About Jon Lajoie
With his outrageous personality and irreverent brand of comedy, Jon Lajoie became one of Canada's most recognized stand-up performers who also had a successful career onscreen. Born in 1980 in Montréal, Québec, Canada, Jonathan Lajoie attended Dawson's College theater program, graduating in 2001. He launched his career as an actor with a featured role on the sitcom "L'auberge du chien noir" (Radio-Canada, 2003), where he played an English-Canadian musician named Thomas Edison. By 2007, Lajoie had established a reputation for being an over-the-top stand-up comedian who sang misogynistic songs accompanied by his acoustic guitar, and often told offensive jokes that insulted everyone from the mentally handicapped to feminists to homosexuals. He became an Internet sensation after posting music videos of his songs "Everyday Normal Guy" (2007) and "High as F*ck" (2007) on YouTube. Lajoie also made inroads on American television, appearing on "Comedy Central Presents" (Comedy Central, 1998- ). In 2009, Lajoie became a series regular on "The League" (FX, 2009), an improvisational show about a fantasy football league where he played a perpetually stoned slacker named Taco.
