I had kinda dismissed Greg Proops
as that goofy TV guy that does improv, pre-Oscars coverage, game shows, etc. Turns out he's actually a hilarious standup too. Who knew? Listen to "Paul McCartney"
off his "Houston, We Have A Problem"
album. Great bit. The whole album is strong too. I get a little of a Carlin vibe in how he's not afraid to be really scripted and literate with his jokes. Plus his riffs are impeccable too. Really fun when he goes after the crowd for not keeping up.
