De Lama's (translation: The Llamas) is a Dutch television show made by BNN and first aired on 26 June 2004. It is an adaptation of the Channel 4 show Whose Line is it Anyway?.

Patrick Lodiers hosts the show, which contains both well-known and more obscure elements of theatresports. The most important of these is improvisation.

De Lama's consist of the following comedians: Ruben Nicolai, Tijl Beckand, Ruben van der Meer and Jeroen van Koningsbrugge. Jandino Asporaat, Ad-Just Bouwman, Sara Kroos, Arie Koomen, Kristel Zweers and Martijn Oosterhuis are ex-Lama's. Other than in the British and American series, every episode of De Lama's features a Guest Llama (Gast Lama), a well-known Dutch (or Belgian) person who offers suggestions for games and always joins the regulars for one or two games at the end.

At the end of 2006, regulars Sara Kroos and Arie Koomen left the show (the latter later returned for a single episode), leaving it with only three regular performers. To help alleviate this problem, broadcaster

The name of the show originates from a remark the original team of Lama's used a lot: "hoor ik daar een lama schijten (of zei je wat)?", which translates roughly as "is that a llama I hear taking a shit (or did you say something)?". The more-or-less matching joke in English would be "Does a llama shit in the woods?"
