Tour Brings Improv Madness to UGA Performing Arts Center

Current cast members of the Emmy-nominated TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” present their new improv tour »Who lives anyway? » at the Hodgson Concert Hall on September 20 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.

“Who lives anyway?” is 90 minutes of hilarious improvised comedy and song, all based on audience suggestions. Cast Members Greg Proops, Jeff B. Davis, Ryan Stiles and Joel Murray will leave the public breathless with the very witty scenes they invent before their eyes. Audience participation is key to the show, so bring suggestions and be prepared for the chance to be invited to join the cast on stage.

This particular style of improv comedy is packed with countless gags, one-liners, hilarious plays, and even songs so good it’s hard to believe they were made up on the spot. The teamwork and confidence it takes to put on a show without a script is apparent, but when the best of the best do it, they do it effortlessly. Watch them build entire scenes, characters, and storylines before the audience’s eyes as they take participants on a breathless ride through endless laughter.

Stiles’ TV credits include roles on ‘The Drew Carey Show’ and ‘Two and a Half Men’, while Proops lent his voice talents to animated characters in ‘Star Wars: Episode 1’, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas and “Brother Bear.” However, the two got their start as comedians and are excited to return to their funny, bone-tickling roots.

Davis is also a very experienced improv comedian and starred in the cult cartoon series “Harmonquest”. He also starred in “Drew Carey’s Green Screen Show” and “Improv-a-Ganza,” while gaining fame for his impressions of Christopher Walken, Keanu Reeves, and Jeff Goldblum.

Murray is the youngest of nine Murray brothers, including Bill Murray, but has become a star in his own right. Although he has over 250 sitcom appearances, he is best known for his recurring roles as Freddy Rumsen on “Mad Men” and Eddie Jackson on “Shameless.” He also appeared in Bobcat Goldthwait’s “One Crazy Summer”, “The Artist”, “Scrooged” and “God Bless America”.

“Who lives anyway?” features some of the improv games made famous by the long-running TV show as well as exciting new games, with musical direction from Bob Derkach. All ages are welcome.

This performance is presented by Martin Media.
