Why attend the Just for Laughs Festival 2016? If you’ve never taken the time to visit this event in Montreal now is the time to do so. The event has one goal and that is to make people happy. It takes place every year – and has for 37 years! The JFL COMEDYPRO event is one of the most recognized and most sought after events every year. It brings together some of the largest names in comedy from around the world for a few days full of incredible laughing. This year, it is taking place at the end of July.
There are two events wrapped into one here. The Just for Laughs event begins July 13 and runs throughout July 31. The COMEDYPRO component is the final days of July 27 through the 31st. Visit every day or come for just a few. It’s worth it.
The Artists You’ll Find Here
The names are well known. The people are incredible. And, you never know what’s going to be said about Just for Laughs! Take a look at some of the names promised for this year’s event.
Nikki Glaser: Glaser is perhaps one of the most incredible young talents you’ll see today. She is perhaps best known for as the star and creator of Comedy Central’s “Not Safe w/ Nikki.”
Carrie Fisher: She’s nothing short of a legend in comedy and is simply going to sell out her show quickly. As a multi-comic, she’s done everything from TV to the big screen and even plenty of standup shows. At Just for Laughs, she’ll be hosting a televised Videotron Gala that is surely to be interesting.
Lewis Black: If you enjoy political humor, you’ll appreciate Lewis Black’s latest. He’ll be a part of the “Living in Fictional Times: A Political Conversation with Lewis Black.” It’s sure to have outstanding content, but thoughtful, hilarious commentary.
Jay Pharoah: He’s known for his acting and his stand up and with good reason. He’s also a regular on Saturday Night Live. You won’t want to miss his performance at Just for Laughs.
And, there are plenty of additional people to plan to see. That includes Sarah Silverman, Jeff Ross, Tom Green, and Janeane Garofalo.
Are You Attending?
Just for Laughs is an outstanding time and anyone who visits and loves comedy will tell you they have no plans to miss the next experience. However, the event is also fantastic for the city.

For many, this is one of the best events of the year every year.
