Live and Dangerous Comedy


Following the enormous success of ABC’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, two stars of the Emmy-nominated series, have teamed up to present an evening of gut-busting improvisational comedy, Two Man Group, coming December 5-7.

Using their quick wit, Mochrie and Sherwood take contributions from the audience to create hilarious and original scenes. Throughout the evening, the show becomes truly interactive as audience members are called to the stage to participate in the fun. The comedy duo's show, now in its seventh year, continues to remain among the most popular live comedy shows touring the country.

Mochrie's role on the American “Whose Line” got off to a rocky start when ABC wanted to drop him because they thought he looked too old and not hip enough. Thankfully those involved in the show held their ground, and ABC was smart enough to see that talent and creativity were more important than 'hip'. The fans agreed, making Mochrie a popular mainstay on the American “Whose Line” stage. Brad Sherwood is a regular cast member on ABC's “Whose Line” and was a regular on the British version on Comedy Central as well.

Their DVD, “Two Man Group: Live and Dangerous Comedy,” is in stores now but you can catch the show live right here in Northern Colorado. And what a show it promises to be!
