Event Details

"A roast is an event in which an individual is subjected to a public presentation of comedic insults, praise, outlandish true and untrue stories, and heartwarming tributes, the implication being that the roastee is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult, and therefore, show their good nature,"said Wikipedia. Don't miss the likes of Josh Gondelman, Ken Reid, Tom Dustin, Joe List, Dan Hirshon and Sean Sullivan


Myq Kaplan is a come­dian named Myq Kaplan (pro­nounced “Mike Kaplan”).

The Come­di­ans mag­a­zine calls him “a com­edy machine, in the best pos­si­ble way. The way that some machines vend soda or pre­vent other machines from killing future rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies – that’s how Myq Kaplan does com­edy: relent­lessly, method­i­cally, unblinkingly.”

Myq made his net­work tele­vi­sion debut on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” and has since gone on to appear on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Fer­gu­son” and in his own half-hour “Com­edy Cen­tral Presents: Myq Kaplan” spe­cial. Most recently, he was a Top 5 final­ist on the most recent sea­son of Last Comic Stand­ing. He has also appeared on Com­edy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” at the New Faces show of the 2009 Just For Laughs Fes­ti­val in Mon­treal, was voted 2008’s Best Local Come­dian in the Boston Phoenix, and won the 2009 NY’s Fun­ni­est Standup Competition.

A Jewy-ish athe­is­tic vegan who spells the name “Mike” weird (sorry or you’re wel­come), Myq enjoys words, social jus­tice, Net­flix, and comic books. Also non-comic books, ping-pong, and being great with women. And gram­mar and run-on sen­tence frag­ments. And of course, enter­tain­ing his demo­graphic, which is any­one who might know the word “demographic.”
