About Ryan Stiles
Ryan Stiles has starred in all three incarnations of "Whose Line"-the British version (1989-98); the American version hosted by Drew Carey (1998-2006); and the current version hosted by Aisha Tyler. He also executive produced both American versions. In addition, Stiles also portrayed Lewis, the luckless janitor, on the hit sit-com "The Drew Carey Show" and recurred for several seasons as Dr. Herb Melnick on the popular series "Two and a Half Men." His film work includes Hot Shots, Hot Shots, Part Deux, and the Academy Award-nominated short film Rainbow War. He recently produced a feature-length documentary called Out of Nothing, about four men competing to break the motorcycle land-speed record on the salt flats of Bonneville.
Best known for his unpredictable appearances on both the US and UK versions of "Whose Line is it Anyway?," Proops has a hit Podcast called "The Smartest Man in the World" (Proopcast.com) which he records live in Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Austin, London, Paris, the Caribbean, and Cleveland. His new book, The Smartest Book in the World, is based on the podcast. Proops has done voice work for Hell and Back, Star Wars the Phantom Menace, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and he really was Bob the Builder.
Born and bred in Southern California, Jeff B. Davis has a long list of TV credits, including Steven Martin's NBC comedy "The Downer Channel," WB's "On the Spot," NBC's "Happy Family," "The Sarah Silverman Show," Drew Carey's "Green Screen Show," and "Improvaganza" to name a few. When not performing with "Whose Live Anyway?," Davis is in Hollywood trying to break George Clooney's record of "most failed television pilots." He is currently a recurring guest on CW's reboot of "Whose Line is it, Anyway?," and can be heard on the highly acclaimed, deeply weird "Harmontown" podcast with NBC's Community creator Dan Harmon.
Writer/director/actor Joel Murray is a veteran of more than 250 sit-com episodes. He has been a series regular on the comedies "Grand," "Pacific Station," "Love and War," "Dharma and Greg," and "Still Standing."

On the dramatic side, Murray played Freddy Rumsen on AMC's "Mad Men," as well as Eddie Jackson on Showtime's "Shameless." Murray recently starred in Bobcat Goldthwait's dark comedy, God Bless America. He can be heard playing Don Carlton in the Pixar prequel, Monsters University. He was also in 2011's Best Picture, The Artist. He has been in numerous films including One Crazy Summer, Scrooged, Long Gone, Hatchet, Lay the Favorite, Sophie and the Rising Sun, Mr. Pig, Bloodsucking Bastards, Lamb, Seven Minutes, and The Last Word.
