Remember the Comedy Central series, Shorties Watching Shorties? Taking a stand-up comedian's bits and animating them sometimes can be a wonderful way to, well, illustrate the story being told within the joke. OK, I clearly need to stay out of the sun. The heat is beating me down.
But I also clearly can see something that's great and worth sharing, and Greg Franklin's animation of Myq Kaplan is one of those things. As is his previous work with Kyle Kinane and Jackie Kashian. Pretty soon he and his company will have transformed enough routines from enough great stand-ups that someone with access to the programming keys at a TV network will acquire them as a package and broadcast them on a regular basis. Until then, just click on over here over and over and over again. Time to watch Myq Kaplan's bit on "Jews and Sea Creatures," from his CD Vegan Mind Meld. Roll it!
