People keep talking to and about Myq.

Like the Weekly Dig, here.

Myq is written about! By someone other than himself!

Welcome to the website!

This appeared on the internet today:a blog about Myq by comedy writer-about Sean McCarthy.

Also this appeared in the paper AND internet today (double fancy):a brief blurb about Myq by comedy writer-about Nick Zaino.

Thanks for coming to Myq’s website to read about Myq on other websites.
Go, internet.

*By saying you “should,” it’s not to put an ethical judgment on people who don’t.
We’re talking about being practical here.
This is about what will help us all.

Myq will be on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” on June 20 at 10pm!

Comedy Central is a cable station that broadcasts comedy to televisions and internets all around the world.

“Live at Gotham” is a show on that station that features standup comedians like me (and now not just comedians LIKE me, but also specifically me, along with some hilarious good friends of mine).

Gotham is a comedy club in New York City where the show was taped.

New York City is a city in the state of New York. “New York State of Mind” is a song by Billy Joel. Stream of consciousness is a style of writing.

Thanks for reading words on your screen!


Myq comes in second in the Boston Comedy Festival

Myq competed in the finals of the Boston Comedy Festival this weekend.
He came in second place. He is happy.

Here is something that said about Myq’s performance in his preliminary round: “Kaplan was going in as a local favorite, and he definitely exhibited one of the most polished stage presences of the night.”

Here is something that said about Myq’s performance in the finals: “Bostonist Honorable Mentions go to Myq Kaplan and Robert Mac. Judging from the applause streaming Kaplan’s way, either he brought a busload of friends, or he is one of the most beloved comedians in this city. He also deserves propers for cooking up some of the most clever jokes of the night.”

(a little passive aggressive, but mostly nice… thanks, Bostonist)
PS There were over 700 people in the audience. So even a busload of people would only have been a small fraction thereof, as most buses fit what, like 50 people? (I don’t know much about bus math.)
