Home Shopping was a game played on the British edition of Whose Line.

The game involved Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles taking the parts of home shopping spokesmen selling three items. Two items were provided by Clive Anderson, with the third being suggested by the audience.

The focus of the game was on the unusual reasons given to purchase the items (including the solar powered torch, which is very long because "It's always daylight in some part of the world") and on Colin and Ryan's banter. On one occasion, the pair had to sell "old asparagus" and kept trying to influence the dialogue to force the other to come up with the reason to buy it. On another, both performers took the name of Gary and had to sell someone else's holiday snaps, with the constant refrain of "It's beautiful".

The game was converted into Infomercial for the American show
