Old Job New Job (or New Job Old Job) was a game played on the British edition of Whose Line, though it made a few appearances on the American series.

The game was a straight scene-performance done by three people working at a particular job. The third person in the scene (either Steve Frost or Ryan Stiles) had previously performed a different job and had to demonstrate this in his performance. The two jobs were very badly matched, leading to physical comedy.

In one rendition of this game, all three performers were ex-fashion models in new jobs, very similar to Three Of A Kind.

  • One rendition of this game holds the distinction as one of the shortest games ever. The scene took place in a hospital. Colin was a patient, Ryan was a nurse, and Steve was another nurse who used to be a farmer. He made Colin gets on all fours and he put on a long glove. Clive promptly ended the game right there as "[he] could see where it was going." The scene lasted 27 seconds start to buzzer.
    • This doesn't beat the only playing of Scene With A Prop, however, which lasted only eleven seconds.
