Hasan Minhaj had some choice words for Montreal, and his friend Simu Liu, during a red carpet appearance at the Just For Laughs Festival.
With signature deadpan delivery, he called out the amount of "French energy" and "'I'm better than you' energy" in the city.
"But this festival is really great," Minhaj said about Just for Laughs. "They kind of discovered me."
He brought his "King’s Jester" tour to Montreal as part of the festival. Just for Laughs then honoured Minhaj as stand-up comedian of the year during their annual award show in late July.
In a post about the award, Minhaj wished JFL a happy 40th anniversary and admitted it's "always fun to be back in MTL."
During his red carpet moment, Minhaj also called out actor Simu Liu, who organised a recent basketball charity event in Toronto.
"Simu stacked his team, so there was a conflict of interest. When you're doing a celebrity basketball game, you can't have former NBA players on your team. Dare I say, it was a huge sign of corruption on your part as an organizer and a host of the event," said Minhaj.
"Simu has a huge apology he owes all of us," he said.
Minhaj demanded an in-person and an Instagram apology from the Canadian actor.
"Not a story that will delete 24 hours later. I want an in-feed apology," he said. "Your move, Simu."
Liu then took his move, responding via Instagram story: "My court my rules," Liu wrote over the video of Minhaj's callout.
