When was the last time you laughed so hard that your body physically ached? Or your faced streamed with tears because you giggled uncontrollably? If you have to think about it, then it’s time for a few laughs. Let’s start with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood. 

The pair are well-known as the stars of the Emmy-nominated improvisational show, Whose Line Is It Anyway? Both Mochrie and Sherwood joined the cast of Whose Line when it was a British improvisation series and continued as series regulars on the American version hosted by Drew Carey.
