A perfected balance of improviser and stand up is found in only a handful of comedic performers and Greg Proops is one of them. That’s why he’s one of the best to ever do improvised stand up on Set List.
Just watch him go through these never before seen topics like he’s just doing his normal act.
[Greg Proops needs something in San Francisco dedicated to his namesake, whether it be somewhere the Dogpatch, the Panhandle, or a pier of some sort. And if it’s on a pier, have the placard say “pierless”, reel talk.
"They say the South will rise again. Well, shit does float"

Depression is crazy because it’s like living a mash up of Garfield and Groundhog Day, right? Because every day is the same day and they are all Mondays! — Aly Jones @ Stork Club/Storking Comedy [Paraphrase]
Ravenesque, moonish, moody, glowing eyes with wolfish glint, a lady in black brandishing wit and guitar pick (corresponding with a guitar that, admittedly, isn’t living up to its potential). Karen Kilgariff is the coolest folk hero of the almost-analogue, post-comedy boom collapse era. She came into prominence in the 1990s, starting out in Sacramento, then San Francisco, then introduced (widely) on the seminal Mr. Show. She’s since matched might with Mary Lynn Rajskub as Girl Guitar Club, wrote for the Ellen DeGeneres Show and twisted on the tips of tastemakers’ tongues.
Playing music is the easy part of my job. Convincing other people to pay money to see me scream in their faces is the hard part of my job.
