Just For Laughs to hold inaugural French language digital comedy festival


As a response to all of Montreal’s summer festivals being either postponed or cancelled altogether this year because of the corona virus pandemic, the French language branch of the Just For Laughs Group has recently announced that it will hold its first ever digital comedy festival. 

Called the “HAHAHA FSTVL”, it will take place from May 28 to 31. It will feature over 60 Francophone comedians from Quebec and around the world, where they will perform in 18 shows that will be filled with exclusive and never-before-seen premium comedy material.

“I am proud to present … a program that is equal to the excellence that Just For Laughs viewers are accustomed to, while offering local comedians the opportunity to broadcast their content and profit from it,” said Patrick Rozon, Vice President of Francophone Content for the Just For Laughs Group.

Some of the comics who are slated to perform at the HAHAHA FSTVL include Laurent Paquin, Maxim Martin (and his daughter Livia Martin),  Louis T, P-A Methot, Melanie Couture, VirginiemFortin, and Paul Taylor. Programming highlights include a comedic review of the past two months in the world of sports, a late night show featuring two female comics who deal with the humorous side of love and sex, a live reading of some of Monty Python’s greatest sketches (in French), and a mysterious comedy show with a line up of yet-to-be-announced comics and special guests. 

Passes for the HAHAHA FSTVL digital comedy festival cost $12 for a one-day pass, or $40 for a four-day pass.

The 38th of the Just For Laughs, which was originally scheduled from July 15 to 26, has been postponed and is rescheduled to take place from September 29 to October 11.
