THE CW ORDERS NEW CYCLE OF THE HIT COMEDY “WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?” 
The CW will keep bringing the funny with its hit improvisational comedy series WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?, ordering an additional 24 all-new, half-hour episodes to debut in 2015, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.  A premiere date and time for the new cycle of episodes will be announced at a later date. 
The CW’s WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? features Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, who along with a special guest each episode, must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games.  Prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience and host Aisha Tyler, our four performers must use the little information they have and their wild imaginations to depict different characters and an array of scenes, as well as perform songs.  After each round of improvisation, Aisha doles out points to our four performers and declares a winner at the end of every episode. 
Guest stars who have dropped by to demonstrate their improv comedy skills have included Lauren Cohan (“The Walking Dead”), Misha Collins (“Supernatural”), Michael Weatherly (“NCIS”), NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski, Olympic gold medalist and commentator Tara Lipinski, Kevin McHale (“Glee”), Darren Criss (“Glee”), Olympic gold medalist and WNBA superstar Lisa Leslie and Kat Graham (“The Vampire Diaries”). 
Based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is executive produced by Dan Patterson, Mark Leveson, Jimmy Mulville, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady.  Co-created by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is from Angst Productions and Hat Trick Productions.

When you find someone who is as obsessed with Whose Line as you

Improv women have a huge hurdle to overcome when performing. They are playing with men, who bulldoze over them. Watch how many times a woman is trying to say something in a scene and gets over-talked by a guy. It is tough for a woman to break through with big, loud, impolite, excited ‘man-boys’. The guys are just louder, and all rushing to get their ideas heard. So, a lot of great ‘woman-ideas’ in a scene just get missed and the woman comes across as not adding something. That is why so many successful female comedy performers and stand-ups in history have loud/brash (almost male) personalities.

Brad Sherwood (in reply to a fairly ignorant question: Why are women so bad at Improv?…)

Fairly ignorant? How about misogynist?

Also, as a striving female improviser… This is extremely important to me. It’s a given that I look up to all the male improv legends. But Heather Anne Campbell will always be my heroine, for a lot of reasons. And frankly, I don’t find her personality very loud or brash at all.

She simply is who she is: An amazing improviser.

And an incredibly kind and lovely person. Believe me, I’ve met her with my friends at a café in my hometown and we talked for an hour… #humblebrag
