Comedian Myq Kaplan

For more than a decade, comedian Myq Kaplan has concocted witty quips about time travel and veganism. He has appeared on programs like “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Last  Comic Standing,” and his own special, “Myq Kaplan: Small, Dork and Handsome.”

In his new comedy album “No Kidding,” Kaplan shifts from one-liners to a more long-form comedic approach, all the while mining the theme that he does not want to have children.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Kaplan about his roots in comedy and why veganism is a good conversation starter. Kaplan performs at 8:30 p.m. on Friday , Feb. 17 at the Idiot Box Comedy Club in Greensboro, at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 at The Southern in Asheville and at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, Feb 19 at Motorco in Durham. ​

Charlie Shelton-Ormond is a podcast producer for WUNC.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
