Dan Lyons is not trying to make it in standup comedyNewsweek reporter Dan Lyons, the man behind Fake Steve Jobs, emailed us to confirm that he has definitely not been making appearances at comedy open-mic nights in San Francisco:

Ive been holed up in Boston all summer. On vacation Would never dare do standup
