June 3, 2013 – The Quartier des spectacles will play host to some seriously silly situations with the return of the Just For Laughs Festival, July 10 to 28, 2013. All the big names in comedy from around the world will be here with non-stops gags, hilarious plays, and side-splitting shows whose main goal is simply to make you happy.
This year’s edition boasts an expanded programming schedule highlighted by the introduction of a brand-new club show, Date Night: The Relationship Show, which joins returning powerhouse The Nasty Show from July 17 to 20 at Club Soda. Audience sensation The Ethnic Show kicks off the festival with a four-night run from July 10 to 13.
And for all you Saturday Night Live fans, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, and Taran Killam will be among the furiously funny people attending this 31st edition. Of course, the festival wouldn’t be complete without its famous Parade of Twins on Saturday, July 27.
Also back again is the oh-so eclectic Zoofest, an incredible springboard for comedic up-and-comers, and, arguably, the wildest festival in the city. Dance, theatre, improv, comedy, and music, all with shades of burlesque, await you from July 4 to 28.
Turn that frown upside down in Montreal this July!
