Jon Lajoie is one of a handful of talented performers who’s been able to harness their online success into something huge. Since 2007, the Canadian comedian has been uploading videos for his hilarious songs on YouTube, each one garnering millions of views. He segued that into a full-length album last year, live tour and his own half hour Comedy Central special. Perhaps, most importantly, his comic chops landed him an integral role on FX’s mostly-improvised hit show The League, wherein he stars as Taco alongside other Internet-savvy comic heroes Paul Scheer and Nick Kroll.
And now he’s just released his follow-up album I Kill People as a digital download. So, we thought it was high-time we catch up with Lajoie. Punchline Magazine‘s Matthew Gill — friend him on Facebook — sat down with the comedian/actor in Hollywood recently. Check out what transpired below. Enjoy.
