MARCH Madness isn't over, but March Comedy Madness at Carolines on Broadway has found its "Final Four" champion. Rising star Myq Kaplan beat out 63 other comics in a rapid-fire competition modeled after the NCAA tourney, reports The Post's Mandy Stadtmiller. His winning bit? Kaplan lamented about having to fool Americans into buying books after they're turned into Hollywood films. "When the movie comes out, they'll put a picture of the actor on the book to trick people . . . Like 'Fight Club' was made into a movie, and then they re-released the book. So people were, like, 'Oh, Brad Pitt's in this book!' "
