Late 90s: Hollywood[edit | edit source]

After a regular on the UK version of the show, Ryan Stiles, managed to coax ABC into playing a few test episodes in America, the improv show became a hit across the pond.  Hosted by Drew Carey, one of the most memorable games was called 'Scenes From a Hat' where audience members wrote in funny scenes they wanted to see the actors act out.  One of the most reccuring themes was "Things you can say about (insert topic here), but not your girlfriend/spouse."

Today: Idaho[edit | edit source]

After it was announced that Whose Line is it Anyway was going to get a re-boot in 2013, the artifact seemed to kick into overdrive in a quiet town in Idaho, causing spontaeous jokes to be cracked.  The Warehouse caught wind of it and after hearing several locals make "...the points don't matter" jokes, Claudia and Pete begged to go after the hat.
