To the surprise of no one who has ever listened to Critical Hit, our live-play RPG podcast, I was an Improv nerd in high school.  (I actually lettered in it, which shocked the heck out of my teenage daughter when she discovered my awards during our recent move.)  I used to love watching the original ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ back in the days soon after Ha! became Comedy Central, and loved Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops and especially Mike McShane, the only celebrity doppelganger I’ve ever had.  My friends and I used to think that we were quite funny as well (but only *I* was correct) leading to today’s unscripted query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still believes that Wayne Brady may be one of the most talented men alive, asking:  What actor, comedian or public figure is the BEST at improv?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

  1. Whose Line Is It Anyway was one of the best shows on TV at the time, and a heck of a lot better than much of what is on today. Wayne Brady was always fun and brought a lot of great energy, but Colin Mochrie was always my favorite just for his willingness to be the butt end of so many jokes.
