No, it's not a misprint. That's the way Myq (pronounced Mike) Kaplan spells his name. Kaplan is an accomplished stand-up Jewish comedian who has been appearing in lots of venues lately. He was a finalist on Last Comic Standing, had his own Comedy Central special and has performed at many comedy clubs. He is a veteran of late night TV, including The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brian and Late Late Night with Craig Ferguson.
In the video below, Kaplan performs a set at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, a New York comedy club, and discusses what its like to write and perform comedy. If you want to see his performance on Late Late Night with Craig Ferguson, just scroll down to the next video. Enjoy!
