's never seen him, the 'fantastically talented' Ryan Stiles."


9.06 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which relies entirely upon the skill and ability of the performers, which does mean we could be in some trouble tonight. But we feature from London, England, the man whose many and varied talents, must one day be discovered, Stephen Frost. Then from various bits of North America and North Britain, a man of awesome number of passports, Colin Mochrie. Plus an all-American comedian, actor, TV presenter and singer, the lovely Brad Sherwood. And finally, for his 900th consecutive appearance on this show, the comedian, actor, and the producer's brother, Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show where our motto is 'All for fun and fun for all', and our four musketeers of comedy tonight; an old friend of the show, the sharp suit and even sharper tongue of your friend and his, Greg Proops. And then a new friend of the show, transported from a bar stool in Cheers to a hard chair in cheerless England, George Wendt. Plus our regular dose of Canadian sunshine, the sophisticated barnyard impressions of Colin Mochrie. And finally the actor, comedian, the man, the telegraph pole that is Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.08 - Details

"Hello... welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which makes all other improvisation shows just look unrehearsed. Featuring tonight the most popular and tasteful American to come to Britain since Ronald McDonald, Greg Proops. Then, new to us, but an absolutely top-line comedienne, also from the States, Debi Durst. Then our resident Scots-Canadian comedian who's caught on here quicker than the grey squirrel, Colin Mochrie. And finally the man who stands head and shoulders above his chest, Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.09 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which, if you haven't seen it before, is the very best programme on the television. Or, if you have seen it before, you know it's one where I start off with a very big lie. And featuring tonight we have a man of a thousand voices, all of them the same, Stephen Frost. Then a man of a thousand faces, very few of them human, Colin Mochrie. Then a man of a thousand dollars, all of them travel expenses, Brad Sherwood. And finally, a man of a thousand appearances on this programme, Ryan Stiles. Everyone, the contestants."

9.11 (Compilation) - Details

"Hello and welcome to another compilation edition of Whose Line is it Anyway?, a compendium of magic moments which you haven't seen before, and bits that were going to be thrown away, but they've been brought together to make one fantastic whole. Let's see it now, hope you enjoy it."


9.12 (Compilation) - Details

"Hello and welcome to one of our compilation editions, a compendium of moments which were destined for the cutting room floor, until the producers realised that you could stitch them together and make an even more fantastic whole. So here's a Frankenstein's monster edition of Whose Line is it Anyway?."


9.13 - Details

"Hello and welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation programme. We've got the A team out tonight, the best we could put together. No I'm sorry, I misread that. We've got a team tonight, the best we could put together. Featuring from the west coast of America, the sparkling wit and stunning looks of specs on legs, Greg Proops. Then from the south side of London, the secret lovechild of Sean Connery and Barbara Windsor, Stephen Frost. Then from the wilder parts of the Canadian outback, the man the mounties didn't want to get, Colin Mochrie. And finally, from somewhere near the ceiling, the monumentally talented Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.14 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation programme, and a rather American edition tonight. Tonight the line-up is as American as blueberry pie, World Series Baseball or a line of tasteless hamburger joints anywhere in the world. And it features tonight, for us the relatively familiar Greg Proops; and introducing for us the relatively new Karen Maruyama; and starring the relatively old Colin Mochrie; and including the relatively talented Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants!"


9.15 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation show which, if you haven't seen it before, is the very best programme on the television. Or, if you have seen it before, you know it's one where I start off with a very big lie. And featuring tonight we have a man of a thousand voices, all of them the same, Stephen Frost. Then a man of a thousand faces, very few of them human, Colin Mochrie. Then a man of a thousand dollars, all of them travel expenses, Brad Sherwood. And finally, a man of a thousand appearances on this programme, Ryan Stiles. Everyone, the contestants."


9.16 - Details

"Hello, welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation programme which takes the literary, the theatrical, and the cinematic heritage of the English speaking world, and turns it into half an hour of dodgy jokes. Featuring tonight from the west coast of America, though frequently going beyond the pale, the spectacular Greg Proops. Then from the cast of Cheers, but tonight definitely going beyond the Norm, the charming George Wendt. Then originally from Canada, but now as British as Greg Regetsky's passport, the celebrated Colin Mochrie. And finally, from somewhere half way up the Rocky Mountains, the sensational Ryan Stiles."


9.17 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the programme which puts the performers on the spot, puts the audience in command, and keeps me in a job. Well, just about. And it features tonight the return of America's premiere improviser, the indescribable Greg Proops. Plus the surprise return of Britain's premiere impressionist, the inimitable Rory Bremner. And the welcome return to civilisation of Canada's premiere animal impersonator, the incredible Colin Mochrie. And finally the welcome re-re-re-re-return of the world's premiere league competitor on this show, the immeasurable Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants."


9.18 - Details

"Hello, welcome to, welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation programme where the performers make up more outrageous things in half an hour than a whole bunch of MPs giving evidence to the Nolan Committee. Featuring tonight, the elaborately becreft charms of west-coast gruber Greg Proops. Then the raven-haired charm, skills and excitement of actress and comedienne Josie Lawrence. Plus the increasingly flesh-coloured coloured hair style of a man who takes some of the pressure off me, Colin Mochrie. And finally the hair-raising head and body of the ever-present Ryan Stiles. Ladies and gentlemen, the contestants."


9.19 - Details

"Welcome to Whose Line is it Anyway?, the improvisation programme where there's no learning, no script, no rehearsal, just the raw talent of the performers. And looking at our team, they don't come much rawer than the one we've got tonight. First, we have the bulldog spirit of our own London particular Stephen Frost. Then our regular Scots-Canadian half-man, half-huskie, half-west highland terrier, Colin Mochrie. Then our irregular all-American half-pitbull half-Pluto Brad Sherwood. Then our semi-house-trained TV star half-man half-giraffe, Ryan Stiles."
