Fast and Loose is a British television series on BBC Two. Conceived by Dan Patterson, one of the creators of the popular long-running series Whose Line Is It Anyway?, it mirrors the series in format and style with the addition of some new games. Guests take part in numerous improvised sketches in which each comedian inhabits a certain character or movie genre. The only series was eight episodes long and hosted by comedian Hugh Dennis. Fast and Loose is the inspiration for the 2012 American show Trust Us with Your Life on ABC, hosted by Fred Willard and featuring a celebrity guest on each episode.

Format

The style and format is similar to Channel 4's Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Mock the Week both of which are also produced by Dan Patterson. Each episode has six performers, with an additional guest performer for one of the sketches.

Games

  • Forward/Rewind: Participants are given a scenario to act out and the host may call out "forward" or "rewind" as he pleases while the players must follow accordingly.
  • Interpretive dance: A player (usually David Armand) will mime out a popular song while the other participants are wearing mufflers and must guess what song it is.
  • Double Speak Game: A pair of players (who talk either in unison or saying every other word) acts as an expert on a topic suggested by the audience while another pair (with the opposite restrictions) is either interviewing or learning from the first pair.
  • Sideways Scene: Players must act out a scene while lying on the floor. The camera is positioned from the ceiling, thereby giving viewers the illusion that the players are in an upright position.
