TML’s Podcast Revue: The Smartest Man in the World
Written by Drew Greene
Comedian Greg Proops (His Royal Ambassador, his preferred title), has been working in entertainment for years. He is most known for his quick wit on the improv show, "Whose Line is it, Anyway?", that was popular in the late 90’s and early 00’s. Those skills have not declined, and are in clear display on his podcast “The Smartest Man in the World”. Whether he be opining on anarchy, his distaste for all-things-Gwyneth-Paltrow, or the history of the Negro league in the early 1900’s, His Majesty showcases a verbal wit that has no parallel. In fact, it is often hard to catch one’s breath in the vertiginous milieu of his diatribes. Summarily, whilst one feels smarter for having listened, one is not certain as to what he or she has learned. Seriously, Mr. Proops’ rants are a always educational, fun, and fascinating. Every week, I eagerly await his prognostications, pontifications, and powerful truth-telling. To get “smarted”, just click on the link.
