Drew Carey to Help Charlie Sheen Ruin Improv For Everyone
Drew Carey, passable standup comic and guy every longform improv (read: UCB, Second City, iO) nerd likes to shit on for popularizing short form improv with Whose Line Is It Anyway?, is not going to be making any new friends with improv purists. His new show on the Game Show Network, entitled Drew Carey’s Improv-a-Ganza (yep) seems inoffensive and ignorable enough as-is. I mean, it’s on the Game Show Network. But then Charlie Sheen decided to join him, and it is all just too much:
In an impromptu appearance, Sheen joined Carey and the cast of DREW CAREY’S IMPROV-A-GANZA live onstage when the 40-episode series was taping live improv performances at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in January and February 2011.
In an unpredictable sketch that separates the men from the trolls, Sheen took the stage on January 18 along with cast members including Carey, Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Greg Proops.
So set your DVRs for April 12th, which is the date in which Drew Carey and Charlie Sheen will join forces to get improv nerds reeeeeeally worked up while also making people unfamiliar with improv really dislike improv. A real double-whammy.
ALSO: 40 episodes?! Who says you can’t get paid to do improv?
