Comedian Shows the Funny, Lighter Side of Vegans

Our Hen House, the all-media online clearinghouse for all things animal rights, is pleased to present the newest installment of its Art of the Animal series, an enlightening and light-hearted videocast interview with acclaimed vegan comedian Myq Kaplan.

Our Hen House’s Art of the Animal series is committed to presenting vegan artists who advocate for animals in their work and use their creativity to educate. Says Our Hen House Co-founder and Executive Director Jasmin Singer, "The Our Hen House Art of the Animal series explores the under-examined, yet so vitally important connection between art and advocacy. Myq Kaplan's ability to bring his unique and intelligent brand of humor to bear on the quest to change the world for animals is refreshing, and, in its own way, profound."

The hands-down hilarious comedian, who has appeared on Conan and was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, uses his sharp comedic mind and unabashed wit to deliver a healthy dose of humor to the serious subject of a vegan lifestyle. Speaking as an insider, rather than pointing fingers from the outside, he nevertheless pulls no punches in his jabs at vegans, though he manages to take down their detractors as well.

Our Hen House produces resources that visitors can use to find their way to create change for animals. Using, video, audio, interviews, reviews, and the written word, the organization provides daily updates on what the public needs to create change. Changemakers come in all shapes and sizes — artists, grassroots activists, academics, lawyers, students, business moguls, media darlings, etc. No matter what their niche is, Our Hen House aims to give people what they need to be part of a new world for animals.
