The line-up for Montreal’s Just For Laughs New Faces of Comedy has been announced!

The annual series, known for showcasing some of the best rising comedians today, is an industry favorite and a jumping point for many future stars.

The New Faces are separated into categories for sketch performers (New Faces: Characters), comedians without managers (New Faces: Unrepped), Canadian comedians (Homegrown Comics), and regular New Faces, which is non-Canadian standups with managers.

If you plan on being in the Montreal area for the Just For Laughs festival, you can check out the shows at 5e Salle at Place-des-Arts, the MainLine Theatre and Katacombes, July 24th – 27th. The Homegrown Comic Competition will take place July 26 in the 5e Salle at Place des Arts.
