JUST FOR LAUGHS 2011


This year the press conference was set in a totally unusual setting: the McGill University campus!

The energetic ANDY NULMAN was the first to introduce the new concepts for this year:
YOU NEED THESE SHOWS!!
YOU NEED THESE STARS!!

And what an exciting line-up it is for this the 29th edition.

We were treated to a surprise appearance by RUSSELL PETERS who will host the inaugural Videotron Just For Laughs Gala Russel Peters: Best Night Ever at Place des Arts. The thing I love about RUSSELL PETERS's routines is that they are terribly insightful about the different quirks of our multi-ethnic country. For this Gala he handpicked some of his favorite comics : Jimmy Carr, Dom Irrera, Sebastian Maniscalco, Nick Thune and more.

Big names include CRAIG FERGUSON, ERIC STONESTREET from Modern Family, JOHN OLIVER from the DAILY SHOW with Jon Stewart one of my all time favorites, EDDIE IZZARD, DANNY BHOY, JIMMY CARR and much much more!

This Festival is rich in all types of activities so follow the link on the left to get all the details.
Tickets are on sale now. Don't miss your chance to see your favorites!

I think we do need laughter to live well and sometimes just to regain our balance. We are so lucky to have this fun fun fun Festival each year!
