Watch Greg Proops Exquisitely Go Through His “Set List”

thecomedybureau:

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. 

The Set List: Dana Gould

[Dana Gould had a very brief run in San Francisco in the late-eighties and for that I’m allowed to admire and proffer the prolific comedian. He’s a standard for creativity, ruminates over the things he loves and attacks it sooo hard, sooo direct, yet, with scrutiny and grace]
