With one of the sharpest and driest wits around comedian Lachlan Patterson has built a solid career for himself despite the comedic disadvantage of basically looking like a male model.

The Last Comic Standing runner-up and frequent guest of Fox’s Punchlines Lachlan sat down for an interview before his shows at Punchline Comedy Club to talk about the strange business of comedy in today’s cultural climate, how a gig at Yale turned out to be one of the worst comedy experiences of his life, and the very specific reason he chose San Francisco to record his new comedy special.
