Comedian Greg Proops, known for his long service as a cast member on the TV improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway? as well as his podcast The Smartest Man in the World, has joined this month’s Comedy Exposition of 2016 as a headliner.
Proops takes the place of previously announced headliner Kurt Braunohler, who has departed from the lineup due to unforeseen personal matters, said a spokesperson for the stand-up comedy festival. Proops will top the festival's closing night, Sunday, July 24 at Lincoln Hall. He joins previously announced headliners Rhea Butcher, Marina Franklin, Eddie Pepitone and Megan Gailey. Tickets for the Comedy Exposition, taking place at venues around the North Side July 21–24, are on sale now.
