Whose Line Is It Anyway? star Brad Sherwood is bringing the “fast and furious wacky improv” of the hit TV show to an area theater.
Sherwood will perform a solo improv show on Saturday night at the Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 North Charles St.
Sherwood said that during the show he will take suggestions from the audience for a silly song or funny scene and see what happens. He’ll also bring up volunteers from the audience during the show.
“My job is to make them look good and be funny,” Sherwood said. “The setup makes the audience nervous, which adds to the excitement, and when it’s funny afterwards, there’s also a sense of relief.”
“Yes and” is the first rule of improv, which Sherwood said is about “taking every idea, whether good or bad, and turning it into something better.”
“There’s a certain element of magic about improv,” Sherwood said. “Every single show is different.”
Sherwood was on all seven seasons of the American version of Whose Line and was the only LA actor to appear on three seasons of the British incarnation, according to a news release from the MCL Grand. Sherwood has also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Drew Carey Show, and was a frequent panelist on Chelsea Lately, To Tell the Truth, Jury Duty, and Hollywood Squares.
The show is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25. The Box Office and bar at MCL Grand open at 7 p.m. and doors open for seating at 7:30 pm. The show may contain adult or mature content.
Tickets range from $20-$40 and can be purchased at MCLGrand.tix.com or over the phone at 972-219-8446. Lewisville residents may purchase select $15 tickets in-person at MCL Grand during normal business hours with proof of residency.
