He is a 2010 Last Comic Standing Finalist and has appeared on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, the Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central Presents, and all the other places he’s been. You can listen to Myq’s podcast, Hang Out With Me, on the Keith and The Girl network. His debut CD, Vegan Mind Meld, was one of iTunes’ top ten best-selling comedy albums in 2010, followed by Meat Robot in 2013 and his one-hour Netflix special Small Dork and Handsome in 2014. 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.”

Kenny DeForest is a 5 year stand up comedy veteran based in Chicago, IL. Labeled a hustler by his peers, Kenny’s comedy can be described as edgy, smart and honest. Since arriving in Chicago, Kenny has become a regular performer at Chicago’s top clubs and showcases including The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Bar, The Lincoln Lodge, Comedians You Should Know, and featured on the widely released “Chicago Mixtapes: Comedy Mixtape”; all after being named “Favorite Newcomer 2010” by comedyofchicago.com. The most important thing of note is that Kenny always has as much fun performing as audiences do watching him.
Cocoon Central Dance Team
Cocoon Central Dance Team
WE ARE COCOON CENTRAL DANCE TEAM, a choreographed dance-comedy act, and we dance until people start laughing. We have a hyper-earnest talent show quality with character-driven performances, and people love it. We’re physically adept, absurd, and committed.

We’re confident in our abilities to represent the lady wave because there’s nothing out there like us. We’re very aware of the expectations of women in comedy and we subvert those expectations with a variety of explosives.

Our diverse range (independent film, visual art, synesthesia) informs our comedy, which culls Minelli theatrics and Streep subtleties into a delightfully entertaining package. We’ve got a beat and you can dance to it.
