Just for Laughs (JFL), Montreal’s world-famous comedy series is looking to make waves during their 2018 summer festival. The popular event will be returning to Montreal for its 36th edition and has announced some serious star power with its first set of performers.

Two highly-anticipated galas, which take place at the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier at Place des Arts, will be hosted by Trevor Noah. The Emmy and Peabody-award-winning host of the Daily Show, known as one of the funniest men in late-night talk-shows, will be performing on Saturday, July 28, at 6 pm and 8:30 pm.

Breakout sensation Tiffany Haddish, who has quickly become one of the most sought-after comedic actresses in history, will be hosting her first ever JFL Gala in July.

She’ll be performing on Saturday, July 28 at 11 pm.

While more Galas will be announced in the upcoming weeks, JFL has also announced several solo shows.
