You will literally laugh out loud.

I think it's safe to say that all of us have a Netflix account. And if you're not one of those people that are willing to pay the $9.99 monthly fee, you're probably using a roommates account... or in one of my friend's case, her ex-boyfriend's account. 

Needless to say, we've all got our hands on the world's number one streaming service. Whether you're into horror, chick flicks and even romantic comedies, Netflix is always there to save the day. They've even got a solid comedy section full of amazing standup acts

And this summer, you'll be able to see your favourite Netflix comedy acts live at The Just For Laughs Fest! Here's some of the top comedians you should check out before they arrive in Montreal:

Gad Elmaleh & Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld and Gad Elmaleh will be performing back-to-back performances for a one night only event to commemorate Just For Laughs' 35th Anniversary on Wednesday, July 26th at the Bell Centre.

And this isn't the first time they're working together. Both of them star in Bee Movie where an outgoing bee named Barry, takes a trip outside the hive and ends up on a balcony where he makes friends with a human (Renée Zellweger). During his trip, he finds out that humans are stealing honey from bees and realizes that his true calling is to obtain justice for his kind by suing humanity for theft.

Don't miss Bee Movie on Netflix and catch Gad and Jerry this summer in Montreal.

What's funnier than one comedian? Two comedians who look exactly the same! These two brothers are not only HILARIOUS but they also shared the screen with Channing Tatum on 22 Jump Street.

Honestly, Kate Berlant slayed during her time on Netflix's The Characters. The show featured eight comedians doling out their wildest sketch and improv routines, and Kate - also famous for her 555 original Vimeo series - seriously stood out. She'll be taking centre stage at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival this summer; you can get tickets to check out this rising star right here.


Dave Attell

Alright, can we talk about Dave Attell for a minute? This veteran New York City comic is hilarious, as he's proven time and time again on his overly funny Netflix special, Road Work. He'll be in Montreal this summer along with Jeff Ross, as co-headliners of the show Bumping Mics.
