While offering Ryan his "helping hands," Colin takes a drink of champagne.

Helping Hands or Hands Through is a game in which three performers enact a given scene. One performer can move freely, while another cannot use his arms, and places them behind his back, and the third provides the arms for the second, placing his own arms through the second's armpits. Other than some early UK playings, the performers are usually provided with a table full of props, some of which are messy. They are also commonly provided with aprons or other protective costumes. In later US playings, the game would frequently be with two performers and a celebrity guest.






  • In the American version, Colin and Ryan always appeared in this game, with Colin always being Ryan's arms.
