clive anderson whose_line_is_it_anyway.jpg

Classic improvisation show Whose Line Is It Anyway? is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe featuring Marcus Brigstocke and Phill Jupitus alongside original improv legends.

This follows sell-out runs at the London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall as well as a total sell-out Edinburgh 2017 run. Under the rein of Clive Anderson (pictured) himself, audiences this August will see many of the original cast members reunite for this special run.

This year’s stellar line-up includes American legend and star of the US version of the show, Greg Proops; American actor Mike McShane, remembered for his roles in Prince of Thieves and Richie Rich; Stephen Frost, half of the legendary 80s double-act The Oblivion Boy; actor, comedian and musician Richard Vranch, responsible for writing the original ‘Hoedown’ music for the show; Olivier Award nominee, known to wider audiences from Casualty and Coronation Street Tony Slattery and a couple of UK’s best stand-up and improv comedians Phill Jupitus, known for his TV and radio appearances in Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Marcus Brigstocke, star of Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News for You and Just a Minute, among others.

Accompanied on the piano by multi-instrumentalist Kirsty Newton, soon one of the 100 expert judges on BBC1’s All Together Now, the line-up of Whose Line Is It Anyway? Live at the Fringe will change daily - no two shows will be the same!

More special guests to be announced.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? Live at the Fringe joins Underbelly’s Fringe 2019 herd which so far includes Irish comedy sketch actual legends Foil, Arms & Hog, world leading rock star circus performers CIRCA, awarding winning Thinking Drinkers, oceanic acrobats Splash Test Dummies and the masters of late-night Fringe, Spank!
