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.

is it human though?
Explore narratives within my fantastical worlds, meeting different beings and various states of being.

Ubuntu Talks is a media platform that strives to create positive representations of black bodies in the media. This platform showcases and celebrates blackness by exploring various identities and sharing people’s experiences with the world.

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!
