Apparently there's a commercial for the show, but I can't find it online. My dad texted me late last night to tell me he'd seen it.

Commercials already? Do shows usually air commercials this early?

I guess so. I was wondering if anyone on here had seen it.

Less than a month to go! It's not that early to start airing ads in late-night time slots for shows at least.

The Trust Us With Your Life Facebook page put up some footage of the show or something (I don't actually know, it's blocked here).

This is the page: http://www.facebook.com/trustuswithyourlife

I also hadn't realised that it will air two half-hour episodes back-to-back every airing night (Tuesdays)!

Yeah, Wayne shaved his head a while back. He even put up a video about it on his Twitter:

I was just reading some more about the show, and I found out that not only will Greg Proops be a guest improvisor, others will include Brad Sherwood (of US Whose Line), Josie Lawrence (Of UK Whose Line) and David Armand (of Fast And Loose). Brilliant news that I hadn't heard before!

I thought Wayne was especially good and I really liked the episodes. The commercial break after each game was annoying though.

I'm watching it now. Loving the improv, but it seems a bit choppy. And Fred Willard is a little too stiff...Drew would have been teasing the guys about their terrible Elvis impressions, and teasing Serena for being spoiled LOL

Wayne Brady...holy, that man is talented.

Well, that's what makes him our beloved Drew!


HOLY OH MY GOSH IT STARTS TONIGHT OHEMGEE DIDN"T I MISS IT?!? Gotta catch it!


Hah, whoo...it starts in 18 minutes...still got time!


Just saw the first half of the show. Colin looks so alone without Ryan. But now Wayne and Jonathon are the Duo and Colin is the black guy.

Eh, after watching both episodes, they all look happy together. Where is Ryan anyways?

Well, I still haven't seen the episodes, but I'm hoping that if this show can get a nice amount of viewers, it can maybe get some of the other old Whose Line performers, including Ryan. For now though, the show was filmed in London and Ryan doesn't like flying, so that's probably one reason why he didn't attend, but it's also probably not the only reason.
Anyway, I can't wait to see it!

Trust Us With Your Life doesn't air here in the UK but I watched the two episodes online and I thought it was brilliant - the concept of the show, the set design, Colin, Wayne and Jonathan being there, everything! Very Happy
Wasn't too fussed on the host. I agree with joyefulsong, he seems a bit stiff but I guess that's what he has to do. And having an advert every 5 minutes is kinda annoying.

Yea I agree he was a bit stiff. There were plenty of puns and funny comments he could have made. Drew would have been spot on. But even without that, what I really want to see is a closer relationship with the improvisers. He really just talks to the celebrity guests, then gives orders.

Wow, I loved it! I didn't mind Willard at all either, even if he didn't really add anything to it.

I am somewhat worried about how reliant on celebrity guests it is, especially after seeing the second episode, with the Osbournes. I just thought that they were annoying, especially Kelly.

It really reminds me of Fast And Loose as well.

Yea, I thought they were annoying too. Never rely on celebrities who aren't trained in that sort of thing. But that's what Willard is there for - to drag it out of them, without humiliating them of course. which is what Drew might do.

Are you saying you would rather have the commercials in the middle of each game?

It's the same amount of commercial time as it would be for, say, WL. But there were only more games between commercial breaks for WL because the games were shorter.

But they only played games that are made for people who aren't trained in improv. The dubbing game is often done with audience members, isn't it?
