When comedian Greg Proops was a teenager in 1977, he was an upstanding young man and a promising student. But on a trip to Sacramento, to spend a few days at the state house learning how it feels to be a lawmaker, he learns all too well what that means, when he's CAUGHT…being a teenager.
Comedian and actor Greg Proops is probably best known for his appearances on both the US and UK versions of the improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway, and his impressive resume of film, television and voice work. He hosts the popular podcast "The Smartest Man in the World."
In the final story, writer Mary Jo Pehl has a story about one of those times when being caught is not just embarrassing and awkward, but also teaches you something about yourself… something you may not want to know.
