You have to be joking? Myq Kaplan


The joke that you loved but no one else did?

Sometimes, I believe that there is a loving God, like when I get a parking spot.

Other times, I don’t believe in a loving God, like when there’s a genocide.
The most difficult part about all this is, genocide opens up so many parking spots.

(People might how found it difficult to believe that I ever got a parking spot.)

The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?

 My girlfriend works selling fine jewelry. If you ask her what kind of jewelry it is, she’ll tell you “It’s fine.” If an audience ever doesn’t respond to it, I’ve said I’ll stop doing the bit. But every time, there is at least some laughter, each audience condemning a universe of audiences a lifetime of hearing this joke. (Which I like fine. I don’t know if “proud” is a word I’d use. Maybe for the incredible unnecessary length of this post-joke analysis. But not the joke.)

The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?

I loved the quiet confidence of Steven Wright and the righteous yelling of George Carlin, so inspired by both, I’ve averaged them out and so perform my comedy at a regular, reasonable volume.

The last thing that made you cry with laughter?

My friend Giulia is a comedian who made a Tumblr called “Making a Murderer Hairstyles,” based on the documentary series. She is funny. This is funny. But the thing that made me laugh the most was when she was recently telling my girlfriend and me about the Tumblr. She said “I had a thing that went really viral. You remember Making a Murderer?” and my girlfriend said “That was YOU?”
