Montreal and Toronto were mildly threatened when it was announced that Vancouver would be getting its own version of Just For Laughs to take place in February, but they still felt confident that it wouldn’t overshadow their own respective festivals in terms of big name acts.
That threat level has raised significantly over the past couple days, first with the announcement that David Cross will be bringing “Making America Great!” to Van City for his only Canadian date, and now with the revelation that BILL BURR will come to town on January 17 for a special festival preview show.

One of comedy’s hottest acts will take to the stage at the Orpheum Theatre for one night only and tickets are on sale NOW, so stop reading this, buy tickets, then come back and read the rest.
Okay, there’s not much else to say other than the show will start at 7:00pm. We should remind you to take a look at the rest of the JFL NorthWest lineup so you can get in on all the hot shows. Best of luck when purchasing tickets, and here’s to west coast comedy! *Raises majestic goblet of adorned with killer whales*.
