What does it mean to be, in the words of London's Daily Telegraph, "one of our finest improv comedians"? It means going on epic comedic riffs, glorious tangents studded with references to history, politics and religion. It means pulling punchlines out of thin air, instantly creating jokes other comics would spend years writing and polishing. It means, in short, being Greg Proops. Best known for his appearances on Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Proops has also appeared on dozens of TV shows, including HBO's Flight of the Conchords. He was a frequent guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately and Red Eye. Currently the host of the acclaimed podcast The Smartest Man in the World, now the "Proopdog" brings his witty and hyper-literate stand-up style to The American Comedy Co. in San Diego.
