Both laughter and tears can be cathartic, but only laughter is OK in front of your dog. Laugh until you cry with this GrouponLive deal to see Greg Proops' standup comedy. Choose between the following performances:
Erudite, intellectual, and endlessly entertaining, Greg Proops first set funny bones abuzz as a regular performer on both the British and the American versions of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, where he developed a reputation for his razor-sharp wit and penchant for horn-rims. Today that reputation serves him well as he continues blazing the comedy frontier with guest performances on ABC’s Trust Us with Your Life, frequent appearances on E!’s Chelsea Lately, and his one-man podcast The Smartest Man in the World, which is as likely to touch on the early days of jazz as the finer points of fictional dogs. The loquacious laughsmith described the one-man talk show to the Huffington Post as “the closest thing you can get to hanging out with me. I drink, I pontificate, and you don't get to say anything.” A master of both the one-liner and the slow-burning comic tale, Proops presents an evening of high-minded comedy that leavens the world's absurdity with a healthy dose of irreverence and helps audience members ace upcoming SATs.
Both the Elsinore Theatre and the McDonald Theatre host their respective evenings with fitting elegance. The Elsinore’s deep-set proscenium surrounded by stonework and dramatic lines dates back to the 1920s. Off to the side, a Wurlitzer organ waits, ready to erupt with life to welcome performers or soundtrack indoor baseball games. The McDonald Theatre’s history stretches back to the same era, and in the decades since the venue has seen silver-screen masterpieces, high-school proms, and everything between.
