Just For Laughs used to be as Montreal as bagels and fatty suppers, but with the creation JFL42 in Toronto and several successful cross-Canada tours, the brand is becoming quite cosmopolitan. But it can’t be a certifiable national treasure without some proper west coast representation, which is probably why JFL decided to launch the first ever JFL NorthWest comedy festival, coming to multiple venues across Vancouver this February!

From February 18-27, a hearty handful of the world’s best comics will descend upon the emerald of Canada’s Pacific coast for shows, laughs and jokes about rain. If this lineup doesn’t force you to add “Tickets to JFL NorthWest pretty please” to your Christmas list, then you probably aren’t as big a comedy fan as you thought.


TREVOR NOAH • WANDA SYKES • LEWIS BLACK • MIRANDA SINGS • JEREMY HOTZ
JANEANE GAROFALO • RON FUNCHES • TODD BARRY • KYLE KINANE • HASAN MINHAJ
NICK THUNE • WES BARKER: STUNT MAGICIAN • THIS IS THAT LIVE • BERT KREISCHER
HARI KONDABOLU • THE NASTY SHOW WITH BOBBY SLAYTON, BIG JAY OAKERSON,

Because Vancouver is a town that enjoys its produce fresh and local, some of the city’s top homegrown acts will go toe-to-toe with these international favourites thanks to the “Best Of The West Series”, featuring:

INSTAGRAHAM • HIP.BANG! • 10 SPEED • THE HERO SHOW
SIDEKICKS • PHANTOM SIGNAL • THE RYAN AND AMY SHOW
KYLE BOTTOM’S COMEDY BUCKET • ALICIA TOBIN’S COME DRAW WITH ME
JOKES PLEASE! • TEENAGE DIRTBAG • KINGS HEAD COMEDY • VANCOUVERITE

 
Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 11 at 10:00am PST through TicketFly.com, so mark your calendar, save up some quarters and tell everyone you know that you’re going because it’s gonna rule.
