Hello and welcome to Whose Line Is It Anyway? which is an improvisation program, as you'll discover if you don't improvise yourself too quickly with the "off" knob on your television set.

What I'll be doing here is I'll be giving the contestants a variety of things to do to get them to think on the spot, to perform off the cuff, or otherwise go completely round the bend. And to make sure it's nice and spontaneous, or at least scruffy, I'll be involving the studio audience here who'll be yelling out suggestions and ideas for the contestants to play. The audience themselves have been specially selected for their good looks, their intelligence, and their susceptibility to flattery.

Now, the contestants:

  • Now the first contestant comes from America. America has given us some great performers over the years, I'm thinking of Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Champion the Wonder Horse, but tonight, tonight it's given us Archie Hahn. You may have seen Archie in Spinal Tap, or even Mork & Mindy, The Sunshine Boys, less likely you'd have seen him in Fatal Attraction because he wasn't in it
  • Next we have Josie Lawrence, she'll need no introduction to anybody who's met her before, which will include people who have seen her in the Comedy Store Players, the famous troupe of improvisers, who've also lent us our next contestant who is:
  • Paul Merton, he's sometimes an improviser, sometimes a standup comedian, but always a dead misery
  • Finally, we have John Sessions. What can I say about John? Actor, academic, and regular all-round nice guy, well, those are just a few of his ambitions

But as you know those are the contestants, let's get on with the game.
