Whose Line Club is an unofficial Whose Line Is It Anyway?-inspired Discord server based off of /r/ScenesFromAHat. The group typically plays games at 8:30 PM Eastern time, but occasionally do surprise games at other times. The group often streams their games on Twitch and has archives available on YouTube.

Regular members include:

  • MeanElephant: The guy who started the server. He organizes most of the games and currently operates the Twitch stream.

  • Basket
  • DannyMiii
  • a.k.a. Delta
  • Donut Korea
  • Juniper
  • M3Times
  • Mufasa (moderator of /r/ScenesFromAHat)
  • Platonic
  • Richard Kelley
  • Wolfman Hot Dog

Games the group are known to play include:

Whose Line Club has the following tropes in the hat:

  • Absentee Actor: Given that it's based around a Discord server, this happens quite a bit due to real-life circumstances.
  • Affectionate Nickname: MeanElephant's girlfriend is often referred to as "Al", in a reference to his display name often being "MeanElephant, Et Al."
  • Berserk Button: Do not ignore MeanElephant's instructions as he tries to keep the Discord channel orderly.

  • Catchphrase: "New topic?" for MeanElephant, signaling a new prompt for Scenes from a Hat.
  • Cross-Cast Role: The "bachelorette" for Let's Make a Date is almost always played by a man. (If it happens to be Mufasa, expect a terrible falsetto.)
  • Determinator: MeanElephant will move heaven and earth to make sure the sessions happen and are successful. For the first Fiasco playthrough, he installed and set up streaming software on approximately an hour's notice on a new computer just so that there would be a record.
  • Lost Episode: Yes, even this group has one. Unusually, it was deliberately declared a Lost Episode in the middle of its broadcast.
  • Non-Indicative Name:
    • MeanElephant is a) a pretty chill guy and b) not an elephant.
    • Wolfman Hot Dog is neither a lycanthrope nor a beef foodstuff.
    • Basket is not a basket.
  • Overly Long Gag: To the point that just mentioning the line "And my axe!" will send members into a rage. This comes from a playthrough with a prompt "If famous movie lines went on too long"; the response that mentioned the line went on for three and a half minutes.

  • Real Life Writes the Plot: DannyMiii's job at a hospital has come up on more than one occasion.
  • Running Gag:
    • It's always five o'clock somewhere.
    • Everybody but MeanElephant thinking the weekly games started at 9:00, not 8:30, has been the target of much Self-Deprecation.
    • The infamous, overly-long reference to Gimli's "And my axe!" keeps getting brought up.
    • This just in: two weeks until this entry grows stale.
    • Santa has the worst defense attorney imaginable.
    • Whoops, there it goes.
