Here Are 12 Just For Laughs Shows You Can Still See In Montreal

Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Laverne Cox and more!

Alright, I’ve been hearing a lot of talk lately about summer basically being over but I don’t know where people are getting this from. Yeah, the weather might not be the greatest this year but when it comes to things to do, Montreal is jam packed with fun activities all season long. 

So yah, it will probably continue to rain this summer but let me try and shine some light… Montreal is home to an abundance of festivals, the most popular of those being Just For Laughs.

And in case you didn’t catch any of the shows this year, you’re in luck because there is still one week left for you to see your favourite comedians!
