‘Whose Live Anyway?’ Provides Much-Needed Relief

Laughter Is the Best Medicine in a Night of Improv

Laughter really is the best medicine. Following an election night that many would describe as nothing less than traumatizing, Whose Live Anyway? — the comedy foursome of Ryan Stiles, Greg Proops, Jeff B. Davis, and Joel Murray, plus musical wizard Bob Derkach — provided some direly needed healing through a hilarious prescription of improv games such as New Choice and Pocket Lines.

The troupe sweetly lampooned S.B. subjects, as in their giddily guffaw-inducing interpretation of solstice in a skit about the moon. The cast was as spot-on and comfortably at-ease in their off-the-cuff shenanigans as on the television show, and their good-spirited gags were a welcome breather from some anxiety-inducing circumstances. Thank you, Whose Live, for helping us smile.
