Starting tomorrow, legions of the world’s best comedians will descend on Toronto for another rousing edition of JFL42. As foreign acts taxi the well-manicured airport runways of the city their minds will be on all the wonderful Canadians they’ll be performing for, but what do those Canadians look like to them?
If this is a question you’ve been pondering then not only are you kind of nuts, you’re in luck because we brought our cameras to Just For Laughs in Montreal last July and asked a bunch of really funny people who the first Canadian to come to mind was. To be inclusive we also asked some Canadian comics, which should give you a good idea of the differences between our homegrown heroes and the “others”.
Check it out and don’t hesitate to watch the other videos in this Just For Laughs series which can be found here, here, here, here and here.
