SiriusXM is launching a Just For Laughs comedy radio channel

One of the biggest and most well-reputed comedy festivals takes place just across the border in Montreal: Canada’s Just for Laughs. Unfortunately, that’s a little far and hard to get to for many folks who live down here in the US of A. Good news, though: you don’t have to get a passport or cross over the border to enjoy the fruits of the fest’s labor anymore. Starting this Thursday, the festival group is launching a SiriusXM Radio station featuring over 30 years of comedy from their collection. The station will offer tracks from known stalwarts of the stand-up comedy scene, like Greg Giraldo (RIP), Dave Chappelle, Mitch Hedberg (RIP), Aziz Ansari, Russell Peters and Dane Cook. Color me sold. Tune in to Channel 403 on SiriusXM or at and enjoy.
