Just for Laughs has some big annual traditions that comedy fans look forward to every year, but none bigger than The Nasty Show. For 26 years the legend Bobby Slayton hosted the longest running tradition at Just for Laughs, but lately JFL has been mixing it up. Being a part of The Nasty Show is the most coveted job in dirty comedy, and being asked to host the filthy show is indeed an honor. This year Robert Kelly will return to the Nasty Show, this time to host the show. Joining the line-up, comedic talent Brad Williams. He has appeared on numerous TV shows including Mind Of Mencia, Live at Gotham, the Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Pitboss. Brad’s show is high energy. Robin Williams called him “Prozac with a head.” Brad’s ability to make humorous observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are winning over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings.
The show runs a full two weeks, with one and sometimes two shows a night, usually selling out every show. Performers push boundaries, treading in dangerous territory, covering everything dirty, taboo, rude, offensive and raw. Past hosts include Slayton, of course, Artie Lange, Mike Ward Rich Vos and Brad Williams each took a turn hosting and last year Ari Shaffir served as Master of Ceremonies.
This years show will run from July 18th through 21st with additional shows running July 24th through 28th.
Just for Laughs also announced that Maz Jobrani will host the popular Ethnic Show, returning for its 10th installment at JFL running from July 11, 2018 – July 22, 2018 for 16 performances at Club Soda. Gina Brillon will join Jobrani on the Line Up.
