ABOUT LACHLAN PATTERSON

Hometown: Vancouver, British Columbia
Current Location: Venice Beach, California

At an early age, Lachlan Patterson knew he would have to use his sense of humor to get him through tough situations. At the age of 19 he performed his first show at an amateur night in his hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. After several years spent learning the art of stand-up comedy, Patterson found his stride and began touring throughout Canada, landing at festivals like Montreal's Just for Laughs, the Halifax Comedy Festival and the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival.

His television appearances include "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham," "Tosh.0," the FX comedy "Legit" and VH1's "Sexiest Artists." Patterson's debut album, "Jokes to Make Love To," made Rooftop Comedy's top 10 in its first year and continues to be a major seller on Amazon and iTunes.

In his free time, Patterson, along with fellow comedian Joe Praino, co-hosts his weekly podcast, "Kooks of Komedy," where the two discuss surfing, comedy and their personal lives.
