One of my favorite moments from Whose Line Is It Anyway.


Cait Cher : This is the point in the show when Ryan just gave up.

KoyasuNoBara : Colin just looks so proud of himself.

Joanna Evans : Pure brilliance! "No Colin.... that's wrong!"

Yesica1993 : Ryan is so adorable when he says, "No... No, Colin. That's wrong."

baler johnson : I swear to God Iv'e watched this a hundred times and every time I laugh.

Asha Mae : Someone's "updated" the Wikipedia page for the Arctic Tern claiming that its call sounds like "Backstreet Boys" and it's beautiful.

gingygeo : Here's to Colin Mochrie, the man who broke Ryan Stiles. TWICE.

Cassidy r : I love how Ryan calls him "Col" it's adorable

Morgana Jordanson : (dies laughing forever) Sweet mercy, this show is pure gold... I just noticed something though. In this clip and in the legendary 'Tapioca' one, after Ryan completely loses his shit, Colin just kind of sits there smirking and being all quietly smug. He KNEW that was going to crack Ryan up completely, and he totally did it on purpose, lol! 

silentbob82 : I was watching a nature show on tv the other week with my Dad, and they started talking about arctic terns. I couldn't stop laughing throughout the whole segment because of this moment from Whose Line. My Dad was really puzzled...

Hades Lord of the Underworld : 0:20 Look at how smug Colin is. He knew exactly what he was doing that smug bastard

wxclim8 : 0:36  Wayne can't even stand up, he's laughing so hard.  This rules!

Walter Kingstone : I love Colin's 'Ohhh' when Ryan tells him he was thinking an owl.

CorvusOfMellori : In the event your Ryan is broken, consult the owner's manual.

Yesica1993 : I want this on an endless loop.

Shazbut01 : I wish we could have a split screen of Wayne's reaction

Jungle Empress 85 : Only Colin can make Ryan lose it like that.  :D

Putrid Bile : Colin is one of the people that makes me reconsider my desire to destroy all life.

Dan The Enigma : The entire Whose Line cast corpsing? SEND FOR THE MAN!

Belushi87 : i like how Colin is all calm about the situation.

Luke Anderson : I don't know what's funnier. Colin's arctic tern or Ryan's reaction.

Pauline Chambers : This one and the Tapioca one I swear...

res20stupid : You can tell he let the Canadian accent slip through here.

Blowout_Comb : Colin is the King of off-the-cuff comedy

Shannon McGuire : This is video is the only thing that matters in this world


Kaitlyn Kornoely : god bless

S1R-D2 : comic genius at its best

Ruby Foxx : Hilariously cute is how I would describe this clip 😆😍😘 a legendary classic....

Li Morgan : I always enjoyed this show, but moments like these were the best.


lonewolf36s : oh dear god i just laughed so hard it hurts and im crying rofll!!!!

hailzmarie1 : WAYNE THOUGH

Bill the Fifth : So! Damn! Hilarious!

Raymond Jiang : Keep pressing 3 lmao

NytemareQueen : Uh-oh, Colin broke Ryan!

ytmom : Ryan is just gone, Brad is losing it, and Wayne is literally on the floor. Colin, you rock!

0newingedcrow : The exceptionally rare site of Ryan Stiles cracking; that's how you know it's funny!

Will Hutch : thanks for the good laugh

Ripred49 : Giraffe.

OrangePie : Took me awhile to get it haha. For those that are having the same difficulty as me: Ryan has the idea that the next song will be in the style of "The Who," and decides to set up the riddle, "what bird always says the name of the next band," with the answer being an owl. However, he does not expect Colin to actually try to guess the answer to the riddle because it is basically impossible to guess. Even though Colin knows he has no chance of getting it right, he decides to throw out a random guess, and says "Tern," a type of bird, and then adds "Arctic tern" to be even more random/abstract. Furthermore, the bird in the riddle says a band name, so Ryan pushes Colin to say the band name that the Arctic Tern says all the time. Instead of giving up, Colin continues pretending that it is a logical guess, and gives the random answer "back street boys" in his best Arctic Tern bird voice. lol!

TheDUDERulez1 : aaaa TERN...an Arctic TERN?

sunsetmaster4 : Unfortunately, there's just no hope for you. Yes, fans of the show do, in fact, know how its done. It's quite obvious that you are not a fan. I can't believe I am participating in an online argument on YouTube with someone who has so little information to offer. There's obviously no reason to argue since it's quite clear that you will not defer to the fact that I am right about this one. Have a good day.

Timsy Jose : collin...the best

james friel : sorry no argument you say will fix the true facts that if you simply watch this episode, you will SEE the order of the songs that they do them in. The Who followed by the backstreet boys. If they didn't know the order, Colin wouldn't have said what he said because he wouldn't have known the backstreet boys song was next. Voting down comments won't eliminate facts. Fans of the show know how its done, simple as that.

Carlo Freda : Hard to believe Ryan and Wayne were nominated for a Primetime Emmy (with Wayne the only one to win) and Colin wasn't.

sunsetmaster4 : Any blooper or behind the scenes will show you that they redo entire games, not one-or-two lines, whenever their is an issue. If they redid individual lines, well that wouldn't be very improvised, now would it?? Additionally, please learn not to be a moron before commenting. There's a reason your comments have been voted down so many times. Have a good day.

james friel : well you obviously dont have a clue how the show works then. They do have an order, just watch the behind the scenes, the bloopers, etc. If you want more facts, the NEXT song is a backstreet boys song, so Colin got the order mixed up. Please learn the show before commenting.

wittlebaybee : I love how the look on Colin's face when Ryan cracks up is half "What the hell did I just say?" and half smugness at being able to make Ryan laugh like that.
