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.
