Every year in July, the Just for Laughs Festival gets Montréal guffawing with its many shows and galas, theatre shows, musical comedies and stand-up comics. It’s a gathering not to be missed for comedians and comedy-lovers alike!
Montréal’s Just for Laughs Festival presents hundreds of free outdoor activities alongside 250 shows in 25 downtown venues, including several in the halls of Place des Arts. It has become the world’s biggest comedy festival, attracting nearly two million visitors. With performances in both English and French (under Juste pour rire), it brings together some 1,700 artists from 19 countries. The festival’s goal? To make people happy!
