Comedian Myq Kaplan started as a baby, then grew up. You missed the baby part, but you can see the adult version on the 2008 season of Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" after being a finalist in the 2007 Boston Comedy Festival and Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight. Also he was voted the 2008 Best of Boston Local Comedian in the Phoenix, and won Boston University's Funniest Student Contest (it's a big school), and other impressive/boring things. Check out or ask his grandmother for more. PS He's funny.
