The Stage Welcomes “Last Comic Standing” Alumni
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – June 23, 2017

Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico's Best Bet, welcomes "Last Comic Standing" alumni Lachlan Patterson and Joe Machi to The Stage. The comedians will perform one show on Thursday, June 29, at 7:30 p.m., and two shows on Friday, June 30, at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Lachlan Patterson
Lachlan Patterson is a Canadian-born comedian and entertainer. His career in comedy began at a comedy club's amateur night when he was 19 and has since blossomed into tours crisscrossing the U.S. and Canada. Known for his sarcastic comedy and charming stage presence, Patterson finished as the runner-up on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" in 2014. Since then, he has appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show," Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and "Tosh.0," FX's "Legit" and VH1's "Sexiest Artists" among others. He also released a comedy CD, "Jokes to Make Love To," and produces a weekly podcast with fellow comedian Joe Praino called "The Kooks of Komedy."

Joe Machi
Joe Machi is a stand-up comedian who came up through the ranks of the New York comedy club scene, frequently performing at comedy hot spots including New York's Comedy Strip Live, Stand Up NY and Caroline's on Broadway. Masterfully embracing his naturally awkward tendencies, he pairs his silly brand of comedy with an even sillier delivery to highlight the idiosyncrasies of daily life. His refreshing style of comedy earned him a win at the 2013 New York Comedy Festival's "Funniest Comedian Competition," a win at the 2010 New York Underground Comedy Festival's "Emerging Comics Competition" and fourth place on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" during Season 8.

Tickets to the comedians' performances at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino range between $20 and $25 and can be purchased online at www.thestageatthestar.com. Attendees must be 21 years old or older. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
