OFF-JFL: Comedy 101

Just For Laughs

Company website

NYC’s roughest survival of the fittest live comedy show comes to Montreal! It's Open Mic meets a Roast as a crop of inexperienced comedy rookies take the stage for the first time in front of a large audience hoping to get laughs, while a panel of brutal comedy headliners sit in judgment, ready to ring in with some tough “advice.” It's Tell a Joke or Be a Joke as Montreal’s own go up against a panel of Comedy’s toughest critics. It’s confrontational, it’s crass, it’s raucous, and it’s an absolute blast.

SiriusXM’s Ron and Gail Bennington host.

Love sketch comedy? Love the feeling you get when you don’t know what to expect and raw talent reaches out and punches you in the chest? Then this is the show for you!

What you need to know: You might know Arj Barker as "Dave" from HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, or as the co-creator of the off-Broadway hit The Marijuana-logues. Come see his new show Get In My Head and you’ll know a lot more about him. Maybe too much.
