The Smartest Book in the World is based on Proops' sensational, iTunes Top 10 podcast. The audiobook is a rollicking reference guide to the most essential areas of knowledge in Proops' universe, from the noteworthy names of the ancient world and baseball to the movies you must see and the albums you must hear.
The master of sarcasm and irony, taking a break from television and radio, recorded this double album for Laughing Stock over a couple of UK tours. It contains all new material. The David Copperfield/Claudia Schiffer routine could seriously damage your health.
Greetings, tiny mooses! In this episode, Proops takes a trip to that non-fascist American counterpart to the north, Canadia. Proops also explains the populist appeal of talking about sports, as well as how Howard Dean, the man whom Dick Cheney said no one ever liked, managed to win the governorship of Vermont five terms in a row. Plus: misuse of funds in Iraq? Never! Profiteering during wartime? Of course not!
[Contains explicit content] San Francisco in the late '80s was a real swinging place - sometimes literally, as was the case during the Loma Prieta earthquake. Seasoned improviser, actor, and comedian Greg Proops (Who's Line Is It Anyway?) remembers being in the city as it was thrown into chaos in this harrowing episode of Hold On with Eugene Mirman. Greg and Eugene get into the stalled World Series, pilfered cookies, crazy landlords, and terrified house cats.
All right, Christ, Buddha, and Zoroaster all walk into a bar...no, this is one you haven't heard before. We leave it up to master Proops to bring light to this trio. Also, Reagan's pale carbon copy? Gee, who could Greg be talking about? Tune in.
What's Greg's patriotic message for this week? From Scalia, the inevitable partisan bickering to come, beer can hats, it's almost too much for one to take. Have a listen.
Hello, Kittens of the Ocelot. Greg Proops is your host nation for this Olympian-sized edition of AudibleProops. He's doing it Greco-Roman style this week (i.e., naked, oiled, and on a bed of feta cheese), dropping the knowledge on your lame ass, and laying waste to all you hold dear and all he thinks he holds dear.
Hey party prawns! This week Proops has got nuthin' but time to lambaste everyone from Rick Santorum to his beloved President G.W. Bush, who ended his recent vacation early to sign a mysterious law inspired by one mysterious person. Also, Congress dares to take on the ultra-divisive "steroids are bad" issue, Halliburton fibs again, and a pet-store owner sees the face and shoulders of Satan on the shell of a turtle named Lucky.
This special edition of Audible Proops has no jokes, but Greg Proops says you should listen anyway. It was recorded September 13, 2001.
Hello, Nippers. Your pal Proops is filing from very, very, very (very, very, very) far away in this dispatch: the other side of the world, in fact. He's in New Zealand selling out shows at the annual Comedy Festival. Ever the intrepid comedian, Proops has the latest on Shrek, the hermit ram who was on the lamb for six years and whose ultimate capture, televised championship shearing, and subsequent visit with the Prime Minister have captivated the world.
Hey there groove chickens. All politicians are scary charlatans, but in a speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner, First Lady Laura Bush revealed that George W. Bush is just an ordinary guy! According to Laura's speech, W apparently doesn't like books, restraint, or subtlety, and once tried to milk a male horse! Plus, Proops explains why that whole Newsweek Koran thing was such a big deal, and gives a nod to teenage mule-lovers from Georgia.
"This is good stuff"
Proops serves up a hearty stew of celebrity quips loaded with chunks of irony for your listening pleasure. Liz Hurley is pregnant and Proops wants to know about celebrity sex. Speaking of sex, Sex in the City is back and, well, Proops will admit it's funny, in spite of Sarah Jessica Parker's terminal case of cuteness. Proops reminds everyone that teens will still be teens, what with Prince William coming of age and smoking jazz cigarettes.
Hello, pesky liberals! Festive swearing and baroque insults abound as the White House hands out Medals of Freedom to everyone performing violent rear-end assault on the Constitution. Also, we find out that the secular Jews who run Hollywood love anal sex, not Jesus biopics, and that Jessica Simpson's dad is hyper-aware of his daughter's cup size. Then, conservatives lay it out straight: you either love children, or you love abortion. What's it gonna be?
Susie's back on her NYC interviews, and her guest this week is sex educator and burlesque performer Ducky Doolittle, a.k.a. Knockers the Clown. Ducky enchants Susie with stories of cake sitting (part of her act) and talk about her early days working as a sex performer in a Times Square peep show. These days, when she's not clowning around, Ducky teaches sex workshops. She has some sage advice on how to feel sexier instantly. You can learn more about Ducky Doolittle at her website: www.duckydoolittle.com.
Hello my little quibblers. This week, Proops invites you to listen real close and then disregard every f***** thing you hear. In the news, Enron flexes its lobbying muscles in times of peace and stability to help some rich and powerful friends; Proops goes over some nicknames that world leaders give each other; and Supreme Court appointee John Roberts is white and nice.
Hello, piglets of the new millennium! Proops starts this episode off with a mournful piece about Brad and Jen's breakup. Why can't two moderately talented, fairly attractive, reasonably wealthy people stay together? Proops knows, and he's telling. Also, Prince Harry's recent Nazi dress up incident may put him high among the ranks of idiotic rich people.
Hang on muskrats, because in this episode, Greg tackles the Bush twins...reveals that hedgehogs, too, get drunk...explains what haggis is (and other Scottish culinary thills)...and rants furiously on much more. Tune in!
Stand to!...for a journey into Greg's favorite part of Italy: Self Induglia. Hold on fast, as this is but a stone's throw from Self Loathia. He's qualified to "rock the mike" and is cooler than you - and has all the reasons in the Union to back this up. Listen to him, you might benefit. And if any sticks, it's yours. Free (no extras, no hiddens). Isn't Greg a jolly-good fellow?
Welcome to the cavern of grumpiness, the source of the bitterness river, where the burning waters never stop whining. That would also be the studio of Greg Proops. Here, not only Teri Garr and Rob Lowe, but additionally, poorly cast movie stars are considered in Greg's review of how the Oscars should be re-vamped. He also touches on the loosening of pot laws in Switzerland, Darwinism as applied to high-risk sportsters, and Timothy McVeigh as martyr to other extremists.
