The comedy lineup at the 41st edition of Montreal’s annual Just for Laughs festival has just gotten a bit longer.

On Wednesday, festival organizers announced that the likes of Leslie Jones, Ronnie Chieng, and Mike Ward would be added to the already impressive array of comedic star power. Other notable second-wave additions to the July lineup include Eddie Izzard, Mae Martin, Neal Brennan, Mike Ward, and Ramy Youssef.

According to a press release, over a dozen galas and concert shows have been added to the program.

Back in March, JFL announced its first wave of stand-up all-stars coming to Montreal this summer with the likes of Ali Wong, Russell Peters, Jack Whitehall, and Anthony Jeselnik.
