By Saturday after spending 5 days immersed in the biggest comedy festival in North America, it was time to wind things down, and so only a few photos of our last day at Just for Laughs, but they’re good ones. Saturday night we wrapped up the trip checking out Big Jay Oakerson’s Just For Laughs show- Andy Kindler, Mark Normand, the Roast Battle Wave and Ron Bennington all performed with Rich Vos and Big Jay Hosting. Followed that up watching Big Jay, Iliza Shlesinger, Roy Wood Jr., Brad Williams, Steve Rannazzis, and Mary Lynn Rajskub sing with the Goddamn Comedy Jam band at Le Balcon in a church so old and beautiful that you weren’t even allowed to bring bags in with you. Then while the lobby bar raged on, we opted to hang out front with the smokers outside the Hyatt. Here are a few parting shots.
It wouldn’t be a proper Just for Laughs Photo column with out a shot of Chris Cubas. Here he is hanging out with one of the funniest people in Montreal this week- Bonnie McFarlane.
Big Jay Oakerson hanging out with our own Amy Hawthorne after Big Jay’s What’s Your Fucking Deal crowd spilled out into the streets.
Rebecca Trent of New York’s The Creek and the Cave talking with Nick Turner in front of Cleopatra.
Couldn’t think of a better parting shot. Our very good friends Big Jay Oakerson and Ron Bennington close the WYFD show with Rich Vos at Just for Laughs and they killed. Everyone showed up for this show, packing into corners and even lining on the stairs. A really special night and a great time all around.

Thanks Just for Laughs! See you in 2017.
