Beta Test NerdMelt Showroom

April 8th at 7pm it’s Greg Proops Is The Smartest Man In The World Proopcast!

It’s just Greg Proops and you. There’s no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at a small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he’s off for 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, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco, and off the coast of St. Martin in the Caribbean all in one year. Now you must fall. Be there and experience joy for once in your life. Download for free at

You like stories, but you like being right even more, don’t you? Join us and find out if you can really tell if someone is faking it.

With stories by Shadi Petosky, Baron Vaughn, Adam Conover, Grant Cotter, Brandon Wardell, and Sara Schaffer. Music by Eli Braden.

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of the showroom. Follow us on Twitter and track us on our blog for more info about any of these shows!
