March was a short-lived game played on the British edition of Whose Line.
The game was closely related to the more well-known Hoedown, with the only noticable difference being that instead of the famous hoedown tune, performers had to sing about a given topic in the style of a march. Mike McShane or Tony Slattery frequently ended the games. Mike, in particular, had a tendancy to go all-out and perform verses twice the length of normal verses.
Paul Merton, Jim Sweeney, and Steve Steen have frequented March more than the other games of its style. In fact, none of those three performers have ever participated in its more popular successor, the Hoedown.
