Stand-up comic Myq Kaplan knows his demographic by now, and that is "people who know the word demographic." With a master's degree in linguistics to complement his blazing-fast wit and skill with wordplay, Kaplan's sophomore release Meat Robot is a perfect answer to the question 'What if somebody that's incredibly smart also realized they're really, really funny?' Host of the Hang Out With Me podcast, Kaplan is unafraid to hit on any number of topics this time around, even if that means excluding audience members because of their incestuous lesbian grandmothers. And while the album isn't officially released until tomorrow (and can be pre-ordered on iTunes here), we've got an exclusive stream of the entire thing in the replies all day today! I'll leave it at that, and just say that if you like your comedy smart, fast and rewarding, this will be very worth your time.
Cool, man! Only being so helicopter parent about it because me and Myq's press guy both know that if we get this album into people's ears, it'll be a huge hit, haha.
Really great stuff. I think a lot of his content goes in the direction of a lot of stuff that is "trendy" right now, so if this catches the right ears, he could be huge. I think this is only the second new comedy album I've listened to this year, the other being Pete Holmes. Any other worthwhile recommendations for this year?
