How was your experience?
I enjoyed the Punch Line--the interior was intimate, the sight lines good, and the staff courteous, friendly, and efficient. The opening acts were pleasant if unremarkable. Greg Proops, however, was a major disappointment. I'd seen him on television (_Whose Line Is It Anyway?_) and heard him on the radio (BBC) and I anticipated more sustained wit than I heard. He jammed about twenty minutes of solid stuff into an hour-long set--the rest was fat jokes and attempted edginess. I understand that Mr. Proops, a Bay Area native, plays here fairly often--which makes grateful indeed for my Netflix subscription....
