Some more examples of “Films and Theatre Styles” game from Whose Line Is It Anyway? in which suggestions are gathered from the audience, the performers start a scene suggested by Clive Anderson (the host) and then throws in the suggestions at various intervals.
Cinderella with Josie Lawrence as Cinderella, while Paul Merton is the Fairy Godmother
Clive: Oscar Wilde
Josie: Oh please, I do so want to go to the ball. Would you like a cup of tea?
Paul: That’s very Oscar Wilde, that is! You can always tell a man by the way he drinks his tea. A man who drinks with the handle facing towards him is necessarily a Liberal. A man who drinks without a cup is obviously mad!
Clive: That was almost as if Oscar was in the room!
Julian Clary is a door-to-door salesman knocking on Paul’s door
Clive: Greek tragedy
Julian: (to Paul) Why? Why haven’t we met before? (gestures to audience) That’s the chorus.
Paul: Because I have only just moved into the area.
Julian: (to Paul) I’ve come to sleep with your mother then kill her. (to audience) In that order.
Paul: I’m afraid I’ve done it already!
Julian: How about your father? Is he around?
Clive: Pirate movie.
Julian: Well if you don’t want my brushes, then…
Paul: Do you fancy a Jolly Roger?

Mike: It’s totally bitchin’, these handle bars are chromed, everything looks great
Greg: Totally, wanna take a ride?
Clive: (buzzes) Now let’s do that in English
Greg: Where’s that famous pluck?
Clive: Is that rhyming slang?
Colin Mochrie is teaching Ryan Stiles to parachute jump
Ryan: (Opens plane door)
Colin: (moves hair with his hands)
Clive: (buzzes) What’s that?
Colin: Hair. Blowing in the wind
Clive: I remember. Shakespeare
Ryan: The sky, the sky beyond the door is blue
Colin: Aye, it is blue (pauses for a few seconds)
Clive: (buzzes)(speaks while laughing) That was the worst Shakespeare I have ever heard!!
Tony Slattery is being put in prison by jailer, Paul Merton
Tony: What a horrible suit!
Paul: That’s good from someone who’s dressed up like Doc Holiday
Clive: This is just lapsing into personal abuse.
Paul: You shut your face!
Clive: Film Noir.
Paul: Listen Norris (Tony looks at audience and mouths “Norris?!”) Yes, Norris, that’s your name. Bert Norris! Listen, you’re never going to get out of prison. I’m going to turn the light off, look.
Tony: (mimes smoking a cigarette) Yes, it’s interesting how the…
Paul: Hello, where’s the cigerette come from? What’s all this? (mimes cigarette) Excuse me while I get on my moped!
Clive: I think it’s been a long time since you’ve been on this show Paul. Doctor Who
Paul: Alright then (Tony moves to left of stage and Paul follows) Oh, look, it’s Doctor Who
Tony: Have you noticed that this cell is bigger inside than on the outside?
Paul: Yeah, but you can say the same thing about my underpants?

Clive: Okay, good shirt for this, but the accent isn’t very convincing. Australian Soap
Greg: (in Australian accent) You’ve got gob over me, mate
Colin: (Still in Scottish accent) Och aye, I did
Greg: Now you got gob all over yourself
Colin: Och, I hate being doon under
Greg: Dad, I can not… (starts laughing)
