Each year the Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival announces their New Faces of Comedy list, which is of course, the line up for their New Faces of Comedy Series. This annual list is always highly anticipated, as many young comedians who make the Just For Laughs New Faces list quickly go on to do great things.
Just last year, so many of the names who broke out at the Montreal New Faces show are already doing great things– names like Pete Davidson, Brooks Wheelan, Sam Morril, Chris DiStefano, and Mark Normand. In the past five years, Emily Heller, Joe Machi, Junior Stopka, Jerrod Carmichael, Ron Funches, Kumail Nanjiani, Pete Holmes, Chris D’Elia, Ali Wong, Dan St. Germain, Joe Mande, Rory Scovel and so many other big names were all a part of the New Faces show.
This year, the New Faces of Comedy series will run from July 23-25 in the 5e Salle at Place-des-Arts with repeat performances at The Wiggle Room and Mainline Theatre. Some of these names you might already know, and you’ll want to check them all out, especially if you’re in Montreal.
