Greg Proops

Greg Proops is very smart. At least he sounds that way. His podcast The Smartest Man in the World certainly does nothing to disprove his reputation as an intellectual. If you’re afraid that he’s smart in a gross annoying way, I encourage you to listen to his albums Joke Book and Elsewhere to hear how unbelievably hilarious he is.
