Just For Laughs 2016 Recap

Recovering from JFL Montreal 2016!


So it’s been 4 days since I was in Montreal and I think I’ve finally come down.  Great week! Fantastic comics, lovely industry (who knew that would ever be written?), and an unbelievable JFL team.  CONGRATS EVERYONE – you should be so proud of what you accomplished!

Here’s a few things I learned:

  • Kevin Hart is as short as you think, and just as nice as you’ve heard
  • the 22 hour SAQ is not actually open 22hrs a day
  • I can say ‘bonjour’ so well but that’s it. Sales people continue in French I stare blankly
  • Homegrown competition was comic-for-comic the best show at the Festival (IMHO)
  • I have more party dresses than I thought
  • when you see Judd Apatow on the street the first thing you remember is going through his dirty laundry
  • Theatre Ste-Catherine throws one helluva after party
  • there are weirdos on the streets at 6am
  • K. Trev was robbed at Jeff Ross’ Roast Battle
  • I am so proud of all the Yuks comics who killed at every show and taping
  • and finally, Canadian comedians are the BEST IN THE WORLD!!!!

Straight up, the Canadians at this Festival, all the Canadians, really shined. From galas, All-Access, LOL tapings, Roast Battle, and all shows in between, we were the ones really lighting up every stage. JFL is the biggest comedy festival in the world, and I hope that it continues to bring in our awesome comics, even if we lose them all to the states, I’d love to have them always come “home” and be a part of this very special fest.

À bientôt (I totally had to look that up).
