Get ready to mark your calendars for a laughter-filled event.

From Thursday, July 20 to Saturday, July 29, the iconic Just For Laughs Montréal is set to return with its free street festival, spreading joy in the Quartier des Spectacles. This event, sponsored by Beneva and in collaboration with Loto-Québec, promises an impressive lineup of free outdoor comedy events in both French and English.

On the Beneva main stage, you can look forward to performances by Marc Rebillet, known for his improvised funk and hip-hop electronic music, and Freestyle Love Supreme, a musical comedy show that transforms audience suggestions into humorous bits and fully realized musical numbers. Other performances include the FLTK Collective & Drennon Davis.

The Loto-Québec main stage will feature a variety of original acts, ranging from sketch comedy to live music, multi-comic performances, DJ sets, crowd work, and stand-up. The French programming will present numerous free outdoor shows featuring star headliners, including Rachid Badouri, Rita Baga, Alexandre Barrette, and Les Trois Accords, among others from the Juste pour rire lineup.

In addition to the outdoor festival, Just for Laughs MONTRÉAL is also preparing a memorable 41st edition with an impressive roster of comedy giants and rising stars who will be performing at the indoor festival running from July 14 – July 29. The lineup includes Ali Wong, Leslie Jones, Eddie Izzard, Russell Peters, Anthony Jeselnik, Mae Martin, Mike Ward, Jack Whitehall, Jonathan Van Ness, Trixie Mattel & Katya Zamo, Ronny Chieng, Neal Brennan, Ramy Youssef, Please Don’t Destroy Live, Darcy & Jer, Brad Williams, Foil Arms and Hog, Giggly Squad, Joanne McNally, The Lucas Brothers, and many others.
