Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Anyone watch this show? It's really impressive how these guys come up with stuff off the tops of their heads. Is that all learned in acting/improv classes or do they just have to have a high natural ability for it?

which one?
the original british one, or the one with drew carey and what seems like a lack of comedians willing to play?

I used to watch the British version all the time way back when. I loved it so much.

I can't stand the Drew Carey version...it seems way too predictable and I don't buy the "improv" factor anymore (how can it really be improv if you know everyone's nuances so well that you can predict everything they are going to do?).

I like them both. Wayne Brady is genius. What they do, or did, takes talent.

Yep, I'm going with the stance that both were good. Maybe it was rehearsed... doesn't mean it's not funny.
