'Smartest Man in the World' LIVE Podcast Recording

This live recording of the podcast that is taking the earbuds of smart comedy fans by storm, will feature numerous off-the-cuff and mildly prepared rants by the self-professed smartest man in the world, as well as audience questions and interaction. It is colossally hilarious.

From the maximumfun blog, Colin Marshall reviews the podcast thusly: "I'm no comedy nerd, but it seems to me that much of the way Proops performs exists outside the normal spectrum of comedic expectations. He walks the thinnest imaginable line between irony and sincerity; sometimes blasting the audience with a thick, gooey spray of vaguely multisyllabic adjectives, deadly maladies of centuries past, and lines from 'Antony and Cleopatra'; sometimes simply connecting with a story or an opinion that's cleanly, uncomplicatedly his own... He holds court with a manner of speaking that's part old-school cartoon Englishman, part gay caricature, part regular Joe's impression of an egghead, and part stoned Southern California surfer."
