When you claim to be “the biggest” of something, you’d better make sure you’re ACTUALLY the biggest. Just For Laughs fancies themselves the biggest comedy festival in the world and to ensure nobody could possibly claim otherwise, they just announced over 35 additional shows to the Montreal festival that are so good you’ll think they’re making it all up.
We already told you about the first wave—nay, tsunami—of talent heading to Montreal in July, which includes David Cross, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Howie Mandel and way more that aren’t worth listing because we’re going to list a bunch more. This second avalanche of acts is just as impressive and features….
P.K. Subban hosting an all-star gala for charity on August 1

The return of Sebastian Maniscalco

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll’s Oh, Hello

Friggin’ Russell Peters 

SNL’s Jay Pharoah hosting his own All Access gala

The return of the Homegrown competition, hosted by Scott Thompson

Anthony Atamanuik and James Adomian’s Trump vs. Bernie


There’s seriously way more, the press release is like ten pages long.
If you’re way into all this, the best thing to do is check out hahaha.com for more info and tickets.
If you’re totally hardcore we’d definitely recommend getting a pass to the ComedyPRO conference where you’ll be able to mingle with industry heavyweights, watch panels, listen to live podcasts and tons of other insider stuff that will probably make you realize you have to work way harder if you want to make it.
There are probably more announcements, somehow, so stay tuned and start planning your trip like we should start doing.
