    30 Moments From "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" That Need Zero Context To Be Hilarious

    The show where everything's made up and the context doesn't matter!

    It's no secret that I — the human woman writing this post — am a big fan of the original American run of Whose Line Is It Anyway? and absolutely everything they've done. It's my ultimate comfort show, and I rewatch clips from it anytime I need a serious giggle.

    ABC

    Which, in recent years, is often.

    Anyway, one of my favorite things about the show is that you can see just a still from one of the games with a prompt, and laugh your darn butt off from the sheer ridiculousness of it!

    ABC

    So, with that in mind, here are some of the silliest, weirdest, most ridiculous prompts ever given to the actors on the show, presented to you with absolutely ZERO CONTEXT. Please, enjoy:

    For the record, mine is the three-headed Broadway star skit when Drew Carey 110% forgot the whole point was to only sing one word at a time. IDK why, but it kills me every time. He's just so into it. Mess.
