Fun fact

Just for Laughs, called Juste pour rire in French, is an annual comedy festival held in Montreal. Founded in 1983, it is now the largest international comedy festival in the world! During the day, performers put on more physical, vocal, or visual comedy outdoors. At night, stand-up and other comedy shows take place in many of the city’s nightclubs and live theatres.
