Drew Carey’s Improv-a-ganza
Thursday, 10.30pm, Comedy Lord knows what parlour-game players used for sources before television. If you aren’t immersed in middle Americana, much of this will be incomprehensible. The show depends on the cast impersonating actors and popular music. But it’s an amusing half-hour if you enjoy the idea of a comic impersonating Jack Nicholson treading on a train set and another parodying Oscar Wilde, before being ordered by the audience to become Woody Allen playing Oscar. It’s not rocket science but it is good fun from a hard-working cast of comics, excluding Drew Carey. The only thing he adds to the show is his name.
