Here are 10 hilarious Just for Laughs shows you can still get tickets to

Jul 25 2022, 3:42 pm

Montreal’s Just for Laughs is not only one of the city’s biggest celebrations of the year, it’s also the largest international comedy festival in the world.

As a result, making last-minute plans to see that performer you love is usually not the best idea. Both locals and tourists go cuckoo for comedy at this time of year, and seats for big-name shows tend to fill up fairly quickly.

With that said, we decided to compile a list of top tier stand-up shows you can still get tickets to. If you see something you like, it’s best to whip out that credit card as soon as possible.
