WHOSE LIVE ANYWAY? is 90 minutes of improvised comedy and song all based on audience suggestions.

The cast is made up of Ryan Stiles, Greg Proops, Jeff B. Davis, and Joel Murray. Musical direction by Bob Derkach.
Ryan Stiles’ television credits include roles on The Drew Carey Show and Two and a Half Men, while Greg Proops has lent his voice to animated characters in Star Wars: Episode 1, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Brother Bear. However, both got their start as comedians and are excited to return to their roots.
Jeff B. Davis is an experienced improv comedian and starred in the cult classic cartoon series Harmonquest. He also starred in Drew Carey’s Green Screen Show and Improv-a-Ganza.
Joel Murray is the youngest of the nine Murray brothers (including Bill Murray).
