Myq Kaplan is a comedian named Myq Kaplan (pronounced “Mike Kaplan”).
The Comedians magazine calls him “a comedy machine, in the best
possible way. The way that some machines vend soda or prevent other
machines from killing future revolutionaries – that’s how Myq
Kaplan does comedy: relentlessly, methodically, unblinkingly.”
Myq made his network television debut on “The Tonight Show with
Conan O’Brien” and has since gone on to appear on “The Late, Late Show
with Craig Ferguson,” “Conan,” and in his own half-hour “Comedy
Central Presents: Myq Kaplan” special, as well as being a Top 5
finalist on the most recent season of Last Comic Standing. He has
also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” at the New Faces
show of the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, was voted
2008’s Best Local Comedian in the Boston Phoenix, and won the 2009
NY’s Funniest Standup Competition.
