Just for Laughs Montreal, arguably the world’s largest and most prestigious comedy festival, kicks off in late July, and the lineup announcements are coming out like crazy.
Earlier this month, the fest announced a handful of headliners and shows, like Jerry Seinfeld with Gad Elmaleh, Trevor Noah, Ali Wong, Judd Apatow, John Mulaney, and galas from David Spade, Laverne Cox, and Howie Mandel, among others.
The latest wave of show additions is a big one, with new podcasts, tapings, club shows, and Zoofest events, including:
