CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2017 NEW FACES OF COMEDY FOR JUST FOR LAUGHS MONTREAL

By Joel Pace

Congratulations to the 2017 New Faces of Comedy for Just For Laughs Montreal

Here they are, they’ve auditioned multiple times, many of them for multiple years, to get here. A coveted spot in Montreal’s “New Faces” at Just For Laughs.

What used to just showcase stand-up comedians aiming for the big time from comedy club bookers, casting agents and development deals from the broadcast networks, has now expanded to include “Characters” who often show up on the short-lists for Saturday Night Live and other series, “Unrepped” to counter the trend in many New Faces already getting representation before Montreal, and new for 2017, “Creators” to recognize the funny people making videos, webseries and other projects online.

“For more than 20 years, the New Faces showcase at Just For Laughs has served as the launch pad for many of the biggest and most recognizable names in comedy,” says Bruce Hills, COO of the Just For Laughs Group. “We couldn’t be more proud to offer comedians this phenomenal showcase opportunity in front of some of the most important and influential people in the comedy business.”
