This might be a classic

I just finished watching Trust us With Your Life at Dish online and it was a riot. It was a little disappointing not having Drew on the show but after a few laughs I got past it. It is like Who’s Line is it Anyway but with a deeper meaning. I have shown a couple coworkers at Dish the episode and they agree that this show looks light it might be a classic.

Is It Any Good?

You can't go wrong with a star-studded cast like this one, many of whom hail from the improv classic Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and the added draw of the celebrity guest "victims" makes it hard to look away during this rapid-fire comedy assault on their fond memories. Happily the participants never mind the liberties the cast members take with their stories and at their expense, and the outcome is as fun for them as it is for the audience, especially when they're pulled into the mix in classic games like "Voice Over."

The show's comic effect is undeniable, but its appropriateness for all family members is another story. References to grown-up themes, physical body language with sexual undertones, and some borderline language like "skank" are iffy for kids, most of whom won't grasp the subtleties of the humor anyway. But for those who can, this hilarious series will certainly score laughs.
