Following the lineup announcements for The Nasty Show and The Ethnic Show earlier this year, Just for Laughs have revealed the first solo acts for this summer’s edition; Brit comic Jimmy Carr and and French comedian Gad Elmaleh!
The master of brutal one-liners, UK comic Jimmy Carr has long been a Montreal favourite, making regular appearances at the festival, including a slot on TheNasty Show last year. Carr’s standup special Funny Business was released by Netflix in March. He performs 5 shows at le Gesù, from July 25-30.
The multilingual Gad Elmaleh is one of the biggest comic stars in France, and he has developed a large following here as well, including a run of sold-out shows this past fall. Elmaleh will be bringing his new English show Oh My Gad to le Gesù for four performances, from July 26-29.
Pre-sale tickets for both show are onsale now via hahaha.com (password: JFLMTL). Regular onsale is this Wednesday, April 6 at 10am. Just for Laughs 2016 runs from July 13- 31, 2016. Stay tuned for further lineup announcements in the coming weeks.
