Drew Carey to star in improv comedy series
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Drew Carey is bringing his improv stylings back to TV.
Carey will star in an improvised sketch comedy series that’s set to debut next spring on the Game Show Network.
Joining Carey will be some of the comedians who appeared with him on the ABC improv series “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”
The cast of the new GSN show has yet to be set, Carey said Thursday, but likely will include, among others, Ryan Stiles, Chip Esten and Kathy Kinney, who was a regular on “The Drew Carey Show.”
The 40-episode show will be taped on weekends at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Carey, who stages improv shows at clubs there and elsewhere around the country, will continue as host of “The Price Is Right.”
Unlike “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, in which the cast worked from producers’ suggestions, the new show will rely on the audience to provide ideas for sketches, Carey said.
“`Line’ was structured and this show is a lot more free-form,” he said. Carey added that he doesn’t plan to “hog the stage,” tipping his hat to colleagues he says trump him at the art of improv.
Carey also is a producer for the new show, which will feature guest stars along with a rotating cast.
