He opened up about the series to NorthShore magazine this past September, as he said the show ‘was sort of the beginning of the improv craze.’

He added, ‘I’m happy that we sort of got it into the public consciousness.’

Looking back on his long tenure on the series, Mochrie recalled, ‘When I first started doing Whose Line, my daughter was two-months-old. She turns 31 next week.’

Mochrie told the publication he was relieved to be playing to live audiences again after the early days of the pandemic had him doing shows on Zoom.
