The “Whose” Who
For those unfamiliar with this unique concept, the TV series, Whose Line is it Anyway? remained
a massive hit in the UK for over a decade and now enjoys the same success in the USA after
Channel 4 sold the show to NBC. According to The Times, this show with its new cast is “Pure
talent, better than the TV show!” The five renowned comedic alchemists promise to hit comedy
gold by taking scenarios, genres, phrases and props suggested by the audience and turning
them into a hilarious array of sketches, songs, comic dramas and more.

sitcom Blackadder, as well as playing a regular role in cult student comedy, The Young Ones, make him the most recognisable performer on this tour. Trained at the Guildhall School of Music andDrama, Frost is well known on the comedy circuit for his work with The Comedy Store Players and his appearances on Whose Line Is It Anyway.
Niall Ashdown improvises comedy onstage with the Comedy Store Players, Paul Merton’s Impro Chums, Impropera and with Ross Noble.

Oh, and poetry and prose for BBC Radio 3’s The Verb and Nightwaves. And songs, too, often when uncalled for.
Andy Smart has been a featured member of The Comedy Store Players since 1995, arriving
there from a round-about passage via street entertainment and one too many visits to the
Pamplona Bull Running Festival, which he does like clockwork every year.
Ian Coppinger, described by the Irish Times as, “A sophisticated Billy Connolly,” is one of
Ireland’s busiest comedians and comic writers, having penned scripts for The Late Late Show
and The Stand Up Show, but whose primary concern remains The Comedy Improv, which he
founded in 1992 and performs every Monday at the International Bar in Dublin.
