Armed with only their wits, Whose Line is it Anyway? stars Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood are returning to Stratford and they are scared scriptless! Prepare to laugh yourself senseless as improv comedy masterminds Colin & Brad create original scenes, songs and more from whatever you, the fans, suggest! You just might also get to join in on the fun on stage. It’s an hilarious comedic high wire act… just like a live version of “Whose Line…!” How the heck do they do it? We don’t know either! Don’t miss the best duo in improv, Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, for a wildly entertaining “Evening with Colin and Brad”.

Colin Mochrie
Hilaritycus smoothius

Scotland, that craggy, majestic, malt whiskeyed land, has spawned many myths besides the Loch Ness Monster. One such legend is Colin Mochrie (Hilaritycus smoothius). A migratory creature that left his birthplace for the Great White North (Canada), Colin learned his theatrical craft through repeated behavioural rituals at Studio 58 located in the mountain nestled, sparkling jewel of the Northwest, Vancouver, British Columbia.

A hard-working, imaginative mammal, Colin used his chameleon-like skills to blend in with others of his ilk, never being noticed, until noted anthropologists Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson discovered him at the Toronto Second City. Moving him to the Whose Line is it Anyway Institute in historical and damp London, England, Patterson and Leveson slowly groomed Colin till he became international sensation. Working with Drew Carey at the U.S based institute of the same name, only increased interest in the reclusive beast.

Brad Sherwood
Cranuis giganticum

As a young hatchling, Brad Sherwood (Cranius giganticum), fled the ice plains of Chicago for the arid expanse of the Rocky Mountains, where he settled at the epicenter of art and coyote sculptures, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Weaned on green chiles and isolation, he became a savant of self-amusement.

Years later, he hopped a hobo train to the Pacific Ocean where he searched for people willing to employ someone with an abnormally large skull. Eventually, he was plucked from the Venice Beach Freak Show by a band of improvising gypsies who passed him from troupe to troupe, until he was sold into servitude to some British Choreographer/Pirates. They, in turn, sold him to a British improv TV show, where he was hired to teach Canadians how to be funny.

Now, he is ward and caretaker of his least successful pupil, Colin Mochrie. Brad is given a stipend from the Canadian government to keep Colin from hurting himself or livestock. As part of Colin’s therapy, Brad tours with him in an improvised stage performance that helps creatively channel Mochrie’s delusions.


An Evening with Colin and Brad" is a fundraising event to support the Stratford Arts and Culture Collective. The Stratford Arts and Culture Collective is a not for profit umbrella organization of 30 Stratford arts and culture groups plus many independent artists. Our goal is to create an arts and culture centre as part of the Grand Trunk Community and Cultural Hub at the Cooper site. This long-term project is being developed slowly and thoroughly, with much thought and care, and is focused on the citizens of Stratford through our theme “Health, Wellness and Learning”. The proceeds from “An Evening with Colin and Brad” will help fund a feasibility study for the project. Much more information is available at:
