TV show description:
This unscripted comedy series is based on the Australian TV show called Slide Show and is hosted by Rove McManus.
Each episode features a group of regular players -– including John Ross Bowie, Jamie Denbo, Brian Palermo, Jordan Black, Jessica McKenna, Meryl Hathaway and Rob Gleeson — as they improvise a series of comedy improv sketches and games.
The players must think on their feet as they face unpredictable song, dance, and sketch challenges — often while navigating the show’s trademark set (which tilts at at a 22.5 degree angle) or while making their way in complete darkness.
Two guest celebrities take part and head up the teams. They include Steve Carell, Jason Alexander, D.L. Hughley, Cheryl Hines, Tom Green, Chris Kattan, Mayim Bialik, David Arquette, Oscar Nunez, Andy Dick, Orlando Jones, Nicole Sullivan, Michael Ian Black, Will Sasso, and Andy Buckley.
This episode has not aired yet.
First aired: TBD
