The cynic in me says that Drew Carey must be tired of seeing his heavier self on reruns of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” The improviser in me says that he must miss the addictive high of doing the show. The fan in me can’t wait to see Drew’s new show.
An impressive line-up of talented actors and comedians will join stand-up comic turned actor-producer Drew Carey in DREW CAREY’S IMPROV-A-GANZA, his new original, primetime daily strip show for GSN. Carey and his fellow cast members will create a lively, unpredictable and hilarious half-hour of improvised sketch comedy, complete with audience participation. Carey’s fellow cast members include Heather Anne Campbell, Jeff Davis, Chip Esten, Kathy Kinney, Jonathan Mangum, Sean Masterson, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Ryan Stiles. Wayne Brady also appears.
Elsewhere on the site, it says that there will be 40 episodes of “Improv-A-Ganza.” If they show five episodes a week, that’s eight weeks of comedy before they show a rerun. Of course I hope they’ll make more. There were 220 episodes of “Whose Line.” I also hope that my local provider picks up GSN’s new high-definition feed soon.
