Colin Quinn to deliver keynote at Just for Laughs Montreal, Silverman, Meyers, Izzard, and others to headline
With Spring wrapping unofficially this weekend, details about countless summer festivals are popping up with one of the biggest being Just for Laughs Montreal. Professional comedians, businessmen, armatures, and industry icons are always in attendance at the premier festival. While passes for the festival range in price and access, one of the coolest is the Conference Pass. It gives access to young professionals, comedy enthusiasts, and students who are trying to learn more or trying to enter the industry of comedy. With the pass one can attend discussion panels, keynote speakers, award presentations, and Comic Pro series. I have to admit, it’s a cliché thing to say but this pass certainly does give the ultimate experience.
The idea of Just For Laughs can be a doozy if you aren’t ready for it. The nearly month-long festival offers up the best in the arts and comedy nightly with the culmination of the industry festival at the festival’s end.
