FOX is lining up big names of comedy guest stars for its new improvisation series “Riot” which premieres next month. Names like Steve Carell, Jason Alexander, D.L. Hughley, Cheryl Hines, Tom Green, Chris Kattan, Mayim Bialik, David Arquette, Oscar Nunez, Andy Dick, Orlando Jones, Nicole Sullivan, Michael Ian Black, Will Sasso, Andy Buckley and Rob Delaney.
The new series is hosted by Australian comedian Rove McManus and has a cast of regulars that must face unpredictable improv challenges involving sketches, singing and dancing. And there is of course, a curveball/gimmick– the set features a stage which tilts at a 22 degree angle. It’s a whole new slant on comedy…GET IT!?
“Riot” premieres Tuesday, May 13th at 9 pm Eastern on FOX and is produced Steve Carell’s Carousel Television.
