Myq Kaplan is a comedian named Myq Kaplan (pronounced “Mike Kaplan”). Myq has appeared on the Tonight Show, Conan, Letterman, James Corden, Seth Meyers, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, and America’s Got Talent. He has a one-hour standup special on Amazon, “Small, Dork, and Handsome,” and two podcasts, The Faucet and Broccoli and Ice Cream. His first album, “Vegan Mind Meld,” was one of iTunes’ top 10 comedy albums of the year, and his newest album, “A.K.A.,” debuted at #1. The NY Times called it “invigoratingly funny” and included it among its five “coronavirus best new comedy specials”… “to remind you of the old normal.” And now, here we are in the new weird!
When it comes to comedy, Marion Grodin can pretty much do it all. When it comes to life, well, she’s still working on paying her parking tickets and trying not to eat cake. Marion started out as a staff writer for the network sitcoms “It’s a Living” and “Princesses”, was put under contract to Twentieth Century Fox, and later went on to sell six screenplays. Just as she was about to embark on her seventh screenplay, it dawned on her that her father had not lovingly nicknamed her “Mouth” for nothing; she decided it was time to start saying all these funny things she was writing for other people to say.
Marion has been seen on The Joy Behar Show, NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and ABC’s The View where she recently made her second appearance.
Marion knows firsthand that laughter is truly the best medicine, having survived breast cancer, divorce, and various addictions – including an inappropriate relationship to Häagen Dazs.
In the tradition of Carrie Fisher’s “Wishful Drinking” Marion’s hilarious and heartbreaking book – “Standing Up – A Memoir Of A Funny (Not Always) Life” is published by Center Street, Hachette.
Besides appearances on Comedy Central, Amazon Prime and SiriusXM radio, Mr. Vignola also has performed at Montreal’s prestigious “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival and toured the Middle East with Armed Forces Entertainment.
Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America’s smartest comics. He’s headlined comedy shows on five continents. Whether it’s a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, master storyteller Shaun Eli proves that there’s hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? Serving on a NYC criminal jury? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he’s experienced Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready.
