It's improv at Miller with Mochrie and Sherwood

Oct. 6, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, two stars of the Emmy-nominated "Whose Line Is It Anyway?," have teamed up to present an evening of extraordinary improvisational comedy Friday, Oct. 13, at 8 p.m. in Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University.

Using their quick wit, Mochrie and Sherwood will take contributions from the audience to create hilarious and original scenes. The show will become truly interactive as audience members are called to the stage to participate in the fun.

Because of the popularity of "Whose Line," Mochrie and Sherwood can still be seen performing more than 15 times a week on Comedy Central and ABC Family.

Mochrie's first appearance on "Whose Line is it Anyway?," the British version, was in 1991. His role on the American "Whose Line" got off to a rocky start when ABC wanted to drop Mochrie, because they thought the comedian looked too old and not hip enough. Mochrie remained and became a popular mainstay on the American "Whose Line" stage.

Sherwood, who is originally from Santa Fe, was a regular cast member on ABC's "Whose Line" and was also a regular for three seasons on the British version. His past credits also include "The Drew Carey Show."

Tickets for "An Evening with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood" range from $32 to $52 and are available by calling (269) 387-2300 or (800) 228-9858, online at www.millerauditorium.com or by visiting the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office or the Epic Center Box Office in downtown Kalamazoo. Groups of 20 or more should call (269) 387-2312 for special discounts.

Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood at Miller Auditorium is sponsored by Coca-Cola.
