* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine:
** After Creator/PhilLaMarr and Debra Wilson appeared in the last UK season, we've had more ''Series/MadTV'' alumnus like Nicole Parker on ''Series/TrustUsWithYourLife'', and now Keegan Michael Key on the 2013 revival.
** Did you know Aisha Tyler and Gary Anthony Williams were both in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''?
** Before appearing on ''Whose Line?'', Gary was in an indie comedy film called ''Take 22'', which also featured Archie Hahn from the British version.
** [[Music/OzzyOsbourne Jack Osbourne]] appeared here after being in ''Series/TrustUsWithYourLife'' once. Sadly they didn't get Kelly at the same time.
** Happens again when Aisha brings in Sheryl Underwood from her other show ''The Talk'' (of special note, another co-host from that show is Jack and Kelly's mom ''Sharon Osbourne''!)
** One time they get [[{{Film/Bridesmaids}} Wendi McLendon-Covey]], whom Ryan actually knows in RealLife, making this trope literal!

** The Irish Drinking Song ends with Colin delivering the last line, which was usually a bizarre non-sequitur. It's a good thing it was the last line of the game, because the other three guys would always break up in laughter.

* CreatorBacklash: Jim Sweeney admitted a few years ago on MySpace that he never really cared much for Whose Line. He explained that while it was fun to do, true improv should never be seen more than once, as would be the case for live shows. He said that Whose Line loses its quality if you watch reruns because you already know what's going to happen, and there's no spontaneity.

* BreakthroughHit: This program essentially launched Wayne Brady's career.



* EnforcedMethodActing: Unavoidable, due to the nature of the show. Many of the reactions from the performers are unexpected.

* ''Mixed Messages'': Introduced in the 5th revival season. This one's the love child of ''Two Line Vocabulary'' and ''Playbook[=/=]Every Other Line'', with three players acting out a scene while two of them get all their dialogue from the texts of two audience volunteers.

* AccidentallyAccurate: InUniverse. The Newsflash using clips from ''Film/BasketCase'' included the part with Belial doing a GroinAttack, leading to Jeff and Ryan misleading Colin into thinking it was "a giant monster with a big penis." In the actual movie, [[spoiler:Belial is responsible for a rape scene, of which [[FreezeFrameBonus a snippet makes it into the Newsflash]].]]

** Defied during TheRevival when they bring back "Doo-Wop" and the picking of a woman's name from the audience to sing about ([[TheFunInFuneral specifically about how she died]]). Someone in the audience actually shouts "[[{{WesternAnimation/Archer}} Lana!]]" to which Aisha snaps "NOT Lana!"

* BannedEpisode: The "Wil Wheaton" episode was original taped in early 2015, and was supposed to air the following summer, but instead was pre-empted. The episode didn't air until summer of 2017, although it was shown overseas. It's never been stated why the episode was pulled from airing, but some fans speculate it's because of Will [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPQJVoHMTQE using the prop gun like he's about to commit suicide]] at one point (he's supposed to be acting like a hostage taker), and CW may have thought that humor was [[DudeNotFunny too dark for the show.]] Even Ryan remarks in-game, [[LampshadeHanging "That seems harsh."]]
