Just for Laughs Adds Ken Jeong, Iliza, Tom Green to 2018 Montreal Festival
Katherine Ryan, Howie Mandel, David Cross and Russell Peters are also among the new additions
Published May 16, 2018After making a first lineup announcement last month, organizers behind Montreal's Just for Laughs have unveiled another round of names set to take the stage at their 2018 festival.
The latest crop of comedians locked in for the festival includes Ken Jeong, Iliza, Tom Green, Maria Bamford, Katherine Ryan, Howie Mandel, Kenya Barris, Roy Wood Jr., K. Trevor Wilson, David Cross, Russell Peters and more.
They'll join a lineup that sports previously announced funny people Tiffany Haddish, Trevor Noah, Jimmy Carr, Jo Koy and Kevin Hart.
Just for Laughs' 2018 festival will run from July 11 to 29 in Montreal. As previously reported, the comedy company was recently sold to an ownership group led by Howie Mandel.
"This town, this festival means more to anything in my career," Mandel told the CBC. "Montreal is the city that accepted me."
He continued, "My dream has been to have Canada and Montreal and Just for Laughs recognized as the mecca of comedy. You know what Coachella is, even if you've never gone, everybody is talking about it. It's part of the pop culture... and that's what we have to do."
A press release notes that more lineup additions will be announced in the coming weeks. Further ticketing information can be found through JFL's official website.
