Funny man to host evening of improvisational comedy and audience participation
(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) - The improvisational talents of Brad Sherwood will be showcased on Friday, January 31, 8 p.m., in Johnston Hall, as he brings his version of the hit television show Whose Line Is It Anyway? to Moravian College. Sherwood will be juggling lots of improvisational roles in his one-man show that will include audience participation.
Sherwood, a regular cast member of the Whose line is it Anyway? show, may best be remembered from the comedy series The Newz, or as the love-struck nanny on LA Law. He has appeared on numerous variety programs, such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Big Moment, The Gary Shandling's Show, Guess TV and The Dave Thomas Show. Most recently he hosted a season of The Dating Game. His motion picture credits include That Darn Cat, Night Caller, and Attack of the 5'2" Woman.
Following an enormously successful third season on television, Whose Line Is It Anyway? is a show where everything's made up on the spot and the points don't matter - returns for an evening of extraordinary improvisational comedy. In much the same way that Saturday Night Live has spawned a new generation of comedians, so has Whose Line Is It Anyway?. Television's format features host Drew Carey, who sets the scene, while suggestions from the audience prompt four talented actors to wreak hilarious havoc, as they instantly invent unrehearsed skits, games or songs, relying only on quick wit and improvisational skills.
American television's most unique comedy series, Whose Line Is It Anyway? began as a radio program in London in 1988. After the first season on television the show won the British Academy Award, and during the next five years won the CableACE award four times.
General admission to the show is $12. Advance tickets can be purchased at the college bookstore in the Haupert Union Building, W. Locust and Monocacy Streets in Bethlehem or by calling 610-861-1499. Visit Moravian College on the Web at: www.moravian.edu.
