Dan Lyons is not trying to make it in standup comedy Newsweek 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
Which raises the question:Could there be a Fake Dan Lyons out there? Meanwhile, the real Lyons is back blogging, and today he's heckling Microsoft for hiring standup comedian Jerry Seinfeld as a new pitchman . The mind reels.
