Podcast star and Whose Line Is It Anyway? regular Greg Proops dropped by A.V. Club headquarters after a recent podcast taping to play Pick A Choice, our new game show of fantastical pop cultural decision-making. If you caught the premiere of Pick A Choice with comedian Wyatt Cenac, you know the rules: In each round, our guest draws two cards from a deck filled with famous names (both real and fictional) and one card from a deck of scenarios. Then it’s time to titularly pick the titular choice by deciding who would be a better fit for the given scenario. Who would you rather have as your opponent in a spirited game of Twister—Gordon from Sesame Street, or Bender Bending Rodriguez? Greg faces that dilemma and others with aplomb as the improv pro shows himself to be a deft player of our game.
This episode of Pick A Choice is brought to you by Kansas City Royals legend George Brett, who did not wear a mustache (not much of one, anyway), even though I mistakenly remembered that he did. I was probably thinking of another small-market ’70s superstar, Robin Yount, because why wouldn’t you think of Robin Yount? He was a fine athlete.
