Drew Carey’s Im­prov-a-ganza

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

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.
