Inviting the audience into the humor is the focus of the show. Whether he’s juggling bean bag chairs, playing a melody on “concert balloon”, or levitating a bowling ball, Kaplan’s preposterous blend of dazzling skill and shameless gimmickry is sure to amaze and amuse.
Notable shows include a recent performance as guest ‘balloonist’ with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and network television appearances on ABC TV’s The View and The Statler Brothers Show on TNN. David has headlined internationally on major cruise lines, from Alaska to the Mediterranean to Tahiti. Kaplan has also opened shows for numerous renowned entertainers including Steven Wright, Dennis Miller, David Spade, Leon Redbone, David Brenner, Harry Blackstone Jr., and the Smothers Brothers.
Since the early eighties, David has delighted audiences of all ages with his highly original act. Inspired by the antics of Keaton, Sellers, Victor Borge and the illustrious Maxwell Smart among others, Kaplan delivers a most unique and hilarious spectacle.
Kaplan’s greatest talent may lie in his uncanny ability to appeal to a wide cross-section of the audience. Spectators, young and old are welcomed into a wonderfully strange world they will not soon forget.
David resides in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife and two children.
