Live Show Recaps

Greg Proops: Standup Saturday

More Proops? You got it!

After participating in the insanity of Friday night’s Catch 23 and MANTOWN improv shows, Greg Proops went solo to do what he does best: quick, biting, intelligent standup to two near-capacity houses at Comedy Bar. Like he says, he really is the smartest man in the world.

“You will graduate from this show,” he promised.

Indeed, they were the best history and sociology classes ever.

Proops does a third go-’round at Comedy Bar tonight with a taping of his podcast, The Smartest Man in the World, followed by hosting duties for Sunday Night Live. Both are close to the sold-out point, so get crackin’ on those reservations.
