Sir Patrick Stewart Is Coming To Montreal This Summer

Captain Picard requires his own gala, make it so.
Sir Patrick Stewart Is Coming To Montreal This Summer

The Just for Laughs Festival starts in July and much like every year, there are many big names coming to Montreal. But there's one celebrity we've omitted from our list of famous people that will be visiting our city this summer, Sir Patrick Stewart.

Yes, Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself will be hosting his very own Just for Laughs Gala on July 22 at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier in Place des Arts. Now you're probably thinking, Patrick Stewart is awesome, but is he really funny enough to host a Just For Laughs gala? Perhaps you haven't noticed the comedic work he's done in the last few years, which tends to go unnoticed compared to his legendary portrayal of Professor Xavier in the X-Men movies.

Stewart has been doing cartoon voices for Family guy and the Simpsons for years. He even voices a recurring character in American Dad that looks just like him, who steals the show every time he appears on screen.
