Improv Comedy Games
13 May 2014 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

"Riot" is a sketch-based, improv comedy show, much like "Who's Line is it Anyway?" There is no scoring and no winner.

The host sets up each game and advises which players are to participate in it. Two of the six players are celebrities. Steve Carrell was one of the celebrities on the first episode. Games include acting out situations in total darkness, a charade-type game using shadows, and skits performed in a tilted room.

After watching the first episode, I think the quality of each episode will depend upon which celebrity players are used and the particular games played.

Good improv is not easy. This show may find it difficult to match the genius displayed on "Who's Line is it Anyway?"
