• Just For Laughs: New Faces of Comedy revealed; watch them in action!

    Each year at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival — arguably the most important fest in the industry — the New Faces of comedy are introduced. In short, these are the up-and-coming comedians festival producers have deemed the brightest and most worthy to watch for the upcoming year. Two groups of New Faces comedians will perform at the festival starting Wednesday. It should be noted here, that the New Faces lineups are the only ones the festival doesn’t announce until right before the shows happen.

    But, we finally got word on who the comics are. And since most of you won’t be in Montreal to check out their sets, we wanted you to get a glimpse of each. Check them out below.
