Just for Laughs Festival Powered by Loto-Quebec Shines Light on New Comedians

The summer months are rather special for the province of Quebec, as Loto-Quebec strives to bring a wide variety of entertainment events, festivals, and open-air gatherings for everyone to enjoy. The Just for Laughs Festival taking place in Montreal is among the organized events Loto-Quebec is especially proud of. Many new names are going to be introduced during this year’s edition of the comedy festival.

Large comedy festivals are the place to be when people are on the pursuit of live entertainment and living their life to the fullest. Well-known names in the entertainment industry such as Kevin Hart, Trevor Noah, and Nick Kroll have the power to perform before a sold-out audience and create memories that last. Loto-Quebec is willing to once again make the month of July a memorable one for Quebecers with the help of international superstars in the stand-up comedy world.

Comedy Shows Galore

July 10 is about to see the official start of this comedy festival, but the first live shows would commence on the following day. The Ethnic Show is about to bring diversity to Montreal’s Club Soda featuring renowned names to the likes of Cristela Alonzo, Dave Merheje, Anthony Devito, and Rafinha “Rafi” Bastos among others.

According to the official schedule of the festival, every day of the comedy festival could feature between two and 64 live events across Montreal. One of the busiest days would be July 27, when 64 live events are scheduled to transform the area. This is also when Kevin Hart is going to perform live at Monument-National with his show Hart to Heart.

He is going to be joined by Trevor Noah and Howie Mandel as guests. A day earlier, Mr. Noah is going to electrify the Bell Center in Montreal with his Loud & Clear show part of the 2019 tour.
