The Smartest Man in the World Proopcast

Rolling Stone Magazine “Here he is, though, in front of a live audience each week, bravely recording some of the boldest comedy on the podcasting frontier right now.”

It's just Proops and you. There's no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he's off. An hour of great conversation that flies by at a break neck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation. Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Paris, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco, Dublin and off the coast of St. Martin in the Carribean. Now you must fall. Be there and experience joy for once in your life.

The Pajama Men

"As funny as all get-out!" - Broadway World

Helen Hayes Recommended

Beulah would eat a spider to fit in with the cool kids. Nadine’s arm is missing and she wants it back. Franz’s biggest problem is life is too easy. And a procrastinating King has only 700 years to get it together because if he doesn’t, it’s certain death for everyone.
Blending their trademark wit, characters, improv, and fast-paced physical comedy with plenty of new surprises, comedy duo The Pajama Men come to UP Comedy club with their newest show: a thrilling, time-warped, joke-ridden tale, whose seemingly unrelated storylines come crashing seamlessly together in breathless Pajama Men fashion!

The Pajama Men: Just the Two of Each of Us will run for 70 minutes without an intermission.

Starring: Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez
