10 Most Hilarious Whose Line Is It Anyway US Moments

3. H-O-R-W-A-R-D

One of the most impressive parts of any ‘Whose Line’ show was when one the stars, usually Wayne Brady, would improvise a song on the spot. A common game was when an audience member would be picked and Wayne, or sometimes Chip Esten or Brad Sherwood, would make up a song based off a couple of details about them.

It was amazing to see how quickly they could create a coherent, funny and often catchy song within just a few seconds. But you know what else is amazing to see? Everything going wrong.

This occurred when Wayne was tasked with making up a song about Howard, an engineer picked from the audience. For some reason, on this given day, Wayne was unable to correctly spell the name Howard. He kept putting in an extra ‘r’, spelling it ‘H-O-R-W-A-R-D.

Not only that, but the regular pianist on the show, Laura Hall, inadvertently hit the tempo button and caused the song to go completely off the rails.
