Vegan Comedian Myq Kaplan

Vegan comedian proves successful on Last Comic Standing.

Vegan comedian Myq Kaplan made it past the first round of finals last night on NBC’s Last Comic Standing after three of his fellow comics were voted off. In the seventh episode of the seventh season, Kaplan was not sent to the chopping block. Kaplan has been gaining popularity and laughs through his vegan jokes, as he did last night. He recently released his first CD: “Vegan Mind Meld.” Some have speculated the Kaplan is a fan favorite, and might even take home the gold—a prize of $250,000.
