Just For Laughs 2017 in Photos: Part Deux of the Comedy Society Pages


Thursday at Just for Laughs Montreal everything started kicking into higher gear. At JFL, every day feels like a week, and even new arrivals to Montreal were starting to show some signs of fatigue after two nights of parties, an 80’s hip hop show, Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch cocktail party, and a lot of comedy. The day ended with a gigantic Comedy Central party that was going strong way into the wee hours with all the poutine you could eat, and incredible corned beef sandwiches courtesy of Schwartz’s.

This is our version of the society pages.  Enjoy!
