Myq Kaplan featured in the New York Times!

Yesterday, Comic Strip Live! favorite Myq Kaplan was featured in the national publication of record – The New York Times.

The famed “grey lady” has been taking a liking to the art of comedy in recent months, even going as far as to establish a weekly comedy & humor column highlighting some of the best and brightest young stars in the city, as well as nationally.

This week’s article featured Mr. Kaplan and how a working comic’s joke is constantly evolving. From the first time he or she tells it on stage, to three hours later while performing your 4th set of the night, to two months later when you submit it to television, and even to months after that when  it makes its debut on Conan. It was a fascinating read that not only allows the reader slightly into the hard-working comics psyche, but also lets you learn more about Myq Kaplan himself. Very inspirational and exciting. Give it a read!
