Comedy is coming back to Canada’s biggest city.
On Tuesday, the return of Just For Laughs Toronto was announced with a big slate of headliners, including Trevor Noah, John Mulaney, Amy Schumer, Pete Davidson, and more.
The all-star lineup will appear for comedy shows in venues across the city from Sep. 22 to Oct. 1, along with an extensive daytime ComedyCON series.
“We are very much looking forward to returning to Toronto to celebrate our 10th festival anniversary this fall, and are excited to be bringing so much premium standup comedy to the city”, says Bruce Hills, president of Just For Laughs.
Noah takes centre stage at the Scotiabank Arena for two shows on the “Daily Show” host’s “Back to Abnormal” world tour.
Other announced headliners include drag duo Trixie & Katya, Iliza Shlesinger, Ben Schwartz, Maria Bamford, Marc Maron, and more.
Davidson and “Insecure” creator-star Issa Rae will each appear for In Conversation events in the festival’s ComedyCON section.
