Watch some of Washington's best up-and-coming stand up comedians audition for the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada.
Every July, Montreal hosts the largest gathering of comedy industry executives from across the globe. For stand-ups, Just For Laughs is the most important and recognized career-booster around.
This lineup will feature New Faces trying to get their first big break for the chance to step on to the biggest stage in the world. Some of the many comics who launched their careers at Just For Laughs include Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Ali Wong, Jerrod Carmichael, Reggie Watts, Natasha Leggero, Colin Jost, Hasan Minhaj, Kumail Nanjiani, Mike Birbiglia, Gabriel Iglesias, Pete Holmes, Michelle Wolf, and Hannibal Buress. Catch these comics now before they become stars! And check out Inside Jokes, a six-part documentary series about JFL’s New Faces on Amazon Prime Video.
