COMEDY CENTRAL® RECORDS TO RELEASE MYQ KAPLAN’S “MEAT ROBOT”
DIGITAL ALBUM ON JUNE 11
NEW YORK, May 28, 2013 – COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases Myq Kaplans’s digital album ”Meat Robot” on Tuesday, June 11.
Showcasing his wickedly smart and witty brand of humor, Kaplan’s “Meat Robot” is the comedian’s newest fast-paced, mind-melting and side-splitting stand-up comedy album. Kaplan delves into his grandmother’s attempts to make grammar fun, how to avoid being axe-murdered and his love for fake meat names. Other topics include “Open Relationships and Tigers,” “Chuck Norris and Owls,” and “Super Mario and Will Smith.”
Kaplan is a 2010 Last Comic Standing finalist and has appeared on “The Tonight Show,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents,” and “Conan.” His album “Vegan Mind Meld” was one of iTunes’ top ten best-selling comedy albums in 2010 and The Comedians magazine calls him “a comedy machine, in the best possible way.”
