It's one thing to get up in front of an audience and try to make them laugh; it's quite another to do it without a script. Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood (pictured) starred in the super-popular, forever-syndicated Whose Line Is It Anyway? with fellow improvisers Ryan Stiles (the tall guy) and Wayne Brady (the music guy). Mochrie and Sherwood's stage show involves a number of sketches that require prompts from the audience (they've also been known to bring audience members on stage, so consider yourself warned!). Tickets are $40-$60.
