Greg Proops called us up to talk about his new book “The Smartest Book in the World,” a spinoff of his “Smartest Man in the World” podcast. We talked about whether or not the book has become self-aware, why smart people like to write about baseball, and how he may (or may not) have achieved the all-time “points” record on Chris Hardwick’s “@ Midnight” (11 Central).
Greg will be at the Up! Comedy Club in Chicago for a podcast taping on May 13, and at North Central College in Naperville for a book signing on May 14. Details here.Follow @bigwakeupcall
