A New and Updated Version of a Classic
This is the American version of the original British improvisation show, with many recognizable faces from the first series. Drew Carey is the most recent host, and he does a good job, but nobody can do it like Clive Anderson once did. Apparently, Anderson has returned here as an occasional host, but I have yet to see him on the re-runs, something that I am looking forward to.

Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie, both of whom made the original show very entertaining in the latter years, have returned here to once again amaze and entertain with their on-the-spot comedy. As well, Wayne Brady has been added to the cast, and he is a heavy-hitter, especially when it comes to making up songs on the spot. Often pairing with Brad Sherwood or Chip Esten, his musical/comedic talents are second to none. Other past contestants such as Josie Lawrence and Greg Proops can be seen on some nights, which is a welcome gesture to fans of the show's older cousin.

Once again, the comedic talents of all the contestants are simply amazing, as they make up skits on the spot. Many of the games from the original version of the show have been kept, with the addition of some new ones that maintain originality. Much of the show's format remains the same, which is excellent, but unfortunately, the show is kept more mainstream by the American censors, as the original show contained more off-colour humour, and even some profanity, which added to the show in general. Despite this fact, the new WLiiA rises above many of the other comedy shows on national television.

My Rating: 10/10
