Now Playing Onstage in St. Petersburg - Week of 3/02/2014Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood in Broadway" border="0" height="100" width="100" align="right"> COLIN MOCHRIE & BRAD SHERWOOD
Progress Energy Center for the Arts- Mahaffey Theater
Interactive improv comedy with "big belly laughs" is the payoff for an evening with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, two stars of ABC's Emmy® nominated series Whose Line is It Anyway? Using their quick wit, the duo takes 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. Currently, both Mochrie and Sherwood can be seen in prime time on the new improv sketch comedy show, Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza, on the Game Show Network. They also appear, performing more than 15 times a week, on Comedy Central and ABC Family. Their DVD, Two Man Group: Live and Dangerous Comedy, was released in March 2011. The two share almost 50 years in comedy. Colin Mochrie began his improv career when first introduced by a friend to Ryan Stiles, and the two teamed up. Shortly after doing Expo '86, Colin moved to Toronto and auditioned for Second City, the famous North American comedy theater, where Stiles worked. Mochrie got the job and worked at Second City for three years. His first appearance on the British version of Whose Line is it Anyway? was in 1991. His role on the American Whose Line show got off to a rocky start when ABC wanted to drop Mochrie; they thought he looked too old and was not hip enough. Thankfully those involved in the show held their ground, and the fans agreed, making Mochrie a popular mainstay on the American Whose Line stage. Lately Mochrie has been as busy as ever. He's spent time touring with the Improv All Stars, and he continues to travel on tour with An Evening with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood regularly. He has also been busy appearing in commercials as the Nabisco Snack Fairy. Mochrie's been heavily involved in independent and small movie projects such as The Movie Co-op, a Canadian venture to help produce movies funded by and run by Canadian artists themselves. Brad Sherwood is a regular cast member on ABC's Whose Line Is It Anyway? and was a regular on the British version on Comedy Central as well. His credits include The Drew Carey Show, The Green Screen Show, more than 100 appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, numerous appearances on VH-1's I Love The '80s & '90s and guest hosting Talk Soup.
