Thank God You're Here

0 comments suggest edit

How good are you at thinking on your feet?

Last night I watched the premier for a new show called Thank God You’re Here. It’s a sketch improv comedy show starring various comedy television and movie stars, who have to bluff their way through a scene. They are given costumes, a set, but no script.

The set of Thank God You're
Here

The title of the show derives from the fact that the first line of each skit is “Thank god you’re here!”

I love improv comedy and I thought Neuman from Seinfeld was great as well as the dad from Malcom in the Middle. You can watch the premier online.

It’s reminiscent of one of my favorite improv shows ever, Drew Carey’s Who’s Line Is It Anyways?, but with better sets and costumes. Though it remains to be seen if they will ever top the funniest Whose Line episode ever with Richard Simmons.

Who’s Line Is It
Anyways?

    You are aware "Who's Line is it Anyway" was a British show before Drew Carey picked it up and remade it for the USA ;-)

    I'd never before seen that episode of Who's Line - and I've got to say, it was 6.5 minutes of utter hilarity!
    Ohw... and who ever would have thought we'd get to see Richard Simmons pretending to be a fellatiating JetSki. Just... Wow!

    I see your gravatar just fine. Could have been a momentary blip.

    Hmmm... the show with the same name and idea has been airing in Russia for a year or two. I wonder if they sold licences here first or ripped it off :) (finally soething has been ripped off from our TV not by our TV :))

    Is it "premier" or "premiere"?

    Thank God Your Here was originally created by a long standing production company in Australia called working Dog Productions. They sold the rights to Russia, Denmark and the US so unfortunately this is another import show... but who cares it's great to see the cultural differences in improv and comedy everywhere!
