Kaplan one of the highlights of Santa Cruz’s Vegan Comedy show

Published Wednesday July 27

Featuring: Myq Kaplan, DNA, Matthew Gubser, Virg. Jones and special guests.

It was at summer camp, 1992. Maybe ’93.

It was the year Mike Kaplan became Myq Kaplan. Thank you, Prince.

“He had just changed his name to a symbol and I thought that was weird. Or cool,” Kaplan recalled. “I thought, ‘I could be unusual like Prince.’”

Little did teen Myq know that the brand would stick. And, after so a lot of “ohpyn myq” nights and dozens of TV shows — including 3 with David Letterman — the now 38-year-old stand-up wallows in a modicum of fame.

“People believe it is a calculated show business move,” Kaplan said. “It was a non-calculated, peculiar kid move.”
