Published Apr 03, 2020As the time of self-isolation continues in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, more and more events are being postponed deep into the summer. The Just for Laughs festival was set to bring its 38th edition to Montreal in July, but it's now postponed.
Originally set to run from July 15 to 26, JFL will now take place from September 29 to October 11. More details on the fest will be revealed this summer.
President and CEO of the Just for Laughs Group Charles Décarie shared the following statement:
We are energized by the ability of our teams to adapt to current conditions and present a festival redesigned in its form and content as early as the fall. If the situation permits, we will resume work in the interim and thus be able to play an important role in reviving the cultural sector, but also in the social healing that we all need.
The teams in place at Just for Laughs worked hard to achieve this feat and look forward to offering Quebecers, and our International visitors the very best in comedy this fall. I would like to add that in doing so, they are also working to ensure that their colleagues return to the company as quickly as possible. So, we hope that our audiences will come in large numbers this Fall, and that together we can celebrate life that is resuming its course.
