We present Whose Line Is It Anyway? and here's your chairman, Clive Anderson.

Hello and welcome to Whose Line Is It Anyway? a program of skillful improvisation, spontaneous wit, off-the-cuff wisdom, and an introduction that's gonna take some living up to. And now, as on any good radio panel game, and indeed on any bad one as well, we have four contestants. We have here tonight:

  • John Sessions, a man of action frequently cast in TV, films, and plays, and always cast in his own one-man show
  • Stephen Fry, who was recently described as a Renaissance Man by somebody with a very poor grasp of which century we're living in
  • And Dawn French, one half of French letter, er, French and Saunders, she is, of course, otherwise known as Mrs. Lenny Henry
  • And we also have Lenny Henry, otherwise known as Mrs. Lenny Henry

Now this program is all about improvisation. We have a number of games to play, so why don't we play the first one?
