Bar Mitzvah Dance Class

I don’t know if I was the most awkward thirteen year old ever. I definitely wasn’t the coolest but, hey, I could still play basketball back then. As long as you have hand-eye coordination, you can’t be THAT awkward.

The same can’t really be said for comedian Myq Kaplan. You may have seen Myq this summer on NBC’s Last Comic Standing but before that (well, not right before that), he was just another awkward Jewish teenager nervous about dancing at bar and bat mitzvah parties. His mother must have also been worried because she signed him up for a dance class at his synagogue. As you can only imagine, it didn’t go so well.
