Most widely known as Frank on the hit NBC sitcom 30 Rock, comedian Judah Friedlander's slacker persona makes for a hilarious juxtaposition with his razor-sharp wit. Instantly recognizable for his "World Champion" baseball cap, long curly hair and oversized glasses, Friedlander uses a lazy deadpan delivery to riff on why he's better than everyone else at just about anything. With his freeform style, he uses crowd interaction to make up jokes on the fly. Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for his supporting role in American Splendor, Friedlander's also appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and published a karate book, How to Beat Up Anybody.

I would highly recommend this show for a refreshingly creative and intellectually stimulating evening. Upon entry I saw Greg Proop's walking around the room greeting his audience, with handshakes and one-to-one conversation; as though welcoming us to his home. His show is full of intellectual banter and political commentary. He Is the Smartest Man in the room.
Quotes & Highlights
“Here he is, though, in front of a live audience each week, bravely recording some of the boldest comedy on the podcasting frontier right now.” — Rolling Stone

It’s just Proops and you. There’s no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he’s off. An hour of great conversation that flies by at a break neck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation.
Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Paris, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco, Dublin and off the coast of St. Martin in the Carribean. Now you must fall.
Be there and experience joy for once in your life.
