If you we’re disappointed with last year’s Just For Laughs line-up well I think this years will be its redemption. They have announced their line up for this years festival and I am very excited.
To say the least, I am a little rusty around the comedy corners these days and am slowly getting myself back into the swing of things. Anil and I were at the conference and little did I know we booked an interview. With whom you ask? I had no idea. So the host comes out and does Impersonations of Lewis Black, Bill Burr, Marc Maron, Seth Rogen and James Adomian. Little did I know IT WAS James Adomian. So when he came to do the interview, I was like oh that’s the host and he’s none of those guys.
Of course I’ve heard of his name before and when he came to the Comedy Nest I had just left for Yuk Yuk’s so we never met. But I’m a professional so on with the interview we went. Luckily from co-producing the Mobtreal Comedy Corner, questions came a little easier than they would of last year. Plus, he was real easy going and I actually enjoyed myself in this moment of panic. I think I handled it well. See for yourselves.
So who does JFL have coming out this summer? Check out just some of the names that are confirmed for July. I think you will be pleased.
Don Rickles, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari, Russell Peters, the cast and creators of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bill Burr, Lewis Black, Nick Offerman, Kate McKinnon, Broad City, Ron White, Jim Jefferies, Marc Maron, Mike Birbiglia, Tommy Tiernan, Doug Benson, Jim Norton, Chelsea Peretti, Noel Fielding, TJ Miller, Chris D’Elia, Jimmy Carr, Kathleen Madigan, Kumail Nanjiani, Paul F. Tompkins, Miranda Sings, Pete Holmes, Nick Thune, Thomas Middleditch, Jerrod Carmichael, Brody Stevens, Colin Jost, Ari Shaffir, Kurt Metzger, Al Madrigal, Ron Funches, James Adomian, Greg Proops, Ben Roy and Michael Che. I know right? Don RIckles? Dude (yes I called you dude) It’s going to be a fantastic run of shows this year and if you are a total comedy junkie like myself well you will want to pick up the new and improved pass system. If you want to catch galas and shows at a wicked price, the pass is the way to go.
Who has a gala you ask? Well the man Don Rickles does of course from July 23rd-25th. Seth Rogen is next on July 26th. I’m so excited to see Andy Samberg here this year! This guy and his crew have me in tears every time I watch them. Catch him July 24th. Looking forward to this gala. Then there’s Russell Peters who will be back on July 26th-27th. But it doesn’t end there. They still have 5 more galas to announce.
OFF JFL is back this year and many solo shows on the bill as well. Lewis Black, Jim Jeffries, Aziz Anzari, Marc Maron, Jimmy Carr, Chelsea Piretti, Doug Benson, Chris D’Elia, T.J.Miller, Kathleen Madigan, Ron White and Youtube sensation Miranda Sings will also be here.
