A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN
Just a couple of years ago, Jon Lajoie was a little-known television actor in Montreal, and then—you'll never guess—YouTube changed his life! He started posting his raunchy musical comedy videos (see: "High as F#%k," "Two Girls, One Cup," and "Show Me Your Genitals"), and quickly, he started getting millions of views and being recognized on the street as his many characters ("Hey, aren't you MC Vagina?"). Now, the young comic has a talent development deal with HBO, a starring role in FX's The League, and is in the process of collaborating on a project with two of his more famous fans, Will Ferrell and SNL writer Adam McKay, also co-founders of the comedy website Funny or Die. At this four-night stint at Carolines on Broadway, Lajoie will perform stand-up and songs from his debut album, You Want Some of This? Yes, please.
