Whose Line Is It Anyway is a long-running comedy television show that used to air on ABC and now airs on The CW network. The show is based on a British reality series of the same name. From August of 1998 to December of 2007, the series aired on the ABC network with Drew Carey as the host. After a brief hiatus, Whose Line Is It was revived on the CW Network, this time hosted by Aisha Tyler.
The show is still going on and its 17th season is set to begin filming this year. Whose Line Is It Anyway is all about fun games of improvisational comedy between four performers. Three of the performers, Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Wayne Brady, are series regulars and feature on the show to this day. The fourth performer is usually a guest. Here is a look at where Whose Line Is It Anyway was filmed.
The original American remake that ran from August of 1998 to December of 2007 was filmed at Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA. Specifically, the entire show was shot inside the Raleigh Studios, at 5300 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood. The revival show is also filmed in Hollywood. The new studio used for the CW version is CBS Studio Center, in LA.
Whose Line Is It Anyway tests the performers' improvisational comedy skills. Each performer has to make a character, scene, and sometimes, even songs on the spot. The theme of the improvisational challenge is either set up by the host or is selected by the episode's live audience.
The host of the show even awards points, however, these points are given at random based on whether the host finds the act funny. These points have no real meaning or value and are given just as a part of the joke. The host may also select one or more "winners" for the episode. Once again, this winner is chosen at random and the win does not depend on points. The 'prize' usually involves performing another improve act with the host.
