One of the highlights of the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal was Big Jay Oakerson show on day two of the Fest, as they overtook the “Midnight Surprise” show with “What’s Your F**kin Deal”.
The setup of the show was pretty innovative. While it was a given that it was going to be an evening of crowdwork and insult comedy from the lineup (which included the roastmaster Jeff Ross and Colin Quinn, Jeff Ross, among others), after every other comedian, Oakerson had the first two rows move to the back of the room as the rows behind them moved forward. Giving everyone a chance to inch closer to the front of the room and get insulted.
Clearly, this went over well, as the show will be one of the high points of a packed New York Comedy Festival. The show, now titled “What’s Your Effing Deal!?” will make its debut in NYC at the New York Comedy Festival on November 9th at the Comedy Cellar at the Village Underground.
The lineup? It’s killer! Big Jay Oakerson will welcome Lynn Kolplitz, Nick Turner, Kurt Metzger, Dave Attell, and Paul Mecurio. Jay breaks it all down for us here.
