<![CDATA[The Smartest Man In The World Proopcast Live Podcast & Book Signing]]> THE SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD PROOPCAST - LIVE PODCAST AND BOOK SIGNING THE SMARTEST BOOK IN THE WORLD: A LEXICON OF LITERACY, A RANCOROUS REPORTAGE, A CONCISE CURRICULUM OF COOL


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.

Download for free at: Proopcast.com



The Proopdog is best known for his unpredictable appearances on Whose Line is it Anyway? He can be seen on the New Season on the CW.

Greg has a brand-new stand up special called Live at Musso and Franks available at gregproops.com recorded at the legendary Hollywood eatery.

Greg can be viewed on the new season of @midnight on Comedy Central.
Proople Rain brazenly smokes dope on TV on The Green Room with Paul Proevenza on Showtime.
Greg has lent his voice to Star Wars the Phantom Menace, The Nightmare Before Christmas and was Bob the Builder.

Mr. Proops has been a guest on Red Eye, The Late, Late Show and Chelsea Lately on E!

90 minutes

Perhaps best known for his stint on the improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway, comedian and podcaster Proops’s compendium of trivia, passionate essays, lists, and observations might not be the smartest book, but it’s certainly an entertaining one. Readers may be distracted by his quirks—“woman” is always spelled with a capital W, and Proops lists numerous reasons why, such as “Old Women raise the world and know everything” and “war is menstruation envy”—and his deep, abiding love for baseball, which is both the subject of a lengthy essay and a common metaphor throughout the book for discussing Roman emperors, the British monarchy, bombshell beauties, and U.S. presidents, among other random subjects. Rather than offer a linear examination of a particular topic, Proops jumps around, citing the brilliance of poets Baudelaire, Sappho, Basho, and Blake in addition to T. Rex’s Electric Warrior album and Alfred Hitchcock’s film Lifeboat. Arguments could be made that some subjects, such as punk (he lists only the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollocks, the Clash’s London Calling, and the Ramones’ Rocket to Russia), don’t receive the attention they deserve, but what Proops lacks in breadth he more than makes up for in enthusiasm. It’s a terrifically random appreciation of cultural touchstones that’s sure to inspire readers to look further. (May)

<![CDATA[Al Madrigal]]> AL MADRIGAL
Al Madrigal’s unique and lyrical delivery makes him more than just a stand-up comedian, but
an expert storyteller. A fan-favorite on the Emmy® Award-winning The Daily Show with Jon
Stewart, Madrigal’s regular contributions as correspondent have led to numerous scripted
television guest spots, including Welcome to the Captain (CBS), Gary Unmarried (CBS), The
Ortegas (FOX), and The Tax Man (FOX). Most recently Al can be seen co-starring on NBCs
About a Boy with Minnie Driver and David Walton.
 
As a stand-up, Al has starred in his own half-hour special, Comedy Central Presents: Al
Madrigal, as well as having performed on Conan, The Tonight Show, Lopez Tonight, The Late
Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately, Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver’s New York
Stand-Up Show, Pretend Time with Nick Swardson, Comics Unleashed, and The 3 Non
Juans. On October 1st, 2012, alongside comedian Bill Burr, he launched the All Things
Comedy network – a podcast and video network founded, owned and operated entirely by
comedians. On it, Madrigal and fellow comedians Chris Spencer and Maz Jobrani release
weekly episodes of Minivan Men- a podcast for regular people with children.
 
"One of the most brilliant rising comics" - Hollywood Reporter
 
"He mostly tells real-life, hilarious stories that are taken from childhood, fatherhood and
 
experience in between and sound more like the Sedaris siblings than George Lopez" - Austin
American Statesman
 
“Al Madrigal looks like a Hispanic Zach Braff” – Unknown

"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago

What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.

"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago

What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.

"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago

What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.

"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago

What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.

Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.
