If you’re South African and a certain age, then you practically grew up with Mochrie and Whose Line Is It Anyway?, which was somewhere on eTV before the weekend movies kicked in.

Today, you’ll have to watch reruns for his Whose Line Is It Anyway? appearances – and in the meantime, there’s improv.

Hyprov: Hypnosis and comedy

What’s Mochrie doing today?

According to his website and Facebook page, he’s currently part of a show called Hyprov with Asad Mecci.

This combines comedy and hypnosis! Audience members who participate in the show can be “put under” and placed into comedic situations with comedy experts – and yes, you’re guaranteed safe as long as you’ve got a good sense of humour!
